So how does the Stick sound?

Surely you wonder how this much celebrated instrument sounds.

[39 sec. mp3]

[37 sec. mp3]

These samples are recordings of my first sessions with the Stick. Please don't laugh! These are only to document what a common man is capable of after using an instrument like this for a couple of days.

You also need to know that these snippets are not solo performances. They are recorded in two takes. And there are studio treatments as well; the sound is reinforced with a Line6 DL-4 Delay Modeler to give a little more swing and air to the sound.

For a better taste of the possibilities with this instrument, please see the clips at the official Stick web-site.

My personal favourite would be Youenn Landreau with his amazing performance.
