This week at NAMM, introducing RT’s new performer Model, the Jason Sutter “Chop Stick”.  In Jason’s own words, “I'd like to think of the concept behind my new Regal Tip signature "Chop Sticks" as being that of an Educated Rock Drumstick.  The idea came from my experience from playing with a variety of different musical artists as well as my back ground in playing in orchestras and Big bands in college. The concept of the stick started with the tip design, which is a larger version of tips of the Regal Tip 8A and 9A sticks used by most of the top Studio or Session drummers in LA. The shaft is a combo of RT’s 5BX and 7B, creating a longer stick that has weight, but is so well-balanced,  it never feels heavy. The combination of tip, shaft, length and taper creates a stick that has the power for heavy gigs while offering the articulation and balance necessary for pop, fusion and more sensitive styles.  I used this stick on tour with Marilyn Manson for a year and a half and it is truly a Chop Stick! I can finally say I have found the ultimate tool for my trade!”   16.375” L x .590” D.

Jason will be at Regal Tip’s NAMM booth #3441  in Hall D on Friday, January 24 at 1 p.m., along with Brian Tichy and Glen Sobel.
