“Not Just Another Pretty Stick”, Hot Sticks® Introduces ArtiSticks™ Graphic Drumsticks.

Hot Sticks Manufacturing Co., Inc., makers of the original Hot Sticks® and Macrolus™ colored drumsticks, has announced the availability of its exclusive, new ArtiSticks™ Series. According to Hot Sticks’ founder and president, Kevin Pokallus, ArtiSticks’ unique combination of advances in drumstick design, manufacturing and performance makes them much more than just another pretty drumstick.

“ArtiSticks are the result of years of research and development and our uncompromising commitment to excellence,” Pokallus comments. “The first and only drumsticks of their kind, ArtiSticks are made from top-quality USA hickory with intense, full-color graphics applied using our proprietary, patent-pending processes. Strong, durable, comfortable and beautiful, they’re everything you’ve always wanted in a drumstick, and more— to borrow another famous saying.”

ArtiSticks are currently available in a selection of popular 5A, 5B, 7A, 2B and ROCK wood and nylon tip models, featuring:

  • The comfort and confidence of premium-grade U.S.A. Hickory; hand-selected for weight, density and strength.
  • The integration of over a dozen proprietary production processes to create drumsticks that are among the smoothest, straightest, most consistent in the industry.
  • Exclusive, full-color graphics that won’t rub off on hands, drums or cymbals and are available in a wide choice of patterns and finishes, including several skull and dragon tattoo styles as well as colorful tribal, ethnic and patriotic prints.

Giving new meaning to the term “the art of drumming”, ArtiSticks have a suggested retail of $14.95 per pair and are now available at leading drumshops and music stores. Custom ArtiSticks for events, schools, bands and drum corps are available by special order. For further details please visit Hot Sticks at or call 228-467-6596.
