The Steve Smith Tala Wands were conceived when Steve began playing with drummers from India and needed a way to blend with their sounds and be sensitive to lower volume levels. The result: two unique and tremendous additions to the Vic Firth line of Rute and brushes. Tala Wands feel great and naturally help to play softer -- in all settings!

TW12 - Birch Tala Wand - A foam center is surrounded with birch dowels wrapped in thin PVC. Outstanding rebound and sound. While the shaft is thicker than the TW11, the weight of the birch dowels actually helps create a lighter touch and lower volume.

These are great for lower volume gigs. I've found that some other types of dowel sticks are good for getting a low volume, but the feel can be lacking. These Tala Wands have a better rebound and weight than some other comparable products. Doing double-stroke sticking patterns is easier to pull off and they have a nice natural response. I've used these with acoustic guitar players and in theater jobs and they have worked well in both situations.
