Master the proper drumstick grip and learn how to hold your drumsticks to maximize your technique.
HINGESTIX swivel pads let the drumstick float, simulating a loose, correct grip. Using HINGESTIX will improve your rebound by reinforcing the position of the fulcrum. HINGESTIX also improves and reinforces the use of the Moeller Technique. Excellent for matched grip drummers, which makes the transition to other percussion instruments easy. Take years off your drum lessons, improve your hand technique, and make drumming with your regular drumsticks easier, with HINGESTIX.

Frequently Asked Questions From Fellow Drummers
How do I achieve a loose grip while holding my drumsticks?
The patented swivel pads automatically positions your thumb and index finger at the fulcrum for a correct grip.
How do I keep my back fingers on the drumstick while I’m playing?
HINGESTIX necessitates the use of the back fingers to control the stick, because of their free floating action.
How do I know that I’m holding the drumstick correctly?
HINGESTIX specially contoured swivel pads pivot at the fulcrum and forces the correct grip and builds muscle memory for proper grip on your regular drumsticks.
How do I feel the rebound of the drumsticks when I'm playing my drums?
A free rebound can only be achieved when you’re holding the drumstick loosely. HINGESTIX lets you feel a free unencumbered rebound because the hinged swivel pads rotate freely. When you hold the stick, you’re actually simulating a loose grip so that when you go back to your regular drumsticks you’ll realize how a free rebound should feel.
