Techra presents XCarb: the lightest, fastest powerful drumsticks available to the modern drummer. You won't believe how light these XCarb sticks are, and the speeds that you can achieve as a result will amaze your fellow drummers! Players using these light weight drumsticks will experience noticeably less fatigue whilst playing, allowing for extended play times and intensity that doesn't let up. In terms of sound, XCarb produces some of the best tones ever from non-wood sticks. XCarb is the "Rolls Royce" of Carbon sticks! Thanks to Techra's anti-vibration system you will find unwanted vibrations reduced considerably and this also contributes to the perfect balance of the XCarb sticks. In the words of Peter Yttergren (who plays for Bobby Kimball formerly of Toto), "Impressive sticks! Perfect balance and weight, XCarb lets me play with finesse, speed and power, but with less effort and stress!" How many pairs of wooden drumsticks do you break? With XCarb, you will find that your sticks last as much as four times longer than their wooden equivalents. The benefits of moving away from wooden drumsticks don't stop here though. Techra drumsticks are made from sustainable materials. Do something good for the environment - Leave the wood in the forest, use Carbon!
Drummers have always appreciated the optimum rate between stiffness and weight that wood offers. No other material can naturally offer that. To be fast and effective, drummers have always needed something light, to keep them from getting tired, and stiff to get the right sensibility on toms and cymbals.
Techra has developed and tested many different synthetic compounds and tuned some specific composites, not trying to replicate wood, but just looking for a way to offer drummers a more open vision to playing drums, a way to find new inspiration.
