Promark's Millenium II process is a proprietary system which is unique to the drumstick industry. This treatment actually strengthens the wood and improves the resonance. It reduces the chance of warping during production, shipment and storages at retail stores or distribution warehouses. Promark is now using 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. It makes Promark sticks less sensitive to moisture changes than standard drumsticks. The result is signifanctly improved quality and consistency as well as a finish that is more comfortable to the touch.
