CPA Bigfoot Twist Rods
A TWIST above the rest!
Creative Percussion Twist Rods are built to last!
All of our Twist Rods models are made in the USA from domestically grown Birch and Poplar dowels, hand-dipped in lacquer for more durability. Their grips are all fully glued, not just spot glued in a few places. All models, apart from the Kendo Rods, have our signature, patent-pending twist which allows for more rebound, a fatter sound, and more flexibility in the dowels. Our grip-wrap is a thicker PVC wrap, which is a more durable material than the typical polyolefin you find in most other brands.
The BIGFOOT Rods come with vinyl caps for a traditional feel and feature the "O" ring* to give you the control and adjust-ability to get an open fat brush effect or closed tight stick sound. They are made to have the same durability as our original models (Rock, Jazz, and Jazz Lite), the difference is, these models have more dowels and a shorter grip-wrap which allows the additional dowels more room to move. The extra movement gives them even more of a full, fat tone. With the use of the included “O” ring*, you can dial in the right amount of dowel movement and create the sound you're looking for. The feel is light and airy in the open position, making even double stroke rolls a breeze.
*We suggest storing all Twist Rods in the open position with the "O" rings where the grip-wrap meets the open dowels for the best results. Storing Twist Rods in the closed position, with the "O" rings at the playing tip may result in a lesser dowel flare over time.
These Twist Rods are truly as unique as their namesake, "BIGFOOT".
