Exotic woods are obtained from Central and South America and Africa to produce a variety of bass and snare sticks in different weights, sizes and styles. There are no special names for the sticks other than the period they define. The selection of any stick is up to the drummers who desire a certain weight, length and feeling in their respective hands.
Shown above in the top row are sticks of Ebony, Cocobolo, Rosewood, and Civil War replicas in Ebony and Cocobolo. In the foreground are felt tip bass beaters, larger snare sticks and bass sticks of Cocobolo, Maple and Grenadilla.
