meaning "the mark of a professional" uses only premium,
hand-selected wood. Each stick is hand-finished and hand-inspected
for that classic Pro-Mark look, feel, and sound. Another feature
is "The Millenium II(tm) Process"; a proprietary system
unique in the drumstick industry. This treatment strengthens
the wood and improves resonance. It also reduces the chance
of warping during production, shipment and storage at retail
stores or distribution warehouses. Pro Mark also uses an environmentally
friendly finish as opposed to the ordinary lacquer used by most
other manufacturers. This finish is completely non-toxic, with
no waste or residue which is hazardous and difficult to dispose
of. AJ carries the regular line of Pro-Mark Drum Sticks
as well as Pro-Marks Brushes, Rods & Specialty sticks.
