   BOPWORKS  "40's Swing Classic"


   Faithfully recreated from the exact model 40's stick

played by one of Swing Music's greatest drummers*.

The Swing Classic captures the sound of the 40's

with its the traditional triangle tip and taper.

Versatile, perfect for the Jazz trio up to big band.

Relive the 40's with sticks that helped define the music.


Bopworks sticks are pitched paired and weighed in grams.

This ensures proper matching in every pair you buy.

  • These sticks are what I've been comfortable with. Began using them when they were sold by Slingerland Drums

    It appears the new 40"s Swing Classic are a bit thicker than the old model. I was used to the thinner older model, and liked those for light playing and quieter jazz settings.

  • Great feel and sound

    These sticks are not the typical heavy feeling sticks from other companies. Too often, other sticks lack that clarity on cymbals. Bopworks provide that clarity we all want.

    So glad these are available again.,!

  • Excellent balance and rebound. Ability to change cymbal tones. Very similar to the Art Blakey Model, but smaller diameter.

    Very well engineered and well crafted. GK would be pleased!

    I like them enough to want another pair. My only criticism is that one stick of the pair I got was warped. When I roll it on a flat surface it wobbles considerably. Let me know when more come in please and I will re-order another pair. Thank you

  • Sweet Swing!

    These sticks are very true to the original 40's model. They feel great in the hands, light and fast around the kit. Splendid job BOPWORKS, and thank you for making such a iconic, classic model drum stick.
