    I am totally impressed with CooperGroove sticks! The comfort level and feel is incredible! Besides the obvious advantages; no slip. no sweating…..I have found they help with aches and pains and allow me to play so much longer without hand fatigue! The grip is also effortless so the pressure used for stick control is greatly reduced! I am now a very satisfied customer and would recommend these sticks to all drummers I know! As for customer relations…you won’t find a better representative than Carlo! We, the consumer,are his main priority and he stands behind his product with a money- back guarantee! This is a win win product for every drummer to try! Thankyou Carlo!!! David Washburn,Ontario,Canada!

    Great sticks from a great guy! Coming back to drumming after years off, these sticks have made life much easier for me. The grooves feel unusual for a minute but then your grip relaxes and finds a natural “home” position. The result is less effort to grip allowing much less fatigue. That and you have a drumstick company that k ows you by name! Cant say enough!

    I read a lot about these sticks last year and decided to treat myself for Christmas. I ordered 6 pairs from Carlo in late December and received my order to Ireland in early January. Carlo was very helpful with organising delivery as I knew it was one of the first times he had posted international. I gave away one pair as a present and have been playing Coopergrooves almost exclusively since, I have numerous students that like to “forget” their own sticks when coming to lessons so that they can use my Coopergrooves.

    I love the weight and balance. They originally felt quite light compared to my previous sticks but they are incredibly strong. I play several times a week and have had a few heavy hitters try them also. In almost 6 months I have broken only 2 sticks! This for any brand is exceptional value for money. Customer service is top notch and to have that personal touch from Carlo is incredibly refreshing. If you have any reservations about trying Coopergrooves (which you shouldn’t) Carlo offered a money back guarantee. You won’t find that anywhere else.
    Try them – you will not regret it!!!

    I got a pair of 7As the first time from Carlos as I use a Vic Firth HD4 cause I like a thinner stick. But What I found out is with a smaller stick I was forcing myself to grip the stick having fatigue right away. As time went on and the more I practiced I was able to relax my hands with the fulcrum of the sticks without them slipping out of my hands. I absolutely love the way these stick feel in my hands with the grooves as opposed a smooth stick. I am now moving on to the 5As as I feel that should be my stick of choice. I can’t wait to get them. Great product from a great guy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    The best sticks I’ve ever used period.I use to have pain in my hands especially between my thumb and index finger from gripping regular sticks too tight especially after playing up tempo made playing and practice uncomfortable and almost to the point of not wanting to play.but since switching to Coopergrooves as my go to sticks ,the pain is gone.I play more relaxed and comfortable and have picked up some speed and better control since using Coopergrooves. Try them buy them love them.

    These stick’s have changed my life. I can’t wait to get home after work and play my Cooper Groove’s. The feel of the stick is incredible. The grip I use with these is so much more relaxed, I never have to worry how I am holding them because they just stay put. The relaxed grip has allowed me to play faster and longer than ever before. If you don’t mind your hands hurting and having your sticks fly away during that rocking solo everyone is watching then these aren’t for you. But if those things bother you then try these sticks. After feeling the benefits of these incredible American hickory sticks I ordered some for my son. I want him to be able to play as long as he can. Thank you Carlo, your Cooper Grooves are the best thing to happen to my drumming ever. BUY THESE STICKS!!! BUY THESE STICKS!!! BUY THESES STICKS!!! I AM SERIOUS BUY THEM….

    When I first tried these sticks I was skeptical but once I played with them it was a game changer. Now I won’t be using any other sticks they really do everything said. They help with grip and decrease sweat in the hands and stimulate pressure points. I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for relief from tendinitis and arthritis in the fingers and hands. It also increase speed in playing and the stamina also is increased. The price is definitely worth it trust me I’ve been playing for 11 years and never had I held such a beautiful pair of sticks.

    Just ordered my second pair of coopergroove sticks. When I purchased my first pair of sticks I was sceptical but thought I would try them out. I have really bad carpal tunnel in my right hand and will lose feeling from numbness after just a few minutes of playing. I was dropping sticks regularly. I started using gripped sticks then I even had to go as far as wearing gloves while using gripped sticks.

    After trying the first pair out they felt great. Not only was I able to hang on to them but no longer have to wear gloves. My hands don’t hurt and go numb as much anymore either. These sticks are great and I can’t tell you how great. You really just have to give them a try and feel the difference.

