The Crossovers II Poly Bead combine the concept of bundled rods with that of a regular maple drum stick. After lathing the unique shaped shaft of the Crossover II, HeadHunters drills a centre hole down to a bulb area then insert and secure polypropylene strands, they integrate small nylon balls onto 2 of the poly strands. These nylon balls are adjustable in position and allow for optimum drum and cymbal voicing. Because the short poly length also enhances the response performance of the Crossovers II design. They finish the stick with their user friendly ‘Grip Control’ which features a double textured ‘X’ pattern feel.
The major features present in all of the Crossovers are as follows; they respond and play very fast, the bulb area is a solid bead. It can be played on the bell of a cymbal like a regular drumstick, this stick design can also be used to execute rim shots and cross sticking with the sound expectations of a regular drumstick. Because rods are combined with a solid stick shaft design, a drummer will notice the dynamic range possible with this stick is very useful if and when the intensity and volume of the music increases during a tune.
