NAMM 2020: John Bonham signature drumsticks debuting at Winter NAMM
Exact spec of Bonzo's original '70s "trees" promised

In 1964, a then little-known company in Yorkshire, England began producing drumsticks.

The Professional Music Company, latterly known as Promuco, initially struggled to break the lucrative US market, until a certain Buddy Rich adopted their sticks.

John Bonham was one of the many drummers who then took up Promuco sticks, and quickly had his own specification commissioned.

Original Bonham Promuco sticks are still highly sought after, and now you'll be able to get your hands on faithful reproductions of what Bonzo allegedly referred to as his "trees".

Initially available from February in the UK thanks to Barnes & Mullins, and then globally through 2020, the sticks will officially debut at NAMM 2020 on 16 January. They're premium hickory sticks made to that exact original specification, down to the legendary Ďacorní tip and feature Bonzo's signature logo.

Seems kind of common to me, unless I'm missing something.

I think the Vic Firth American Classics go 595, and 16". Vater also has the Fatbacks and Extended Play at 590, 16" as well.

well every company has their own grain and the neck and tip on this one should be semi unique; unless one is familiar...with Promuco UK sticks ; )... Another said the Promark Joe Morello were/are similar dimension; hmm. Wonder if John knew that ? betcha..