  10. Rated 5 out of 5

    These sticks are incredible! I almost never drop them. The grooves allow for air to flow between your hand and the stick, which decreases sweating. Along with the grooves decreasing my sweating, these sticks are also very durable. It took me nearly four months to break a stick! These sticks are definately worth the money! I can’t recommend them enough.

    These sticks have changed everything for me! No more fatigue or soreness for these old hands! It CooperGroove or nothing! Thanks Carlo for the inspiration to carry on!

    These sticks have and will continue to revolutionize the industry. It allows people to continue their passion of playing the drums, solving a whole slew of problems. Hand, wrist and forearm pain is virtually eliminated, and the grip is drastically better than other sticks, in dry or sweaty conditions. Very durable too. Made by someone who listens to drummers, incorporating all input into the making of these beautiful sticks. Customer service is never a problem either… full money back guarantee if you don’t like. Nothing to lose!!! Definitely worth the money. Try em!

    Hi, my name is Frank DeRocco. I’ve been playing drums for 30 yrs. Over the past few years I have suffered from some injuries to my Neck, Left shoulder, arm and hand and last year I had a major back operation. One day I came across CooperGroove Sticks and decided to give them a try. I talked with Carlo and he even gave me a discount code. No Stick Company has Ever been So Personal and Gracious like that. After receiving my sticks, I played Long and Hard to Really test these Sticks out to See if in Fact they Lived up to the Hype because Once Again, Carlo offers a Money Back guarantee and you get to keep the Sticks. (Nobody Else does That!) After playing with these Amazing Sticks, I became a Fan Immediately. They are light, the grooves alow air flow to keep your hands dry. They also give a player like me , who sometimes holds the stick at the bottom a place to grip the stick better. They live up too Everything that Carlo Promises. They are a Great Product by a Great Guy to Help us Drummers. Thank you Carlo Cooper!

    Been a drummer for 38 years I considered dropping drumsticks a frustrating and potentially embarrassing thing that drummers have to deal with but after using CooperGroove drumsticks for 8 months I no longer fear dropping sticks while playing the sticks feel comfortable and I always feel confident in my grip no matter how hot and sweaty I am up on stage or at home getting some practice time in simply put CooperGroove drumsticks are a gamechanger for me Thanks Carlo for making a tool no drummer should be without

    These sticks made my playing much better! My hands used to get sweaty and my sticks would fly right out. With Cooper Groove drumsticks, my hands don’t get sweaty, and my sticks stay in my hands! I also like how they don’t chip as easy. I could see a great difference using these sticks compared with my Vic Firth ones. It wont be hard making a decision for sticks anymore. Im sticking with Cooper Grooves! Thanks Carlo Cooper for inventing these awesome sticks! I will never go back to my old sticks again!

    These CooperGroovers drum sticks are awesome, when I first use them, I played with them for hours, great for Punk Rock, and Hardcore. I’ve been used every set of drumstick for many years, including Vic Firth for 5 years, and these CooperGroovers sticks did the job. Looks like I’ll be using these more often.

    Hopelessly in love with my CooperGrooves! They are the only sticks I will buy from now on! High quality, attention to detail, solves many performance issues from fatigue, grip and sweat just to name a few! You don’t have to be a rock star to benefit from these sticks! Get in to the Groove, you won’t be let down!

    I’ll be brutally honest here. I ordered money from ebay. Right out the gate, Carlo communicated with me. Made sure my order was correct, kept me updated throughout the process all the way up to the ship date. My sticks arrived and the first thing I notices was the diameter. I ordered 5Bs but these were slightly thicker. I compared em to my current stick and sure enough they were slightly thicker and heavier. It took a bit for me to adjust but after playing with them for about a week……MAN! I was a bit skeptical at first that these sticks were capable of doing all they claim to but I’m a believer. I live in Southern California, it’s been 95, 100 degrees the last two weeks, and while playing, my hands stay dry. I play metal/post hardcore and am a heavy hitter and these sticks take a beating. I’m pretty sure they even chip and flake less than my previous sticks. And most of all the grooves help keep my hand placement and actually decrease had cramping when playing faster music. I would say I’m a customer for life, but seeing as I have 4 pairs and their durability is outstanding, I’m not sure I’ll ever need to buy another pair. Thank you Carlo and I am excited to see what else you got up your sleeve.

