Hingestix HS5A

5A Training Aid Practicing Drumsticks

Product Code: 63116

We're sorry, this product is no longer available.

Designed as a learning tool by noted drummer, percussionist, clinician and author, Sam Ruttenberg, the versatile HingeStix®

HingeStix® simulates a loose grip, so they're PERFECT for playing the BERNARD PURDIE SHUFFLE!!

The HingeStix® have white plastic pads on the sides of the drum sticks. Place your thumb on the flat pad and your index finger on the bumpy pad. Hold the sticks with your thumb and index finger on the sides of the stick so that, when you strike the drum, the stick moves freely up and down and your thumb and index finger do not get in the way.

The HingeStix® come with three different positions so they can fit every drummer comfortably. The HingeStix® come with the pads set in the middle position. Moving the pads forward towards the point will make the sticks feel lighter at the point and create less of a whipping motion. Moving the pads back toward the butt end will make the point feel heavier and will create more of a whipping motion.

The side plastic pads have to be unscrewed and taken off if you want to move them to a different hole location. The flat plastic pad is for the thumb and the bumpy pad is for the index finger. If you move the pads, do this for both sticks so that you can apply equal strokes for both the left and right hand.
In Depth
  • Feel the rebound for smoother playing without fatigue.
  • Develop finger technique for faster playing without fatigue.
  • Understand the fulcrum (balance points) on the stick for more control.
  • Feel the whipping motion of the Moeller technique.
  • Making the transition from traditional to matched grip
