These sticks are from our "2nd beat" collection which contain sticks from custom orders that ended up with small defects such as stamping errors or uneven bead cuts. Since our sticks are handmade, sometimes there are mess ups. These sticks are still perfect to use.
Handmade "Malibu Sticks"
Diameter: 5/8 inches
How they are made:
Each pair of sticks are made from high quality, handpicked, handcut hickory trees from Ohio. Whether you order a base pair or a customized pair, we don’t whip out the hand saw and marker until you order. The slab is cut in our swellshop in San Diego and all standard orders contain our signature "sick bead" which is our take on the Taj Mahal bead. We won’t bore you with the details of how each pair are individually placed on a lathe and then carefully tapered, sanded, and stained with the highest of quality control in-between. No robots, machines, or assembly lines. Just human touch which provides the longevity and durability our drummers love. Dependent upon which pair you purchase-- a multi dye dip may be applied and hung out to dry in the fresh So-Cal air by the beach.
Each pair of drum sticks are handmade to order in our Swell Shop in San Diego, CA. The signature "Malibu Stick" by SWELLGEAR from the SWELL-STICK line is our straight forward & no frills pair. Made from the highest grade of hickory wood and most notable for the natural feel, style shine, extra bounce, and crisp sound. Custom size orders are available upon request on our website. Please Note:Each pair will have their own personality as they are handmade. Please allow up to 10 days for your order to be made and shipped.
