At Winter NAMM 2017, Promark by D’Addario launched two boutique stick bags for working drum set players: the Sliver Essentials Stick Bag ($32.99 MSRP) and the Transport Deluxe Stick Bag ($62.99 MSRP). Made from durable, weather-proof ballistic nylon and synthetic leather, these bags are built to withstand the rigors of the road. Both bags feature metal hanging hooks that affix to the tension rods of a drum, keeping them secure while playing.
The Sliver Essentials Stick Bag is part of a new, high-quality line of stick bags designed with the gigging musician in mind. With enough room to fit four pairs of drumsticks comfortably, this bag allows drummers to travel with the essential tools for any gig without extra trips back to the car.
The Transport Deluxe Stick Bag features magnetic secured, leather carrying handles, a large front-zippered pocket, a zippered interior pocket, metal hanging tom-mounts, a leather business card slot, a metal key leash, a pencil slot, a deluxe leather pocket for your wallet and cell phone, and ample drumstick storage. With a specific spot for all of your personal belongings, there’s no need to worry about misplacing things during your gigs.
In addition, Promark by D’Addario and Kimberly Thompson, whose credits include Beyoncé, announced the launch of the drummer’s official signature stick ($18.90 MSRP) to celebrate her recent welcoming to the Promark family. Having played with, Kimberly Thompson teamed up with Promark to make a 7A drum stick with a wood tip, measuring .535″ in diameter and featuring an extra half-inch in length (16.5″) for a little extra reach and ease of play. The Kimberly Thompson Signature Stick has an elegant gold flake painted finish.
“This stick achieves the perfect balance and weight which accommodates a variety of musical applications and players’ performance styles,” Thompson says. “The long taper and small round tip allow for a responsive stick with clear articulation on drums and cymbals.”
