No one can tell it better than customers can
quiet drum sticks are outstanding! I have been using the product for 2
years almost exclusively. They have replaced my regular drum sticks for
almost all situations. My bandmates appreciate the volume difference. My
wife definitely appreciates the volume difference. I can practice
without earplugs and the tone while slightly different is still good
drum tone. As far as translating to regular sticks I find that there is
minimal adjustment and if anything I play even better with regular
sticks after using the quiet sticks. Recordingwise there is minimal
impact on quality and no one can tell that I am not using regular
sticks. Even more important the bass drum beater definitely makes using a
real drum set at home more manageable. The 2.0 version appears sturdier
and even better tone. Anyway, I am a very happy customer and
wholeheartedly recommend the product!

"Lazaro and I have
been working closely to design a model that is true to Lidwish
Soulutions concept of a practice stick, but can also crossover into live
performance, as I have found at playing percussion along side of
legendary drummer Mick Fleetwood during a recent gig here on Maui. The
tone they bring out of the timbales and cowbells is great! They also
holdup under the extremes of such a gig. Way to go Lazaro!"

I'm using the Ultra
Tone 2.0's and 2 Ultra Tone Kick Beaters for some Rock & Roll. The
kick drum has a nice mid punch without going overboard on the volume
while the 2.0 sticks give a fuller sound than the Classics, and again
the Toms, Cymbals & Snare Drum volumes all stay in check. Nice Job

""We're TOO LOUD. The client
isn't at all happy about the volume level of the band and tensions are
running high. Then I reach into my stick bag and pull out these
amazing sticks. It's like grabbing a secret weapon from my super-hero
utility belt. The client is floored by the difference, smiles
approvingly, and gives us the O.K. sign. On more than one occasion
they have SAVED THE DAY!"

My son has been using these for
the last couple of years and they have let him play as often as he
likes without annoying everyone else in the family. They have had no
ill effects on his playing, as he happily transitions to wooden sticks
when he plays in larger venues. It would be great to see other
families and young drummers benefiting from this system.

"Aloha. I received my Ultra Tones
today and just wanted to say WOW. You said I would like them, and I had
high expectations which were totally exceeded. I've been drumming for 4
decades now but my rig has been collecting dust in my condo for almost
10 years. Drum and cymbal mutes were tried, but just didn't cut the
mustard sound and feel-wise. These sticks are everything I was hoping
for. I can't tell you how special this is to me to be able to get back
on the throne whenever the mood strikes me. Thanks for a killer

I just took delivery of my Lidwish
products and I am very impressed. 30 minutes of playing along to my
beloved Iron Maiden knowing I was not assaulting the neighborhood was
very liberating indeed. Well done guys - I only wish that i had
discovered them years ago, every drummer should have these in the
stick-bag. "Up the Irons"!! "Up Lidwish"!!!
Deborah - Albuquerque, New Mexico said:
My ultra tones came in today. I
am very impressed. I normally use Vic Firth 7AN. I have a set of
Flix light (blue), flix heavy (orange) both with tips. I also have the
tala wands (bamboo and birch). My favorite of the bundle sticks is the
tala wands. The Flix give the drums an unnatural sound. Flix has no
rebound at all and just feel like a wet noodle. The Tala wands sound
good but break very easily. When broken the foam center flies around
I used the Ultra-tones today side by
side the 7AN & both Flix's. WOW!!!!!!!! The Ultra-tones sound
amazing. The toms have the same tone as they do with the 7AN without
the volume. They have great rebound so your technique doesn't suffer
if you need quieter rehearsals BUY
LIDWISH ULTRA-TONE Version 2.0 sticks. I will be using these for
acoustic sets where the drum volume needs to be low.
"I got the ultra tones
today. All I can say is (expletive delete) fantastic! Up until now I
have been drumming with the rubber pads on the drums. Much nicer now as I
can hear the actual drum sound, and the ultra tones are "bouncier".
Very quiet too! Nice.
I would also like to add that I can
now play the drums, and my cats DO NOT get scared and run like bloody
hell into another room. Their ears may perk up when I hit a cymbal with
the shaft, but they stay sleeping in the same room. How's THAT for
Brendan - Winnipeg, Canada
you for creating the Ultra-Tones system. Wooden sticks are just too loud
for the room where I’ve got my drums set up – namely the living room of
my house. I’d say on the snare, the Ultra-Tone sticks are at least half
the volume of wooden sticks. I live in a single family home and am able
to play my music a couple clicks louder than if I had neighbors above
or below me, but I do not need to raise the stereo volume any higher in
order to practice drumming along with the music when using the
Ultra-Tones sticks and bass drum kick beater. A great product!"
Fred – a drumming beginner in Massachusetts
are amazing, for the first time I can practice at full swing on my
Pacific acoustic kit without upsetting anyone! The weight, feel and
bounce is identical to regular sticks. I have tried all kinds of
dampeners which work but the feel is terrible and it's a pain to setup.
Multi-rods is what I usually use but is not very responsive. Now for
practice I just grab the Ultra-Tones and go for it with no remorse. As
an amateur, this will enable me to become a better drummer as I now have
no excuse to not practice. Great invention and awesome product I wish
you the best. "
Richard - Honolulu, Hawaii
Hey Lazaro, I got the
Ultra Tones and they are better than I imagined they would be. They are
more quiet than they seem on the demo videos. I've been playing with
brushes to keep the noise level down. So now its great to be able to
practice my sticking at about the same level as my brushes and the
weight and feel is very close to regular sticks. Thanks for the great
product . You've made my drum practice more fun.

