“In a past life,” Russ exclaims, “I had to grind down my acorn tips to create better cymbal tones. So with my signature stick design, we started with a ‘half acorn’ shape that makes an unbelievable difference in the riding sound of your cymbals. It literally makes the cymbal have more clarity and attack. It’s like a Hi-Def booster for your cymbals and drums!!

I also used to have trouble on studio dates where every time I would switch to the cross-stick technique, I would miss getting the full sound that occurs when you hit the ‘sweet spot’. The quicker the turn around, the worse it was. I knew that if I could get the ‘sweet spot’ visible, I could watch it during the switch-over and confirm the perfect placement every time. And that is why we created the specially designed ‘sweet spot’ logo to aim for!”
