AHEAD Products announces the launch of Frank Zummo’s Signature Drumstick ($36.49 MSRP; $29.99 street). As a member of the AHEAD family since 2001, Zummo had been using Tommy Lee’s Signature Drumstick for years. The company states that it wanted to create a model for Zummo that was similar to Lee’s, while also unique to Zummo’s growth as a drummer, and versatile enough to handle the many different musical styles that he plays.

The new FZ Drumstick is similar in length to the Tommy Lee Studio, but it uses a long taper cover and is 3 grams lighter. Because it is far less top heavy, Zummo says he has noticed less overall fatigue and can play longer and faster with less effort.

The FZ Drumstick offers the company’s new Hyper-Form Engineered swaging process for a longer life span, and it promises 50-percent less shock than wood drumsticks, while reportedly lasting six to ten times longer than wood drumsticks, and is said to offer 5-percent more rebound than wood drumsticks.

A high precision alloy core offers consistent weight and balance variations of less than 1 percent. The FZ model also features AHEAD’s Built-in Vibration Control System (VRS), as well as replaceable covers, tips, and rings, and its nylon tip provides a brighter, more articulate sound.