    I bought my first pair of 5B’s from Carlo last month and have played 5-6 shows with the same pair. We play nearly 50 songs a night so my sticks usually take a beating ( rimshot-crash had to be done) and the Cooper Groove’s are still going strong. Only after the last show, I am seeing a little wear on the shaft and one of the tips. They are very durable and comfortable. I will continue to support Cooper Groove as my stick of choice. I highly recommend. I would have normally burned through a pair of Vic’s per show. At a minimum. Great customer service. Friendly and really cares that his customers feel supported

    What can i say? Carlo’s idea works in every single aspect. I have a damaged left ellbow and no day, no pain. Since using the Cooper Groovers it feels better while playin with the Band and afterwards less or at least no pain issues.
    For me this is a reason to switch to these wonderful drumsticks.

    A friend of mine turned me on to these sticks at the end of 2015. I got my first pair in January 2016 (I got 2 actually). It took less than 2 gigs for me to get used to them. After that, I was sold! The sticks feel great in my hands and they are so comfortable. Due to the grooves, my hands don’t sweat, the sticks don’t slip, and you have a fantastic tactile feel with just you and the wood. I have always had a loose grip on my sticks, but would drop the other sticks that I used (the same model since ~1990). With my CooperGroove drumsticks, I still have that loose grip, but I don’t drop them hardly at all! The sticks are also very solid (been using the same pair for ~4 months with hardly a scratch) and extremely well balanced. I am thrilled to have been turned on to these sticks and have found a fantastic versatile stick that I can use for rock, pop, country, and jazz! Not only are the sticks great, but Carlo provides fantastic customer support and you couldn’t ask to work with a nicer guy. He really cares about his customers and wants everybody to be satisfied. Like I said, “I am sold”! Check ’em out!!

    I was a Vic Firth guy since day one. Got my first Gen 1 7As and fell in love from there. These sticks have been more then what I estimated and have not looked back at any other sticks since. Great product from a great guy!

    These sticks are amazing. They last twice as long as the sticks I used to use. I’ve noticed a difference in the way I hold the stick after switching to CooperGrooves. My grip is looser and I have also noticed that I don’t drop them when I play. I really like the way they feel.

    I’ve been playing drums since I was 11 years old and professionally since I was 14. I’ve played all the major and many new guys on the block sticks in my career and have found nothing better than my new CooperGroove sticks by Carlo Cooper. With other sticks, by the end of a show I was either icing my hands down or running them under cold water to help with the tension and stress, even at an early age. Now with carpal tunnel syndrome, and after corrective surgery, with my new CooperGroive sticks, I have felt zero discomfort in hands or wrists. Just amazing such a simple idea, when implemented correctly, has such a beneficial impact on a drummer’s well being. Besides that, they are also a very high longevity drumstick made from the best hickory you can find right here in the US of A !!! Try them once and you can’t tolerate playing with anything BUT the grooviest sticks around, CooperGroove Performance Drumsticks. If you, by some stretch of the imagination, DON’T like them, you can get a full refund (minus shipping/handling charge of course) and, YOU KEEP THE STICKS !!!! Try getting a refund on any other brand and see what happens. Bottom line, best innovation I’ve seen in my career and the only stick I’ll play now. CooperGroove drumsticks, in my opinion, truly are the new industry standard drumstick to measure all others by.

    CooperGrooves are great! I tried the product on a whim, and finally found “my” stick of choice. I have played many brands over the years, and I can honestly say the CooperGroove 2Bs are perfect for me. The length, and weight are spot on. No more worries of having a stick slip out of my hand on a cold outdoor show while doing a tom roll.

    The CooperGrooves feel great, and play great. My hands do not have an “after effect” of playing a long set/show. AND, they have a ‘natural’ finish which I have always loved. – Now back all of this up with a 100% satisfaction guarantee from the man himself, Carlo Cooper, and you cannot go wrong. HIGHLY recommend these sticks.

    I have been a Cooper Groove artist for 6 months now.
    I’ve never broken a stick.
    The feel, response, and balance are everything I need for the type of playing I do.
    Plus after years of drumming, golf, cylcling, and other sports my arms and wrists have taken a beating. Using these drumsticks is like therapy!

