The TX515 appeared on our recommended list for Drum Sticks from February 2020 until May 2021 when it had been out-ranked by other sets of sticks.
As the name implies, this stick is co-designed by Slipknot drummer Joey Jordison, with a slim neck and a full round tip.
This profile is designed to provide drummers with sticks that have good articulation and rebound, while having enough durability and projection for Jordison's style of heavy rock playing.
Although it does not have any impact in performance, Promark added an interesting spin to this signature model by adding Joey's actual blood into the red ink used on the signature.
Thankfully, only a trace amount of blood is used so we don't have to worry about Joey's blood pressure even with so many being sold.
Whether or not you're a fan of Slipknot, the Promark TX515W Joey Jordison Autograph will make a good addition for drummers who hit hard and play rock music.
Although this was previously on our recommended list, there are now more highly rated options available which you can see in our guide to The Best Drumsticks + Brushes & Mallets.
