Zildjian Gauge Drumsticks are designed for all styles of music. Each of the four models (6, 8 , 10 and 12 gauge) have a different diameter, but feature a consistent length, taper, and the new ‘fusion’ style tip shape, a hybrid between the popular acorn tip and round tip. The change in size between each gauge is proportional, allowing a seamless adjustment when using each model. The 12 Gauge drumsticks provide more volume with less effort, allowing for more power with great throw and rebound around the drum kit. The Gauge Series sticks are made in Maine from USA Hickory and each pair is weight-matched, tone-paired and guaranteed straight.
