Big Apple Bop sticks are easily identified by their extra-long taper and oversized acorn wood tip. When you combine it with the thinner overall body of the stick, you get plenty of definition with a big sound and quick bounce. Great for up-tempo ride patterns where you need to cut with agility and full tonal response.
Big Apple Swing sticks are the reverse of our Bop models to draw out a specific tone and feel on cymbals. They feature an undersized acorn wood tip that yields a controlled articulation for maximum clarity while allowing cymbals to breathe without overdriving. Great for light sounds. Combined with a medium-long taper, our Big Apple Swing sticks are perfect if you want to play with a full stick motion in quieter settings without your cymbals washing out.
