Pat Metheny Group sticksman and Adrian Young join Zildjian's Artist Series
Zildjian's Artist Series collection feature drumsticks designed by some of today's top drummers including Jason Bonham (Led Zeppelin), Taylor Hawkins (Foo Fighters) and Tre Cool (Green Day). Antonio Sanchez - long-time drummer with the Pat Metheny Group and some-time drummer with Chick Corea, Joshua Redman and Michael Brecker - can now be added to that list with his Diablo signature sticks.
This is a full sized U.S. Select Hickory drumstick, 16 1/2" long with a 0.550" diameter and combines a standard shaft with extra length, a heavier front-end and a barrel tip. It's finished with Antonio's Diablo signature in metallic red.
Another change to the Artist Series line-up comes from No Doubt sticksman Adrian Young, who has redesigned his existing sticks.
The improved black and white model (colours synonymous with the group), features Adrian's name in signature 'No Doubt' text in a silver checkerboard graphic, and a black nylon tip. This stick is 16 1/2" in length and 0.585" in diameter.
