Whether you are a jazz drummer, in a rock band, indie band, covers band, metal band, country band or just practicing at home, then the Finley 5a is the stick that can get the job done for you. It is by far our most popular stick as it is appropriate for so many different playing environments. But did you know that it was originally designed for the drummers of Australia?
Finley sticks are the combination of everything that you love about a good pair of hickories. It has been tried and tested by you, the drummers of the world, using all forms of social media feedback to create what you wanted in a standard stick. everything was decided by drummers feedback from how heavy the laquer should be, to the dimensions, to the taper, to the half sawn off butt, right down to the tip being slightly more rounded for a warmer full tone sound. We wanted to create a stick so that any drummer from around the world could pick up a pair and immediately go “yep, that feels good.”
Finley drumsticks are made with first quality hickory and are paired to perfection, using both electronic testing and a human touch. All Finley’s drum kit sticks are made with the highest quality of hickory available, guaranteeing the best response, durability, resilience, tone and consistency in every pair.
Finley hickory sticks are dried to a 9% moisture content which is what Finley calls ‘the sweet spot.’ This is the perfect balance for a beginner to a pro. All our sticks have a 15% lacquer finish creating a feel that grips and won’t slip.The slightly rounded teardrop tip gives a warm tone and an excellent cymbal response.
