The 7A is the slimmest stick in our Hornbeam series, slightly thinner and shorter than the 5A model. Nevertheless, the Hornbeam 7A drumstick has a stable shoulder. The light-colored hornbeam wood is visually and haptically striking. It is softer than Hickory, with a fine, open-pored surface that is not sealed with a finish (Natural). The tip has the classic acorn shape. The 7A Hornbeam drumstick is lightweight and versatile in use. The cymbal sounds turn warmer with sticks made of German Hornbeam.