    Plus I can get my Cooper Gooves like I get my Italian Beefs, “Dipped!”
    Thanks Carlo

    I am a patent attorney by training and have been playing drums as a hobby since the mid 1980’s. Two of the problems that I always face are 1) impact and 2) slippage of sticks. I bought a couple pairs of CooperGroove sticks a few months ago as I saw my buddy using them. I asked if the the “grooves” actually made a difference. He suggested I try for myself. I did.
    Basically, the two aforementioned problems were greatly alleviated. In regards to impact, my hands and forearms felt much more relaxed after two hour plus practice sessions than they do after using other stick brands. I also noticed a improvement in grip with less slippage and hand sweat as well.
    I not only appreciate the technical improvements of these sticks over others that I have used, but also highly suggest that everyone try them for themselves.

    Absolutely the best sticks I’ve ever used.
    I could talk all day about these sticks but I have drums to bang later so I’ll keep it short.

    Not only do they last 3-5X longer than my old sticks but the added grip with the grooves makes my playing so much better. The grooves allow me to loossen up my grip which allows me to play better, longer, faster and with more accuracy. Having the grooves lets me know exactly where my hand is on the stick.
    I don’t drop as many sticks as I used to, and even when I’m sweating my ass off the grooves give me the grip I need.

    Amazing customer service.
    Genius product.
    Well worth the extra money.

    Thank you so much Carlo, you’re doing the drumming world a huge favor one rimshot at a time 🙂

    ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE, Are the only words I can think of to describe Coopergroove drumsticks. However words still can’t do it justice, you just need to get a pair for yourself and see all the benefits us coopergroovers are ranting and raving about! Let’s go through the checklist of what makes a stick phenomenal.

    Durablility- I myself, play 5-6 shows a week, yet I’m still on the same pair of sticks I received 3 months ago. The only time I’ve changed sticks is to move to my signature stick 2 weeks ago ( which by the way, still haven’t even dented a stick. ) I am an extremely heavy hitter, and honestly I’ve never seen any wood stick like this that withholds this much damage without breaking, it’s quite unbelievable. So durability gets a big check mark ✔️

    Feel/Grip- This is another thing that just sets coopergrooves so far ahead of any other stick on the market. Being a heavy hitter as I recently mentioned, every night at the conclusion of playing I would have extreme cramping and pain in my hands. Pretty crazy for a 22 year old right? Ever since I made the switched to the grooves, I haven’t even had the slightest twitch of pain. 20 cross cut grooves, Are a genius invention that add for such incredible play. Increasing grip ( I’ve been able to loosen up my grip a lot and relax ), Decreases palm sweat from “white knuckling” the stick, Grooves and hand grip also add for such an increase in control and power. I’m playing faster than ever! And, the grooves really make these things easy to hold on too! I haven’t drop a stick yet ( knock on wood ) and that’s a huge plus. Over feel gets a huge Check ✔️

    Overall look: These is the easiest one. These things look sweet! I mean your eyes can tell a lot, and when you see such a new revolutionary stick like this, it really brings appeal. Carlo can also add black and red stick bottom half stick dips to add some awesome appeal! I myself have both and they look sweat!

    If all of these great things haven’t sold you yet, Then the family aspect will. Carlo is a genuine guy, who cares about each and every drummer he comes in contact with. It’s crucial to him that you get you’re dream stick, and us drummers know that’s all we want! Not to mention, the constant deals, sharing of videos from us groovers online, And check ups, This is a family you want to be a part of! Plus, no one around has better one liners then Carlo Cooper! *Rim Shot, Crash!*

    Happy and honored to be an artist for the coopergroove family!

    I bought these drumsticks because so many drummers on chat pages were raving about them.the grooves are great for all the stated reasons,but I didn’t feel like I had a problem with grip,or pain.I probably won’t use another stick again,even without the grooves they are well balanced, and extremely durable. The best part is how the grooves stimulate the fingers,it creates a sensitivity, and feel that makes drumming even more enjoyable. Carlo cooper is great at working with drummers to get the stick they want.I have bought plain grooved,double grooved and dipped.I now only want to play double grooved,and dipped.I have never been so excited about drumsticks. They are pricey,but totally worth it. I am all in on cooper grooves……incredible!

    I apologize that I haven’t left a comment earlier, when I received my first pair, I was amazed on how they felt, by that I mean, the grip, less tension, no cramping in the forearms, no losing the sticks in speed rolls. Just a well designed stick with great reaction to any kit, any cymbal I have played on. I have several pairs and have been letting other drummers try them, they love them as much as I do, like today did some drum tracks for an up coming band and the studio guy is an old drummer let him play around with them, his reaction was dude hook me up with a pair. Gave him all the info. Again thanks bro.

