New Gavin Harrison Signature Stick

January 20, 2012 7:05 pm in Endorser & Company News by Web Team


Gavin Harrison’s work with King Crimson and Porcupine Tree has influenced drummers worldwide and set a new standard for progressive rock drumming. Born in England into a musical family, Gavin grew up listening to jazz greats like Miles Davis and Art Farmer. Early on, he realized that he was destined to be a professional drummer. As a musician, Gavin’s success has stemmed from his great stylistic versatility, so designing a stick to reflect that versatility was a must!

Gavin’s new signature stick is crafted in hickory and features an elongated ROCK shaft with a blended taper and tip, delivering an ideal combination of power and playability. Striking this balance was key to unlocking the raw energy, finesse and musicality for which Gavin is so well known. “Although large”, Gavin states, “My new signature sticks are extremely balanced and versatile enough to be played at all dynamics.” Gavin’s sticks also feature our anti-slip Vic Grip coating in blue, for an enhanced grip and distinctive look.
