PERFORMANCE SPOTLIGHT

FRANCESCO'S STICK OF CHOICE:

Jeff Queen Solo Stick (SJQ)
Full round tip for consistent sound quality regardless of the angle of approach. The long taper and reduced neck size produce excellent speed. A slight taper toward the rounded butt end improves back-sticking control and sound quality.
L = 17" | Dia. =.725" at butt | .675" at shaft.