    I have been playing the CG 5B and 5A ( depending on the gig) for a month or two now. Last night at rehearsal i was messing around and was being silly with some stick twirls ala 1980’s for an upcoming ” hairband” themed benefit show. I generally only keep a single pair of sticks out for rehearsal so no real backups to readily grab. Low and behold the stick somehow flew out of my hand while i was doing a Randy Castillo flip. Stick went flying out in front of me. My singer goes and hands me a random old stick that was there. within SECONDS I instantly felt fatigue, dare i say it ” pain”, and what i like to call ” gig sore” afterwards. CooperGroove sticks ARE NOT all hype. They GENUINELY do what they say, help where they can, etc. it is for THIS reason, and the fact that Carlo Cooper is a cool mofo, that i will ONLY play Cooper Groove sticks for as long as they are being manufactured which i hope is long after I’m gone from this earth. Keep in mind, i was an endorsed artist of another company when i first tried Cooper Grooves. After the first song, i abruptly called and terminated my contract with the that brand..

    I am truly blown away by the quality of these drum sticks. I’ve been drumming for 29 years and this is by far the best stick I’ve ever used. I suffer from mild arthritis in my hands and I’ve noticed a huge difference in the two months that I have been playing CooperGroove drumsticks. I’m so glad that I made the switch to CooperGroove. #TeamCooperGroove till the end.

    These sticks are very impressive. Not just due to their quality of construction ,balance strength and appearance.they played a Hugh role in my recovery after a recent horrible wrist fracture requiring surgery! Thr increase in grip strength decrease of slippage and increase of blood flow hastened my recovery for sure. The dipped sticks respond excellently with and without gloves. Have had to start wearing them but of the above mentioned recovery time. The response of the oval Tipton the cymbals and drums are amazing. These will definitely continue to be my first choice of go sticks!!!! A big shout and thanks to Carlo Cooper founder and mastermind!!!!

    I’ve had my grooves since May of this year… let me tell you, these things are incredible! I’ve suffered for years with carpal issues and scapholunate dissociation, causing tingling and numbness in my fingers and left thumb. To the point where I’ve had to hold sticks between my 1st and 2nd fingers while playing so i don’t lose my stick with every snare hit. The way my hands feel when playing with cooper grooves is an enormous improvement! Not only have they reduced my pain, but they give me a sense confidence in that i don’t have to CONSTANTLY be thinking about my hands! I play longer, cleaner, and tighter thanks to these sticks! And the life you get from one pair is phenomenal! Carlo Cooper, a sincere thank you for helping us all! You are a visionary, a great businessman, and a greater friend! I know we ALL genuinely appreciate your approach, and personal involvement with every pair you put out! Cooper Groover for life!

    I’ve been using CooperGroove sticks for about 6 months and I will never switch back to regular sticks again. If you suffer from hand fatigue and cramps while you’re playing these sticks are the answer. I’ve noticed that I can play a lot longer without any pain. Not mention the sticks hold up incredibly well. Carlo is a great guy to work with and super supportive.

    Carlo i really have to hand it to you bro, in my 8 weeks now of playing with your sticks the absolutes are,
    my son bonham has been using the 5a’s on his electric kit, he has zero wear, he sweats alot and the groove pattern completely stopped stick issues, no more “band aids” in any direction and said once he breaks the rest of his vaters on the acoustic kit order up some 3a’s, in my aged out dci ham hands i have tried to break the light marching model, all they do is dent, zero beavering and im gocking the living hillary out of a floater, im convinced this might be the best possible multi tenor stick ever, its a shame too many people are so in bed with false promises from major manufactures,
    your sticks are far superior, if big box retail didnt kill my shop
    when 3 gs and sam opened here turning my dealer agreements
    into toilet paper i would definitively be a fully stocking cooper shop,
    your doing everything right man, mad love to ya brother \m/

    After reading various praising reviews about these re-invented drumsticks, I got curious, especially as I was suffering from a tennis elbow during that period.

    I ordered the 5B sticks at in the Netherlands. They offered good and friendly service when I had any questions. They share the same kind of enthusiasm about the product as I have seen by the CooperGrooves’ main man, Carlo Cooper. A big thanks to them as the sticks were quickly delivered.

