The Beloved Whipcrack Sound, Made Simpler

The slapstick's whipcrack sound is adored by fans of all ages. Even the sternest conductors can't help but crack a smile during classics like Leroy Anderson's "Sleigh Ride" and Aaron Copland's "Buckaroo Holiday" from Rodeo. The Timber Drum Company slapstick is elegantly built from solid Tennessee hickory for a look and tone that's worthy of any orchestra. What we like about this slapstick is its one-handed operation, the benefits of which are twofold. First, the Timber Drum Company slapstick is easier to operate for all players, especially percussionists who have to cover multiple parts. Second, its reduced output is voiced more like a traditional percussion instrument for easier integration into your ensemble.

Easier to play than traditional slapsticks

Yesterday's slapsticks were comprised of two large planks of lumber and required both hands — more accurately, the player's entire body — to operate. These were crude, heavy, and slow. But the Timber Drum Company slapstick is an elegant instrument for a more civilized age. Its reduced length (18") and hinged design allow it to be played with one hand, and with a natural striking motion that percussionists will adapt to quickly.

Great for controlled environments

The traditional slapstick is anything but subtle. Just watch the poor tuba section shrink with trepidation every time the slapstick player winds up. If you're looking for a more controlled instrument, Sweetwater recommends the Timber Drum Company slapstick. Its reduced volume is a better fit for small ensembles and recording applications.
