Beautiful sticks. The consistency and feel is immaculate and the wood engraving is a fine touch. The weight and feel of the sticks contain substance with a lightness that helps glide from beat to fill. From first touch, to practice and to the real thing; they only felt better. To have the luxury of a sustainable stick and an authenticity that is immortalised in a personalised hand written note, it literally brought a tear to the eye. Not only a great product, but hope for the future. Thank you.
P.s. I can only assume that the money I was refunded was based on a lower shipping cost. This is how people appreciate people. First Class 👌🏽
Thanks so much for the review and the extremely kind words, Thomas! Now you're bringing a tear to MY eye. Ha. This means a lot, more than I can say. Also...yes. You were refunded the difference in shipping costs as Magic Room Brand can often get a lower bulk rate. Bam! Enjoy it, keep in touch, and yes....let's all keep appreciating each other. Be well out there.
Ever since becoming a MagicRoomBrand artist I have NOT looked back!! These picks have become my go-to. The look, the feel.. everything is just RIGHT!
My favorite are the bamboo grass picks with standard thumb grip and a finger notch. They fit PERFECTLY in my grip. I even LOVE the clarity and bright sound they bring that's especially noticable on an accoustic guitar.
These sticks felt perfect from the moment I took them out of their handy, reusable bag! I play mostly snare drum in my apartment, and I was looking for a pair of eco-friendly sticks that would be light enough for quiet playing, but also solid and fast for practicing rudiments, rolls, and sight reading. Magic Room Brand definitely pulls this off! I especially like how buzz rolls sound with these sticks. I teach bucket drumming at a local elementary school, and I look forward to trying these sticks out on a bucket.
Nathan - Thanks so much for your review and I'm so glad you love them. Being a drummer in an apartment isn't easy...so I hope you are entertaining your neighbors with some mad beats. Ha. So cool about bucket drumming! Send a video over when/if you can. I'd love to see it! Thanks again so much and be well!
Happy with my decision to try Magic Room Brand. Love the way both sticks and picks feel and excited to become a consistent customer. Thanks so much. Packing and Shipping both excellent.
My fiancè is really happy with this box. I'll probably do a full year subscription for him when we get our tax returns. He does want new drum heads though, so we'll see. lol
Deanna - So glad that he loved it and thanks so much for the note and review! Keep in touch and hope to see you again after those sweet, sweet tax returns...although I totally understand the need for new heads, too. Ha. Let's make 2020 great and thanks so much again!
I switched from dipped Ziljian 7As to these drum sticks. Their a little bit longer which works to my advantage and their not easy to break. I’ve broken 1 in the past 6 months of receiving these. Their sturdy and last a long time.
This crate hit the sweet spot for gift-giving to musician brother: he was out of sticks & picks before his xmas bday. He immediately opened the package and set about tutoring his son in drumming. Then grandpa took over. Sweet all-around. SUPER fast ship, easy tracking, friendly customer service!
I sent the bamboo sticks to my hubby as a thank you, and he was so spurprised! He had never played with bamboo. Since playing with them a bit he says they are light and dreamy, not like his usual maple. He’s playing in a musical this fall and they will be absolutely perfect!
I've been a customer for about a year and just love the weight and quality of the bamboo guitar picks. I recommend them to all my friends, lovers and kung fu partners.
Really have had amazing experiences purchasing from Magic Room. The products are like a French kiss from Billy Dee Williams - smooth, delicious and mind boggling in a really good way - and the service is similar to Julie McCoy on "The Love Boat" (beyond reproach).
Guitar picks and drum sticks were awesome and of very good quality.
I was very pleased with how quickly the package arrived and the condition it arrived in.
This has quickly become one of my favorite sticks of all-time. For reference, I've been using the Stephen Perkins signature stick from Promark for years. It took me a long time to find a stick that just felt perfect in my hands and when I finally found them, I just kept buying them over and over again. That lasted right up until I found Magic Room. I discovered Magic Room while searching for sticks that were sustainable and eco-friendly. Whenever I break a drumstick, which is often, I always feel a pang of guilt for all the trees I've killed over the years. This stick, made from bamboo, is just as strong if not stronger and takes me just as long if not longer to break as any wooden stick I've used. They are also incredibly light, which allows me to execute fills more quickly and efficiently than I would normally be able to with a conventional stick. The lightweight also reduces fatigue, which comes in handy when plowing through a marathon jam/practice sesh or getting through a long set list. The customer service is the best I've ever encountered. After ordering two pairs, I signed up for a monthly subscription. The only thing better than these sticks is the company that makes them.
My boyfriend is a musician and I normally never try to buy anything related to his craft because I am not really knowledgeable about instruments and their supplies. I took a chance and bought the 5b bamboo drum sticks and he was really impressed! He's all about quality and was excited to have drum sticks that will last for a long time. Thank you so much for offering these great items!
My current band - St Francis & The Wolf - requires me to play in several different styles. From jazz, to blues, to swing, to rock. I was looking for a stick that can help me shift between and within songs. The bamboo model 7A not only meets my needs, but they are strong enough to last several gigs without breaking. They are my go to sticks from now on!

I was skeptical, yet always looking for ways to avoid consuming plastic. So, my motivation for buying these was environmental. I am super pleased with these picks! The craftsmanship and quality are great, they sound and feel awesome. I am very excited that I found Magic Room!!
These sticks are so reliable I prefer them over the rest! You also don't have to feel self conscious about deforestation cuz these are actually bamboo grass sticks and 100% biodegradable! amazing idea amazing designs and affordable sticks
I've been beating on Drums off & on for a few years, just for fun. I've watched a few instructional videos, and only recently, actually, taken my first lesson. So, I would hesitate to even call my self a novice. Therefore, I don't have enough of a delicate touch to describe things like, balance point, deflection, etc.
I use "American Grip". I, also, play on an old set of Roland Mesh Head E-Drums, so I cannot speak to their particular sound or tone, nor how long they would last on Acoustic Drums. Additionally, many years ago, I broke & dislocated my left hand in several places, and when they set my Ring Finger it is straight, but rotated slightly incorrectly and when I grip simething it leaves a gap from my middle finger, and slightly over laps in my pinky, and my ring finger doesn't close completely.
Therefore I can't really cradle the butt of the stick with those 2 fingers, evenly. Fatter 2B sticks are easier for me to hold in the front part of my hand, but are too heavy.
These are even lighter than my Ahead Lars Ulrich Sticks. Great for fast notes, but less feel/swing than I prefer for slower or more heavily grooved songs (which is always the trade off with any sticks). My natural correction for this is to make longer strokes, and feel like I need to put more force into them. However, then I'm...
Thought I'd try a bamboo guitar pick... WOW! On my acoustics I notice a much brighter, fuller sound and the clarity of the sound was greatly enhanced as compared to conventional plastic (including Tortex) picks. Just awesome. I'll be back for sure!
