Benny’s stick is similar in diameter to a 5B, but features some unique adjustments that optimize feel and sound. A medium taper places the shoulder of this stick in an ideal spot for durability. To get a little more response than a medium taper typically offers, additional length is “borrowed” from the neck by moving the tip further up the stick. While increasing response usually requires changing the taper or length of a stick, Benny’s signature model does it all within a well-balanced 16 inches! The tip is a shortened tear drop shape – smaller than what you might normally find on a stick of this diameter – and provides a much more focused cymbal sound.
The Benny Greb Signature Stick is personal on every level, right down to the green ink – a calling card of this drumming mastermind. “What a rewarding experience it is when you search for something, think there might be a possible improvement, and then your expectations are met and even surpassed,” states Benny. “I feel at home and that everything is as it should be.”
