Promark TX515 Joey Jordison Autograph Series Drum 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.

Pros
Owners of these sticks are happy with the weight and balance, which many describe as perfect for the heavy hitting requirements of modern grunge and rock styles. They're also commended for being durable, be it for use on acoustic or electronic drums.

Cons
These sticks are not meant for low volume applications, you may want to have a separate set of sticks for that. There are some who report stick breakage earlier than they expected.

Overall
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.
