HINGESTIX® Practice Drumsticks, a learning tool that reinforces proper grip, finger technique, and rebound so drummers can play more easily with increased speed and precision.
What Are HINGESTIX®?
HINGESTIX® Practice Drumsticks, a learning tool that helps drummers understand proper grip, finger technique, and rebound so drummers can play more easily with increased speed and less fatigue.
The patented contoured swivel pads rotate to allow drummers the feel of an unencumbered, free floating stroke.
HINGESTIX Practice Drumsticks simulate a loose grip so drummers can remember what they can feel when using their regular drumsticks.
HINGESTIX Practice Drumsticks are great for learning:
- Single strokes using the rebound. Like bouncing a basketball, the HINGESTIX simulate a loose grip where bouncing becomes easier
- Learning the double bounce for your “open” roll. Just throw the stick down once and let the stick bounce free for that 2nd stroke
- Learning the all important “buzz” stroke for your long or “closed” roll
- Learning finger technique for more control and speed
- Learning proper grip by holding the red swivel pads between the thumb and index finger (or 3rd finger), and gently feeling the back fingers underneath the stick

From Ed Soph ~ an American jazz drummer and educator.
"I've been practicing with the HingeStix Sam. What an absolutely brilliant innovation. They really establish a natural grip in a non-intimidating manner. They affirm that musical control comes from degrees of looseness, not tightness. You need to get these in the hands of Music Ed non-percussionist grad students who teach percussion methods classes!”
