Using only first-quality American Hickory, each pair is sorted and matched to the highest tolerances in the industry, resulting in unparalleled consistency and durability. Snare sticks are offered in a variety of profiles and undergo a 21-day progressive kiln-drying process to ensure each stick remains perfectly straight. Tenor sticks feature a medium taper hickory shaft to hit the sweet spot between durability and response.

Toca Sympatico SystemTOCA
New Sympatico System
Toca Percussion is pleased to announce an evolution to its line of Nesting Drums. The new Sympatico System of tunable, interchangeable drums and heads will change how lightweight drums are perceived. By design, lightweight drums must be portable, durable and, easy to carry and transport. Unfortunately, the most common way to achieve this desired outcome is to eliminate bulky and heavy tuning mechanisms. In their place is a pre-tuned head. 

The Sympatico System solves the issue with its innovative and proprietary internal tuning design. It’s significantly lighter than traditional tuning systems, easy to use, and there’s no extra bulky, heavy, hardware attached to the side of the drum to get in your way. It’s hidden inside! And the heads are designed to simply integrate with Toca’s existing line of Freestyle II Nesting Drums including Djembes, Tom-Toms, Djun-Djuns, and Ashikos. If you already have one of these instruments, pop on a new Sympatico tunable head and bring your playing and your sound to a whole new level.

Toca is also introducing two new Freestyle II Nesting Drum series that will come standard with the Sympatico tunable head: a set of Gathering Drums and our exclusive Tubadoras, which sound like traditional congas. The sound, by virtue of the ability to tune, uniquely your own, at much less than half the weight of traditional hand percussion drums.
