This is a great little tool for every drummer to have in their stick bag. This giggle stick can be use in many styles of music. Recently I was playing some Motown and I have to keep the beat in the hi- hat and at the same time the band was asking for a tambourine sound. This was the perfect solution for that kind of sound. What I like about Meinl HJS1BK Jingle Stick Black is those is not too heavy, but not too light either. Feels a good balance in your hands, also is very durable and not heavy in the drums heads if you have to do a roll. The sound is very good. Try it on!
