The Matt Garstka Signature Stick was designed with a unique alchemy of taper, tip, and weight, providing the perfect symmetry between power, speed, balance, and sound.


Matt set out to design a stick that could be agile without losing its structural integrity. This stick definitely has beef, but a blended tip and long taper provide awesome finesse and speed.


As the rhythmic foundation behind prog-metal's most talked-about band, Animals As Leaders, Matt Garstka has been establishing new paradigms for contemporary drummers since his graduation from Berklee College of Music in 2011. While commonly referred to as a rhythmic scientist due to his mastery of highly technical rhythms and time signatures, it's Matt's ability to lay the technical wizardry into a deep-seated groove that has driven his meteoric rise in the drumming community.


The diameter is halfway between the 55A and the Buddy Rich Signature Stick and is 16" in length. The way the profile blends seamlessly from the shaft, through the taper, and into the tip is key to producing amazing flex and response and a clear, full-bodied sound on the cymbal.


"This stick's a chopper, but you can smash with it too. To me, it's the best of both worlds," states Matt.
