Vic Firth Steve Smith Tala Wand Rods have outstanding rebound and sound.
Steve Smith TW11 Tala Wand
A foam center is surrounded with bamboo dowels wrapped in thin PVC. Great balance and rebound, while naturally producing a lower volume.
Steve Smith TW12 Tala Wand
The Vic Firth TW12 Tala Wand is constructed of a foam center surrounded with birch dowels wrapped in thin PVC. Cool!! While the shaft is thicker than the TW11, the lighter weight of the birch dowels actually helps create a lighter touch and lower volume.
