D’addario is launching new Promark sticks in the UK, with new heat sensitive grip technology and backed by acclaimed drummer from Wilco, Glenn Kotche.

The ActiveWave 570 features ActiveGrip – a heat-activated grip coating that gets tackier when a player’s hands heat up and start to sweat, and the new WaveHandle, a contoured handle that provides additional grip and a comfortable place for all fingers.

“To meet the demanding performances of Wilco and my other projects, I needed a special grip solution that I could trust, that didn’t feel like rubber or a synthetic,” Kotche said. “The new ActiveGrip feels like a regular hickory drumstick at the start of the show, and gets tackier when my hands start sweating. It’s an absolute breakthrough in grip. Plus, the WaveHandle design adds an additional contoured grip that also works as its own sound source. I’ve always dreamed of a drumstick like this, and I’m proud to share it with other drummers that demand the ultimate grip without sacrificing feel.”

The Active Wave 570 will be available from D’Addario UK from today (1st October).
