ProMark SMAX are the flattened, plastic version of brushes. Available in soft, medium and hard versions, SMAX offer a unique attack that punctuates on the drum set or hand drums alike. SMAX are particularly useful in multi-percussion setups where hand drums are combined with other instruments more commonly played with a stick. The wooden handle can also be used for rimshots and other sounds that are more characteristic of a drumstick.

The History of ProMark
The ProMark company was founded in 1957 by Herb Brochstein, a professional drummer and drum shop owner. ProMark has always been a family business and so continues with the 2011 purchase by D’Addario & Company from Herb’s son Maury. The offices and factory remain in Houston, Texas; manufacturing hickory, maple and Japanese Shira Kashi™ Oak (ProMark was the first American drumstick company to successfully market sustainable Japanese Oak) drumsticks in its modern 90,000 square foot facility.
ProMark uses only un-endangered wood in the manufacturing of its sticks and mallets. The harvesting of our hardwoods is carefully controlled, with replenishment of the forest as one of our top concerns. Prior to becoming drumsticks, the wood goes through a multitude of selection and pre-finishing processes at our own mill in the mid-south, followed by rigorous inspections throughout the manufacturing process.
