Thanks to American Recorder Technologies, Inc., two new Liverpool drumstick models made of Abiurana, also known as Brazilian maple, are available in the United States: the Special Grip with a rubber anti-slip wrap, and the Luminous, painted with high-visibility luminous paint.
Special Grip Abiurana The Special Grip Abiurana drumstick has a traditional size with a rubber anti-slip wrap that provides a firm and comfortable grip, making them ideal if you pla in wet environments or have excessively sweaty hands.
Luminous Abiurana The Luminous Abiurana drumstick is painted with high-visibility luminous paint. The sticks stand out under traditional ultraviolet black light, making them ideal for highlighting drum showmanship during live performances. Luminous sticks are offered in neon orange and neon green.
Special Grip and Luminous drumsticks are available in 2B, 5A, 5B, and 7B sizes with wood tips.
About Liverpool sticks In most parts of the world, the name Liverpool likely sparks images associated with British bands such as the Beatles. In Brazil, however, Liverpool equals drumsticks, as the company is the country's largest manufacturer of drummer's tools. Over 150,000 pairs of drumsticks are made each month.
Part of Liverpool's success is Brazil's sprawling forests in a moist climate, which produces wood rich with long and dense fibers. The company employs an array of native hardwoods, such as roxinho (purple heart), jatoba (cherry), abiurana (maple), and marfim (ivory).
Brazilian hardwood drumsticks are denser than hickory sticks and are said to offer a solid feel and more control and power.
All drumsticks are produced using Brazilian woods grown from sustainable forests. No endangered species are used in the production of these products.
Of course, each pair of drumsticks is rigorously evaluated and inspected during the manufacturing process to meet the highest standards.
Liverpool started 22 years ago. Nowadays, the company offer a range of over 300 products in its line of drumsticks and accessories for drums and percussion.
