The Art Blakey stick
One of hard Bop's greatest exponents, master of the
smokin' press roll of death. Decades of the leading the great
Jazz Messenger bands have earned him his place in history.
The Art Blakey model has been reproduced exactly
from his 60's stick - the longer taper and triangle tip
make this stick ideal for almost any application.
Every Bopworks stick is weighed in grams instead of ounces.
This ensures proper matching in every pair you buy.
Please note: we do not pitch pair our sticks.

Got these sticks for my brother. He really likes them. The weight is great and he said the sticks felt like they were flying as he played them. Ill definitely be back for more. :)
These guys make such great sticks, and they put so much love into every order. Every time I have the Art Blakey sticks in my hands my grip feels exactly how I want it to feel.
The rectangular tip gives an elevated attack on drums and cymbals. The specs on this stick really felt great to me. Hope you continue to make this model, Bopworks. I will grab more if you make them.
Weight and balance were disappointing. No comparison to my Gretsch Art Blakey model 1D drum sticks from 1970.
Great stick nice balance and weight
These are amazing sticks. Perfect balance and bring out wonderful sounds on the cymbals. Bopworks makes the best sticks for jazz, hands down.
haven't had this model before but after playing with them for an hour or so, I've come to really like the tip shape. Nice solid ping!
These sticks and Bopworks are THE guys for vintage stick reproductions. The Blakey stick has all the strength and power you’d expect from Buhaina’s model but with the subtleties included for softer passages and roaring press rolls. Highly recommended!
Great jazz sticks. I'm already rolling like Blakey. Thank you Bopworks. Great service. Will visit you guys again.
