Excellent,

Clearly a wod tip, but is it 500-A or 500-B size?

well done. Bob

Nicely done!  Looks great!

Interesting angle!  Sort of a percussive version of the ol' arrow-thru-the-head gag!  :)

Can't see - did you sign it?

I did not sign it for a couple of reasons. One, I'm going to need to work with the section where the two pieces meet; you can see the seam. Two, the stick is so cool that I thought my signature would ruin it.  :)  Actually I like the idea of being able to have it for other things, if need be. So what I'm going to do is have my signature printed on a vinyl "static cling" type sticker where I can place it or remove it as needed. But first I have to make sure the sticker will cling to the wood. Ran out of time so didn't have it for the show.

Awesome job! It looks great. It's an eye catcher for sure.

A little bit better angle. Photo by Shad Gross of Not So Modern Drummer.


The lighting really stunk at Soundcheck; sorry.

How did you decide on the shape of the tip? Is the round tip your personnel preference?
