Vic Firth HingeStix SD1 Training Drum Sticks - Product Information

The HingeStix® were designed as a learning tool by drummer, percussionist, clinician and author, Sam Ruttenberg, to force drummers to hold their drumsticks correctly. Adjustable plastic swivel pads position the thumb, index finger and middle finger for the perfect fulcrum. The exact balance point is achieved every time the player picks up these sticks. Additionally, the player will develop proper finger technique to playing with no fear of hand fatigue. Players of all ages are guilty of holding the sticks too tightly. These practice sticks create an experience where your playing becomes much smoother.

Two plastic swvel pads unscrew and can be adjusted to a secondary hole location which allows the player to choose the balance point best suited for the size of their hands.

HingeStix® are also available in 5A.

Helpful Tool

Comments:

Have two friends living in different states that are percussion professionals and teach young students. One has used these stick before I told him about them and the other was not aware of them. The former said the few students that used them found them helpful and the latter is going to recommend them to a couple of his students for the same reason. So it appears to me that these HingeStix are probably a great development tool for certain children and adults new to drumming who play with a matched grip. Not helpful if you play with a traditional grip.