    When they arrived, first things first, what are they like? No drum kit in the vicinity, so time for some air-drumming. First reaction: “Feels strange!” Never did drumsticks feel like this, the grooves make it special. But this is air-drumming…. I need a real drum kit!

    During band practice, with my band Deem Index, I finally had the change to properly test these beauties. After just halve a minute the “strange” feeling was gone. The grip they provide is unparalleled. The CooperGrooves feel good and the sticks stay in place, no “walking around” in my hands. I have little to no time to warm up, practice time is short and most of the time it’s GO! right from the moment my drumkit is set up. This time it was no different GO! Right from the start, normally I feel it in my hands, playing to tense, resulting in loosing grip or holding the sticks the wrong way.

    But with the CooperGroove sticks, the grooves made such an impact on my grip, I was able to play more relaxed and with more control.

    And well, I’m a metal drummer, so I’m a heavy hitter, but the CooperGrooves are keeping up and doing great.
    Drumsticks with a great feel and durability, I have found what I was looking for.

    I can’t be certain what is better…. CooperGroove sticks or Carlo Cooper the designer and owner of the company.
    First, lets talk about the sticks. They have been the only sticks in my hands for close to a year now. The wood used is an extremely durable American Hickory that holds up to heavy use. I don’t know where he gets his wood, but it along with his CrossCut groove design minimize vibration from playing. And the gooves… They are amazing! I was good for dropping at least 1-2 sticks a gig. That has dwindled to so infrequent, I can’t even count. My hands and wrists experience less fatigue because I don’t need to over grip these sticks. This has resulted in more speed and consistent playing.
    Carlo and every drummer that has played these sticks stands behind them. The only negative comments I have ever seen about these sticks are the price… and these folks haven’t tried them. I promise you have nothing to loose. Carlos guarantees you will love his sticks or he will refund your money. Why does he do that? Because he designed, creates, ships these sticks… personally. I know.. I see the social media posts of the signed notes he includes with his shipments.
    You have to try theses. They will change the way you drum!

    All about the Groove! These sticks make drumming seem almost effortless. With having such a relaxed grip sometimes I would find other products sliding out of my hands. The grooves give a secure and comfortable feeling while playing. Very well balanced and gives you great flow and movement around the kit. These sticks are gonna be great for long shows and studio sessions. Great product. Great company!

    Got my red dipped 5AW’s last week and I really punished a pair to see how durable they are and to see if they would chip or crack and after 3 days of 8 hours a day they show very little signs of play. So they passed in that department. Then I also felt out the balance of the stick and really paid attention to it with my down stroke and the bounce that came afterwards and I was very happy with the results of that too. I get a consistent stroke and bounce on every backbeat that has a great fill to it. The red dipped grip was a much better grip for me than the normal wood grip. The wood grip is great but I love the added grip feel from the dipped. The only draw back from the dip was when cross sticking it left a bunch of red marks on my head but that is to be expected from any dipped stick. So that only leaves me with shipping and customer service. Shipping somehow got messed up on my order but Carlo jumped right on it and sent me a pair for free while I waited on my order to be done and shipped to me. I didn’t have to ask for it either, he was quick to offer all the help he could to make sure I was happy and he threw an extra pair with my order. I don’t believe many companies would do that for a first time customer or for any customer at all. I got 4 pairs of sticks for the price of 2 and that was a great deal!!! So if you haven’t tried these great sticks out then do yourself a favor and go for it! You’ll love them and you’ll be treated like family when you do… We are becoming a big family because of this product and that is worth way more than money my friends!!! Great Job Carlo, I’m looking forward to many many years of working with you my friend!!

    I find that the more and more that I use these sticks, the more and more I fall in love with them! I use to think that Vic-FIrths were the stick for me, but I quickly learned that Vic-Firth only WORKS for me, but CooperGrooves act as a true extension of my arms, and allow me to play to my full potential! I wanted a few months to write a review, so I would have the chance to try out a few pairs. The crazy thing is that I have only played with a few pairs, these sticks are so durable!! One pair lasted me over 48 hours of playing between gigs, Im not a light hitter either! Take some actual time to sit and play with the sticks. They do take some time to get used to at first (as does any new piece of gear), but they will soon feel like they were made for your hands specifically!
    Just as amazing as the stick is the connection that Carlo makes with each and every buyer, he truly makes you feel like you’re family! I’ve never been so comfortable with switching the brand of gear that I use, because i’m SUPER picky about that! All in all, stop thinking and JUST DO IT! If you aren’t a fan, Carlo will give you 100% money back and you get to keep the sticks! Theres nothing that could go wrong!
    Forever love my CooperGrooves

    Revolutionary grip and ease of playing ESPECIALLY for those with gripping issues such as peripheral neuropathy!! I am truly honored to be among their first endorsed artists. Played proudly on national tv and stage shows and touring band and have NEVER failed me.

