How Drumsticks Are Made

Jared Falk  /  UPDATED Aug 22, 2022

The good folks over at Pro-Mark and D’Addario were kind enough to give us a tour of their factory so we could learn exactly what goes into making the perfect drumstick. You’ll see the processes for cutting, grading, sorting, drying, grinding, finishing, inspecting, and pitch matching (yeah… There are a lot of steps).

From tree trunk to drumstick, all the steps in between can be found right here.

Jared Falk is a lifelong drummer, drum teacher, and the co-founder of Drumeo. For over 18 years, Jared has been a leader in the online music education industry, publishing his first online video lessons in 2003 and founding Musora in 2005.