"Finally the Ultimate Drum Stick! Ultra Tones are
the Ultimate Drum Stick Perfect for Practice & Excellent for Gigs.
Great feel, great balance, less stress on the hands and no wood shavings
on the floor. Great Value at a very reasonable price! For the cost of a
couple of pairs of wood drum sticks you can buy a pair of Ultra Tone
Sticks that will outlast dozens of wood drum sticks. Excellent Customer
Support! Where else can you speak to the designer of the stick &
owner of the company? The Ultra Tones System has help me extended my
practice sessions and improved my playing. I recommend the Ultra Tones
sticks & bass beater to my drum students. Hey Drummers do yourself a
favor and treat yourself to a great pair of sticks & a sweet bass
beater. You deserve the best!"

"I've used almost every sound
dampening system that is currently available. I have tried the rubber
disks -- but you lose the feel of the drums and what ever volume is left
is useless if you are playing with other people or a recording. I do
use hot rods but they have a different feel entirely. Simply put, the
ultra tones system gives me the feel I am looking for at a lower volume
so I don't have to worry about disturbing neighbors etc. In terms of
volume reduction, it is substantial -- I can have a normal conversation
with someone while playing. It is an outstanding product! "

"Very impressed, just not happy that I didn't think of myself... congrats on your invention, well done!"

"It sounds and feels like real
drums. My ULTRA TONES make it easy to play when volume is a issue. they
are not only limited to that scenario, they are great for warm up and
practice as well as recording . A must item for every stick bag."
John Ferraro Professional Drummer - www.johnferraro.net
say that I enjoyed using the product. The balance of the sticks works
well for me. The adjustable length of the tips comes in handy and is a
good idea. I was especially pleased with the response and tone on
cymbals and hi-hats. I have used brushes, blast rods (both bamboo and
plastic) and other similar type sticks. None of them allowed the tone
and definition on cymbals. Using the body of the stick on a cymbal
provided the accent needed for crashes, something not easy with other
type of "quiet sticks."

"After years of playing, and
then not playing sometimes months to years, always because of the
complaints of neighbors, roommates, and using all, and I mean all of the
low volume play devices, I was so completely dissatisfied, I set out to
create something that would completely satisfy me and, in particular,
satisfy those around me. I have created a system that would give me a
complete all around play throughout my entire drum kit. After close to a
year of research and development, I completely satisfied myself and
those around me. The complete self-gratification system for drummers is

"They actually work
pretty well, I'd say the noise reduction to inside the house (thru one
wall to the garage) is at least 50 percent, maybe more. Definitely
worth it! Thanks."
Eva Musa - Sacramento, CA
- Volume is reduced significantly and the tone from the toms is better than when I use Pro Mark Power Rods, so I like that.
- Still able to do some double stroke rolls on the snare. Nice
- Bass drum volume is reduced. Tone is changed, but not in an unpleasant way
- Rimshots are still very possible and playable
- Sticks have a very good feel
- Bass drums still has a pretty good feel, even with largest pad
Jay Turner - Dallas, TX
"I used the sticks
Saturday for the first time. I like the sound much more than my Hot
Rod sticks, especially on my cymbals. I haven't needed the bass drum
dampeners as I have feet with very soft touch...All in all, and after
only one use, I am very satisfied and want to thank you for all your
hard work making and marketing these sticks. I too think that every
drummer should have a pair of these sticks in his or her bag."
Richard Lipowitz - Grass Valley, CA
"The young people
finally had another praise service on Saturday afternoon. I brought out
the drumsticks/kick beater for them. Others in the group requested that
they use the Ultra-Tones rather than the wooden sticks whenever they
would switch to the wooden sticks. It was much more pleasing when the
sounds of the acoustic guitars, electric guitars, piano, and trap set
where blended than when the drums overpowered the oSther instruments in
the previous praise session. Take care, Sir! It has been a pleasure
doing business with you."
