IT’S ALL ABOUT THE WOOD
Making a good pair of sticks begins by selecting the best wood possible. We manufacture many of our stick models in three wood types:
Canadian Maple and American White and Red Hickory.
Los Cabos’ maple is considered to be the best in the business, and all of it comes from right here in Canada!
Maple is a dense yet surprisingly light hardwood, well known for its tonal properties. It is best suited for drummers who want to use a large stick without the extra weight.
Los Cabos’ hickory comes from the southern USA. White hickory (sapwood) is known around the world as the top choice for drumstick manufacturing due to its durability and consistent coloring. White hickory drumsticks strike the perfect balance between durability and weight.
Red hickory (heartwood) is taken from an area closer to the center of the tree, where the wood is darker and denser. Drumsticks made of red hickory are more durable than their white hickory counterparts due to the increased strength and elasticity of heartwood vs sapwood. Los Cabos Drumsticks is the only established drumstick manufacturer in the world with a full line of red hickory drumsticks!
A FOCUS ON CRAFTSMANSHIP
Los Cabos Drumsticks are manufactured by some of the best woodworkers New Brunswick has to offer. All of our drumsticks are made in small batches, using a back lathe; and every stick is individually inspected by our quality control team to ensure only the best drumsticks leave our factory with the Los Cabos Drumsticks name on them!
