The Tom Aungst model is made of hickory, has a long, "reverse tear-drop" tip and moderately long taper. It rebounds with ease and a bold sound. The Indoor version is a reduced version and modified to create great sounds for indoor snare.
The Corpsmaster Lee Beddis Signature Marching Snare Stick features a medium tear drop tip and short taper for clarity and projection. "The bead shape coupled with the neck taper really helps create a 'beefy' sound," explains Lee, Percussion Caption Head and Arranger for The Crossmen Drum & Bugle Corps.
