Craft + music
Pep Sola (professional drummer) and Pep Bassaganya (wooden craftsman) combine their knowledge to create quality drumsticks, designed by and for drummers.
Our intention is to offer handmade, high quality drumsticks, personally controlling each of the various operations and guaranteeing a quality product at an affordable price.
The drumstick: we work to achieve the excellence of what some professional drummers have defined as an “instrument”.
TOC sticks manufacture their drumsticks using 2 types of wood:
This tree, originally found in North America, provides the most commonly used wood for manufacturing drumsticks as, along with its hardness, it absorbs a great amount of the impact and allows to reduce fatigue in the hands and wrists.
This tree, originally found in the Mediterranean, is highly valued due to its density, which makes it possible to make sturdier drumsticks which are ideal for styles such as rock, metal… as they offer more volume and a greater definition of sound.
On the other hand, this greater wood density leads to slower stick wear, which in turn leads to extending the useful life of the stick (lasting between 3 or 4 times longer when compared with the drumsticks made from Hickory).
At TOC sticks we manufacture our drumsticks by taking care of the appearance, the resistance, the sound and the touch.
During the creation process of TOC sticks’ drumsticks, we put great emphasis on each of the steps to be followed in order to offer a quality product to our customers.
