The Avedis Zildjian Co. introduced what it states are the fi rst-ever metallic-painted drumsticks on the market, the Zildjian Chroma Series drumsticks. This new series builds on the success of Zildjian’s color-dipped stick options and responds to the drummer’s need for sticks that are reliable and command attention. The new Zildjian Chroma Series drumsticks are finished with a pearlescent paint that interacts with light sources for a one-of-a-kind dazzling look. The sticks will be launching with four metallic finishes: Chroma Blue, Chroma Pink, Chroma Silver and Chroma Gold. The Chroma Series is available
in Zildjian’s recently redesigned 5A profile, is 16 inches in length and .560 inches in diameter, and is an American hickory stick with an oval, wood tip.
