|About Regal Tip
The founder of Regal Tip, Joe Calato, forever changed the appearance of drumsticks. Calato was the first to introduce a drumstick with a nylon tip that lasted longer and produced better sound quality. Calato's genius in producing new and improved percussion instruments was recognized by the Percussive Arts Society who inducted Calato in the Hall of Fame in 2001. Today, Regal Tip continues to improve the appearance and usage of drumsticks. In 2003, Regal Tip introduced the "E-Series" nylon tip drumstick. This drumstick offers a darker, warmer sound on a cymbal. Regal Tip manufactures its own products and has numerous patents secured. In the past 50 years, Regal has become a popular name that musicians worldwide have learned to trust.
