How often have you been playing drums and then when you really get into the gig, perspiration kicks in and then your sticks fly out of your hand? Well ProMark have the solution to this problem, which has plagued drummers across the world when the heat is on.

Introducing the ActiveGrip drumsticks - a model of drumstick, which becomes tackier when the player's hands produce more sweat and moisture. This new technology results in a better overall grip.

There are 9 models available, including signature sticks from Winery Dogs drummer and former Dream Theatre member Mike Portnoy. Other models are available in Forward Balance 7A, 5A and 5B. Rebound Balance versions are also available in 7A, 5A and 5B.

ProMark said: "It applies thin like a traditional lacquer adding no additional diameter or weight to the stick. Unlike most grip alternatives on the market ActiveGrip doesn't tear up players hands or cause restrictions to range of movement or technique."
