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.

  • Art Blakey centennial model drum sticks

    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!

    I play a wide variety of music - From Driving Rock to Americana, Country, and Jazz. These are my go-to sticks for each. They are super tough and highly responsive - from rolls to grooves to fills

    The more i use these the more i like them. Just enough girth to not feel like a small stick and the bead seems to bring out the higher overtones very nicely.
