Title: Drumsticks

Abstract: An improved drumstick or percussion striking device wherein the device consists of an elongated member having a striking tip at one end a handle butt at the end remote from the tip and a protrusion or bump intermediate the tip and butt, thus spaced axially from each but more proximate to the tip than to the butt, thereby enabling the percussionist to strike the same object with both tip and protrusion or two objects one with tip and one with protrusion. The elongated member may be a unit or two individual parts solidly interconnected, one called the shaft portion and one called the handle portion. The tip and protrusion may be a part of the member or may be separate and frictionally engaged therewith. An axially disposed oval hand grip on the handle portion and structure for adding weights either to the joint between the two portions or at the butt end of the handle to weight the stick to the percussionists desire. The tip and bump produce as used by the percussionist a variety of sought after sounds.
