THE SILVERFOXâ„¢ DIFFERENCE

PREMIUM WOOD

Only premium logs are hand selected for SilverFox drumsticks. These logs are cut into squares and process dried for over two weeks to factory-specific moisture levels that virtually eliminate warping and cracking. The squares are then carefully shaped into high-quality straight dowels, perfect for turning into Silver Fox drumsticks. Our experienced craftsmen know that from straight dowels come straight sticks!

“HANDS-ON” PRODUCTION

Every high quality dowel is precision machined into a SilverFox drumstick on a custom built “back-knife” lathe. In a process requiring a high degree of hands-on production and skill, each stick is lathed, one-at-a-time, using three high-carbon steel knives. The result is unparalleled precision, flawless consistency, and a vastly superior drumstick.

ROTATIONAL SANDING

After machining, each stick undergoes a rotational 5-step sanding process. While our sanding procedures are more labor intensive than our competitors, we believe that taking extra care to prepare the stick for finishing is a crucial step in the SilverFox process.

UNCOMPROMISING QUALITY CONTROL

Each SilverFox drumstick is hand inspected, rolled and re-inspected at many different stages of the manufacturing process. Strict quality control ensures that each drumstick will have a consistent shape and perfect balance.

INDIVIDUALLY HAND-FINISHED

Most important to the player is the finish on the drumstick. And while other manufacturers finish their drumsticks in bulk tumblers using ordinary lacquer, SilverFox drumsticks are individually hand-finished using Duracrylx™, an exclusive formulation that is harder than lacquer and makes your SilverFox sticks LAST LONGER!

COMPUTERIZED STICK MATCHING

All SilverFox sticks are sorted to precise weight specifications. Then, a custom-designed pitch-pairing program records and analyzes the resonance of each stick, compares it to hundreds of others, and precisely pairs sticks with an identical sound profile. This ensures that each pair of SilverFox sticks will be a perfect match in both weight and pitch.

EXCLUSIVE TIP DESIGNS

Nylon Tips
Nylon tip sticks are preferred by many drummers because the hardness of the tip remains consistent over time. SilverFox nylon tipped sticks are not only durable, but they provide increased high frequency response, especially on cymbals. Many jazz players prefer nylon tipped sticks because of the enhanced stick definition on cymbals. SilverFox nylon-tipped sticks are manufactured with a two-step bonding process to high quality control standards.

Del-Tips
SilverFox offers an exclusive Delrin® tip on select marching models. Delrin is much denser and stronger than nylon, but does not add any additional weight to the tip of the drumstick. Del-Tips are more durable than nylon tips, and are completely weatherproof.

Ultra-Tips
The SFX marching series Delrin® Ultra-Tips feature a hammerhead shape, designed specifically for high-tension Kevlar heads.
