The Art Blakey Centennial Edition stick.


One of hard Bop's greatest exponents, master of the

smokin' press roll of death. Decades of the leading the great

Jazz Messenger bands have earned him his place in history.

 The Art Blakey Centennial Edition has been reproduced exactly

from his 60's model stick - the longer taper and triangle tip

make this stick ideal for almost any application.


Every Bopworks stick is weighed in grams instead of ounces.

This ensures proper matching in every pair you buy.



Please note: we do not pitch pair our sticks.

    These guys make such great sticks, and they put so much love into every order. Every time I have the Art Blakey sticks in my hands my grip feels exactly how I want it to feel.

    The rectangular tip gives an elevated attack on drums and cymbals. The specs on this stick really felt great to me. Hope you continue to make this model, Bopworks. I will grab more if you make them.

    Weight and balance were disappointing. No comparison to my Gretsch Art Blakey model 1D drum sticks from 1970.

    These are amazing sticks. Perfect balance and bring out wonderful sounds on the cymbals. Bopworks makes the best sticks for jazz, hands down.

    haven't had this model before but after playing with them for an hour or so, I've come to really like the tip shape. Nice solid ping!

    These sticks and Bopworks are THE guys for vintage stick reproductions. The Blakey stick has all the strength and power you’d expect from Buhaina’s model but with the subtleties included for softer passages and roaring press rolls. Highly recommended!
