"Soft" Hemp Stalk Mallet Percussion Sticks


Designer: Hemp Tempo



The body is raw hemp stalk, the core is made of felt and the head is natural hemp yarn. We use a traditional way of wrapping with a manual tool made by our artisan Engin Büke. The final sewing is made by hand. The tension of wrapping gives the hardness. Again, the hollowness in the body makes the sound wider. The weight of one stick varies from 20 grams to 35 grams. The diameter varies from 0.9 cm to 1.3 cm. The length of the sticks is 42 cm. Every percussion and drum player needs a pair of mallets. Try these!

Hemp Drumsticks and Mallets invented by Özün Usta

When Özün Usta first hit the drums and cymbals with a thin hemp stalk and heard the unique sound, he decided to perfect the concept of pure hemp percussion sticks. The stalks come from Kastamonu province where the farmers have grown hemp at least since Ottoman times. Powerful yet smooth, light yet wide, full of surprises with a comfortable touch and feel. Our several models of Hemp Tempo percussion sticks usually do not crack when they are played on the drums. Just be careful on metal instruments and drum rims! If one end of your stick cracks and opens up, you can simply tape or tie the end with any material you like and go on playing with them. They will still produce their special sound. When they finally are finished they readily biodegrade.
