Hickory is the most popular wood used for making
drumsticks. Hickory is denser, heavier and more
rigid than Maple. Hickory can also absorb a great
amount of shock, which reduces hand and wrist
fatigue. Dark, or "brown" hickory, is found
closer to the tree's center and is slightly
denser and heavier than "white" hickory.
