Zildjian offically announces the introduction of the Dave Grohl Artist Series Drumstick model which prominently features metallic, two-color artwork of Grohl’s famous tattoos on both of his arms. The new Grohl drumstick is scheduled for introduction in September 2011 to coincide with the 20th anniversary of the release of Nirvana’s ground-breaking album, Nevermind. One of the world’s most influential drummers, Grohl has played with Nirvana, Queens of the Stone Age, Probot, Them Crooked Vultures, and others. Grohl can also be seen sitting behind the drum kit with the Foo Fighters from time to time.
The new Dave Grohl Artist Series Drumstick model also features large dimensions, a length of 16 3/4” and diameter of 0.600” for extra power and reach as well as an acorn-shaped tip for sound clarity. Crafted from 100% U.S. Select Hickory, the preferred wood for drum set sticks, its overall design is especially well suited for Rock applications where power, rebound, and durability are critical. According to John Sorenson, Zildjian’s Director of Sales Planning and Drumsticks, “Dave blends his own powerful technique with the styles of the influential drummers of the past to push the limits of music. He truly embodies what it means to be a great drummer.”
