Hallo liebes Thomann Team,
gerne möchte ich eurer Bitte nachkommen und eine Beurteilung der bei euch gekauften Drummsticks PROMARK FBH550TW 5A abgeben.
Hierbei handelt es sich um meine persönliche und subjektive Spiegelung meines Empfindens.

Vor dem Kauf?

Die Sticks von PROMARK waren zu beginn eines schmalen Ganges in eine Art Gitterbox auf Kopfhöhe angebracht. Hierbei war von jeder Sortierung jeweils ein Paar ausgepackt und zum testen davor gestellt. Einen Schritt weiter befand sich ein Gummi-Pad auf welchem man die gewählten Sticks anwenden konnte.
Nachdem ich mich fleißig durch die aufgereihten Teststicks durch gearbeitet habe, entschied ich mich für die bereits erwähnten FBH550TW (Select Balance, American Hickory).
Mir gefielen die Leichtigkeit und der sehr gute Rebound den ich auf dem Gummi hatte.

Nach dem Kauf?

Jetzt hatte ich Gelegenheit meine Neuerwerbung an meinem akustischen Drumset (Toms einlagig, Snare zweilagig mit Evans bespannt) zu spielen. Zunächst spielte ich immer nur kurze Sequenzen von etwa 10 Minuten an verschiedenen Tagen. Danach machte ich einige längere Einheiten von ca. 60-90 Minuten.
Der Stick selbst ist angenehm Leicht, hat einen guten Sound und einen guten Rebound.
Doch diese Kombination birgt auch die Eigenschaft mit sich, dass die Vibrationen vom Auftreffen auf Becken und Felle auf die Gelenke weiter gegeben werden. Hierbei zeigte sich dass ich nach jeder Nutzung mit schmerzenden Fingern zu tun hatte.
Was mir bereits nach kurzer Spielphase auffiel war die ungleiche Gewichtung, die beim einfachen in der Hand wägen nicht so präsent war. Auf der Küchenwaage kontrolliert wog einer 50 Gramm und der andere 44 Gramm.
Der Stick selbst ist als kopflastig beschrieben und das ist er auch.
Dennoch habe ich erwartet dass die Kopflastigkeit beim Standartgriff seinen Balancepunkt hat. Dies ist nicht der Fall.
Um eine gute Tarierung zu bekommen musste ich den Stick ganz weit am Ende anfassen um ihn halbwegs angenehm spielen zu können.
Die Oberfläche liefert mir für eine so weit nach hinten verlagerte Handhabung zu wenig Gripp und ist mir auch sonst etwas glatt.

Fazit:

Die Sticks von Promark FBH550TW sind sehr leicht mit gutem Klang und Rebound.
In der Spielpraxis sind es recht flinke Sticks, doch liegt mir der Balancepunkt zu weit hinten und die Weiterleitung der Vibrationen ist mir viel zu stark.
Die Oberfläche ist mir ein wenig zu glatt.
Unterm Strich habe ich die Sticks lieber aus meinen Händen gelegt, als sie in diese zu nehmen.
Jedoch könnte ich mir vorstellen das eine ideale Nutzung eher im E-Drum Bereich liegen kann.
Ich selbst werde die Sticks innerhalb der Familie weitergeben. Mal gespannt wie dort die Rückmeldung aussieht.

Abschlußbemerkung:

Wie sich ein Stick in der eigentlichen Nutzung bewährt vermag man auf einem Gummi-Probepad nicht 100% ein zu schätzen. Jedoch steigen die Chancen sollte man ein Pad erwischen welches ein richtiges Fell besitzt. Habe dies in einem Koblenzer Store entdeckt und war sofort von dem Spielgefühl angetan (sehr authentisch). Ich würde mich freuen, wenn dies auch für Thomann eine fruchtbare Anregung ist.
Optimal ist natürlich immer es am Drumset direkt zu probieren.

Ich hoffe Ihr konntet die eine oder andere Anmerkung für euch verwenden und wünsche
viel Erfolg bei eurer eigenen Stick suche.

Keep on drumming

Ralf

Ayant lu dans un magazine de batterie que ces nouvelles baguettes répondaient à une technologie de pointe concernant leur équilibrage, j'ai souhaité tester. Sauf que les deux baguettes ne font pas le même poids. Ce qui n'est pas très high tech et très désagréable au jeu !
