Zildjian Introduces the Antonio Sanchez Artist Series Drumstick

The Avedis Zildjian Co. is proud to introduce the latest addition to its collection of artist-designed drumsticks. The Antonio Sanchez Artist Series Drumstick is 16 -inch long with a 0.550-inch diameter and is perfect for jazz, funk or fusion. A long-time Zildjian drumstick player, Antonio has been working on his personal stick with Zildjian for the past few years. Antonio's model combines a standard shaft with extra length and a heavier front-end which allows for heavier hitting when the music demands it. The stick features a barrel tip for excellent stick definition and full drum tones, and is finished with Antonio's "Diablo" signature in metallic red for extra brilliance. U.S. Select Hickory construction.

Antonio is only the second drummer in the past twenty-plus years to hold the drum chair for the Pat Metheny Group. Pat has also consistently called on Antonio to play in his popular trios, usually reserved for musicians outside of the Group. A graduate of Berklee College of Music, Antonio has also played with Chick Corea, Joshua Redman and Michael Brecker, among others.
