Rock Twist Rods
A TWIST above the rest!
Creative Percussion Twist Rods Multi-Rods are built to last!
The Rock Twist Rods model is one of our original models. They, along with the Jazz and Jazz Lite models, started it all!!
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 Rock, Jazz, and Jazz Lite models come with your choice of butt-end.
Choose one of four options for ends:
1. Vinyl caps for a more traditional feel.
2. Rubber butt-ends for a great counterbalance and the ability to get some amazing cymbal swells or tom rolls with more attack than a standard mallet.
3. Wool felt mallets for a softer feel with more sound and less attack during cymbal swells and tom rolls. The felt mallet ends are factory applied and cannot be removed.
4. You can get both the vinyl caps and rubber butt-ends so you can change them out to suit your needs. If you choose the "both" option, the rods will be sent with the rubber butt-ends applied.
All Twist Rods come with an "O" ring* to give you the control and adjust-ability to get an open fat brush effect or closed tight stick sound and feature an extended heat-shrink grip-wrap to give extra protection to the rim shot zone. The extended wrap covers the Creative Percussion exclusive aluminum ring at the end of the shaft. The aluminum ring gives you more articulation when hitting the cymbal.
*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.