    I cannot say enough about these sticks. I love playing the drums but am no good at it, however I love drummers it’s my favorite element in music. I gave a pair to three friends, one a professional drummer, in 2 different states, and they have absolutely raved about everything, its unbelievable for a product to be this great they act like they are trying to sell them to me!! Absolutely ecstatic about these things I’ve never seen anything like it. I keep getting such gratitude for the gift of introducing them to Cooper Grooves, they let their family and friends use them tell me how awesome they are, requests for more sticks, amazing grip, the music store owner wants to carry them, my dad wants a pair, I can play longer, no sore hands, how can I get an endorsement, etc etc. Game changer is an understatement, these let drummers with tendinitis and carpal play again, and the young kids can prevent those drum playing damages to their body. Plus there is nobody better than Carlo, inventor, entrepreneur, all around honest, solid, good-hearted person and a super cool guy to boot. This is a revolution in drumsticks.

    I wont lie. I was skeptical right from the start. I mean, I could buy some nice Ahead sticks for the price. Having been a loyal Ahead stick man for the past 10 years, I have noticed that while I gained speed, I lost control and started to suffer really bad joint pain in my wrists and shoulders. After some debate and reading reviews, I decided to try a pair of the Cooper Grooves. I am so glad I did. The response is amazing, the comfort is unmatched. The level of feedback these sticks give is almost unheard of. I have never held a stick that was as comfortable and so perfectly balanced! I’m not just blowing smoke, I’m going to stop using and maybe sell my Ahead 7A’s and invest exclusively in Cooper Grooves. You get what you pay for, so pay for the best sticks money can buy!

    The very first time I played a pair of CooperGroove sticks, I felt the difference. I knew right then an there that I had found “My” sticks! The ability to play with a much more relaxed grip, instantly provided relief of wrist strain and fatigue. The Grooves act like frets as I change me sticking, allowing me to always know exactly where my hands are on the sticks and thus a greater level of confidence is achieved! An added bonus is, the grooves allow sweat to run off of the stick. No more gloves, no more powders or other crazy ideas trying to keep ahold of the sticks! The sticks themselves, are perfectly balanced and made from the finest American Hickory for unmatched durability and provide excellent feedback! I immediately ordered my first brick!
    But it’s not just the sticks that are great, but also the people behind them. CooperGroove founder Carlo Cooper is a drummer striving to make life better for all drummers! His attention to detail goes right down to literally every pair of sticks that goes out and his personal commitment goes with each and every pair of those sticks and extends to every single drummer that buys even one pair of sticks. Something you will not find with any other drumstick company!
    Incredible sticks that improved my playing and relieved pain and fatigue… Great people standing behind those sticks… I was sold! Not only was I going to use these sticks exclusively, but I had to be a part of the CooperGroove Community! it doesn’t matter if I’m home or on tour, I proudly talk about these sticks with every drummer I meet and encourage them to try them! (Often giving my fellow drummers a pair to try out during their sound checks or ever shows.) And I tell them all, These are the last Sticks I’ll ever use! Thanks again Carlo!!

    Best sticks I have ever played with. I have carpal tunnel in both hands as well as past injury. Every show was pain filled, and the day after pain lingered. Since moving to Cooper Groove I am more in control of finesse figures, and suffer no pain during or after a show. No more gloves, no more dropped sticks, none of that. You owe it to yourself and your drumming future to try these innovative sticks! Money back guarantee if you don’t like them, and you get to keep them. I am never going back to traditional sticks.

    These sticks made all the difference in my playing and hand pain. I use to have to grip extra hard to hold on to my sticks. It caused a great deal of hand and finger pain. Now I can play for hours with no pain. Also they have increased my speed and control as well. I never thought when I got these, that they would make all the difference in my playing. But they Have.
    So glad I tried them.

