   BOPWORKS  "40's Swing Classic"

 

   Faithfully recreated from the exact model 40's stick

played by one of Swing Music's greatest drummers*.

The Swing Classic captures the sound of the 40's

with its the traditional triangle tip and taper.

Versatile, perfect for the Jazz trio up to big band.

Relive the 40's with sticks that helped define the music.

 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.

  • Excellent balance and rebound. Ability to change cymbal tones. Very similar to the Art Blakey Model, but smaller diameter.

    I like them enough to want another pair. My only criticism is that one stick of the pair I got was warped. When I roll it on a flat surface it wobbles considerably. Let me know when more come in please and I will re-order another pair. Thank you

  • Sweet Swing!

    These sticks are very true to the original 40's model. They feel great in the hands, light and fast around the kit. Splendid job BOPWORKS, and thank you for making such a iconic, classic model drum stick.

    Perfect weight and length for me. Taper is a little thin. But this is my new stick from now on. I’ve spent a FEW dollars on sticks lately but I found the ones. If bopworks could make the bird land model specs with the diameter and length of this stick , perfect would be the word.

    good big band stick, but I can't see myself using this on much else. Good for Sing, Sing, Sing :)

    The Classic 40’s Swing Classic brings out the sweetest tones of the ride cymbal. Light, nice wood sound that brings out the wanted frequencies of the cymbal. However, they lack weight. They’re simply too light for my taste. Which is a bummer because this would have been my STICK!

    I have used the standard American Classic 5A sticks for many years, but playing with Bopworks 40's Swing Classic is what feels like I am truly stepping into vintage classic drumming and playing to Benny Goodman as well as Topper Headon's Clash songs.

    Great drumsticks, the sound is well defined for the cymbals and the drums. I thought they balanced well with the drum set and the style of music that we play(1940s Big Band). I have tried various other sticks including models marketed at big band models these sticks are great. They can be soft or loud. Will be trying more products from Bopworks. Highly recommend to give them a try.
