Stick Ball is a unique shaker product that attaches to a drum stick to add percussion options for the drummer. Winner of the Naam ‘best in show’ award, the product has been a solid addition to sales for the Rhythm Tech brand.
Nexus Design developed the product from concept through to injection molded parts. The major challenge is to ensure the device attaches to a range of drum stick diameters, which can vary by increments as small as 0.15”, and ensure the instrument does not come flying off in any vigorous use. The unique back wedge detail on the molded housing not only traps the tension back, but also creates a 'trap' condition so if the ball starts to slide it wedges the instrument to the stick. This unique design is patented and is an exclusive feature for Rhythm Tech products.
We found Nexus Design after an unsuccessful relationship with a well known design firm in NYC. They solved the problems we had on that project and have since enabled us to bring to market some of the most innovative products in our industry. They quickly grasped our brand image and helped us to build upon its core elements."
