Mel Lewis 7D signature sticks

I ha w been using the Mel Lewis 7d model BopWorks sticks for a year now . I love the balance and feel of this model stick. I have always been a big fan of Mel Lewis and this initially piqued my interest in this model stick . I love the balance and feel of these sticks and especially love the sound of these sticks on cymbals . The small acorn. Was really enhanced the stick definition and keeps the overtones in check nicely . The only ask I have these is that I wish BopWorks would offer a lacquered version similar to what Regal Tip does . It would make gripping these sticks easier and the tips to last a bit longer .
Great Chop Sticks!!!

No way I thought! These are not very beefy, too light they'll break
on the opening set. Man was I WRONG! I have finally found a stick
that can sing at any volume. Great response no matter how you drive your DrumKit BOPWORKS has got your stick waiting for you.
love the mel lewis stick!

Authentic design, modern precision and consistency, and a long lost excellent transparency to the cymbal sound. Well done!!

You'd think a lighter Jazz stick would be limited in applications.
Not so- I use these in R&B settings as well as small Jazz trios/quartets.
Definitely my favorite stick from Bopworks, but I love them all...
The Ultimate Jazz Drumstick

I perform as Ringo Starr in the Beatles tribute 1964. In the pursuit of accuracy, I did extensive research of the different drumsticks that Ringo used. Being that they were vintage models like the Ludwig pencil stick, they're no longer in production. I stumbled across BopWorks' Mel Lewis drumstick. It feels vintage, it sounds vintage, and it's perfectly balanced. Need I say more? The ultimate jazz drumstick at a competitive price.
