A stick that is excellent for rock music. Zildjian designed the Taylor Hawkins drum stick to be similar to a 5B but features a large, round tip for full tones. Plus it provides great projection but is well-balanced for stick work. Taylor's stick also carries his signature as well as his distinctive tattoo Hawk artwork for a truly unique appearance.
