How Drumsticks Work

All Rotating objects try to rotate around its Center of Gravity. The Drumstick is no exception. The stick is rotated through grip to turn down to strike the drum. Upon striking the drum, the stick wants to rotate center of gravity the stick will what to rotate at its center of gravity. This gives us 2 different axis of rotations. Result is a “Wobble” A unbalanced tire on a car, wobbles off balance. The stick fights you. Limiting speed and control. Balance each stick. We begin by drilling a hole in end a drumstick. Then define the Existing Center of Gravity (CG) of the drumstick. (Wood CG in Unstable) Then we re-establish a new CG, This new balance point allows the stick much improved performance
