Q: What do you call someone who hangs out with musicians? A: A drummer. Yes, we know that's not particularly funny but it
illustrates the gulf between tub thumpers and the rest of the musical community.
Of course some of the criticism levelled at skinbashers is perfectly justified. Remember, we are talking about people who bash
things with sticks. And for every Keith Moon there's always a Luke (Bros) Goss or Whatsername Corr to add impetus to the drummers
are dimbos lobby. Indeed, some drummers are so inept they make the Duracell Bunny look like Buddy Rich! That's why we thought we'd
whack some much needed credibility into the world of crashes, splashes, toms and flamadiddles with Rock Beat Drumsticks.
These ingenious electronic sticks represent a huge advance in the field of pretending to play the drums, as you don't need an
accompanying drum kit to start knocking out a few funky beats. That's because Rock Beat Drumsticks feature nifty built-in speakers
that blast out a variety of drum sounds every time the rubber tips hit a surface or strike the air with anything more than a tap.
Nifty buttons change the sound from snare drum to tom-tom to crash cymbal, and you can also make a right Ringo out of yourself
bashing along to a tune. Better still, bright LEDs
within the Rock Beat's durable tips mean you can flail around in the dark. Any more sophisticated and you could join Pink Floyd on
stage for an impromptu jam (although you'd probably be bundled off and sectioned in the Rod, Jane and Freddie home for the
musically insane before you played your first comedy count-in).
Rock Beat Drumsticks are musical must-haves for anyone who's ever pretended to drum along to their favourite ditty, even if it's
only the intro to EastEnders. So why not make like a real drummer right now by clicking, no, bashing the 'Add to Cart' button and
indulging in some hi-tech crash, bang, wallop!
