For some time now drummers have been trying to incorporate the sound of a shaker into their kit. Many players have tried to hold or tape small EGGZ Shakers while holding a drumstick. While these attempts had some success, there were obvious and clumsy drawbacks. To solve this problem and give players an easy and solid solution, Rhythm Tech has teamed up with NYC session great and educator Billy Ward to develop the Stickball®, a great percussive shaker/effect that will easily slip on and off any drum stick. The Stickball offers a classic dry shaker sound that minimizes the weight/feel changes of putting a shaker on a drumstick. Easy on and off the stick and holds securely without the use of a wing nut or other tightening mechanism. “What took you so long?” – is the reaction we’ve been getting from drummers and retailers who have seen and played Stickball®.
