The ProMark Classic Painted Forward 5B drumsticks feature an oval tip shape and a short taper, producing a forward-weighted feel for increased power. All models are painted using a specially formulated water based paint that is 100% toxin/carcinogen free. Drumstick tips are left unpainted to avoid transferring the color to drumheads and cymbals.
The 5B is a standard diameter drumstick for the heavy hitter. A large general purpose stick for rock, pop, punk and pop perfect for when a 5A is too small and a 2B is too big. "The Natural" series is not coated with the standard lacquer finish and provides a natural wood feel in the hands of the player.