    CooperGroove drumsticks are everything they claim to be and more. I’ve always had problems with hand cramping, pain, and losing my grip. These sticks changed all that and I could feel the difference instantly. They allow a more relaxed grip, my hand cramps and pain have gone away (and come back again when I use other stick brands), and you are always aware of where your fingers are on the stick. In addition to the feel, they are well balanced and strong as heck. You can beat the crap out of these sticks and all they do is dent.

    As for Mr. Carlo Cooper, you couldn’t ask for a better person to deal with. He is genuine in his passion for his product, and for helping drummers. I have never had any issues regarding shipping, and Carlo adds the personal touch of sending a sticker, and a personalized thank you note to each and every customer. You can’t say that about most companies. The last pair of sticks I received were even signed by him!
    You can’t go wrong with CooperGrooves. Plain and simple. Worth every cent.

    I was in a bad car wreck in 96, eventually was diagnosed with Fybro in 98. I couldn’t hold onto my sticks anymore as I kept dropping them. I quit playing for a long time, so frustrating and painful. Tried many different types of sticks, even drumming gloves. 🙁 CooperGrooves is what was needed to get me back on the Throne! I’m back to what I truly love and all because Carlo had a dream to improve the lives of the percussion community! Thank You Carlo for what you have made possible for me. Chicks with Sticks! Love Ya

    Carlo and CooperGroove sticks are fantastic to work with! While the grooves provide additional grip and reduce fatigue to the hands, there are more benefits to the sticks than just those attributes…

    I have never really had any hand issues, but the quality of the sticks is what really stood out to me…they have outlasted my other sticks I have used for years! The types of Hickory used really holds up well to heavy playing, with the gradual taper of the sticks that allows balance along with the slightly added weight, allowed me to play with more control and speed than before (2 nice things for drummers to have!).

    Another factor that changed my playing for the better was the increased tip size of the sticks. In a recent recording session, I noticed my cymbals were brighter and more clear (using 5A Ball Tip), than from using other brands. The drum tones and attack constancy also benefited greatly from the stick tips, weight and taper! Overall a win-win, on the stage or studio!!

    Perhaps the only thing that can top the sticks themselves is the customer service that Carlo provides! Promptly answered my inquiries about the sticks and sizes. This is the kind of quality craftsmanship and service that keeps me coming back for more…They are definatly worth trying a pair!!

    Dino here, Drummer for Barbwire n Roses here in the Dallas area,I have played many sticks in my 57 yrs of playing and until I was turned on to them by fellow drummer and friend James Marler I never knew that it is possible to not drop sticks and the aching in my hands is no more.The balance is unbelievable only wish they made a nylon tip version. In short these are the best sticks on the market and Carlos is a super nice guy. So if you don’t have several pair you need to order..Well worth the money.

    Well, where do I begin. The fact that I have had absolutely no pain in my hands or fingers and
    Can play for longer periods of time without my hands or fingers going numb. The grip on these sticks have enabled me to loosen my grip and relax my hands, which has improved my hand and finger control. My playing has improved. These sticks have changed my abilities in such a positive way, I can’t say enough. Everything I was told they would do, they did and more. Would I ever go back to playing traditional slip sticks…NO! I have not been compensated in anyway, and I say all this in my own personal opinion. Coopergrooves deliver!

    I have never had serious pains in my hands that I can remember, however fatigue has been an on-and-off issue if I’m playing more than a 45 minute set.

    I sat for over an hour and played my Cooper Groove 5B’s the other night after I got them and had no issues with my hands feeling like I’d played that long. The grip rubber almost feels tacky after awhile, and that, mixed with the grooves cut into the sticks means you don’t have to grip nearly as hard. The coolest part about them is they stimulate your nerve endings in your fingers and hands. My hands tingled as if I’d been clapping for a long period of time, which felt amazing, rather than feeling like I had been gripping a stick for that long.

    Well done, Carlo. I like them a lot.

    I love these sticks and won’t use anything else! I have 3 pair now. I had bilateral carpal tunnel with surgery done on the right 15 years ago, but never did have the left side done. I used to drop a stick here and there from losing my grip. I used to have swelling and pain and had to ice down after playing but not anymore because of Coopergroove! It’s amazing how effortless it is to play with these sticks. The grip is so comfortable. I’m able to play longer, better, and with way more power than i ever did before. A really wonderful feature to these sticks is that some kind of magic makes it so my hands don’t sweat! I used to have to wear wrist bands to avoid dropping a slippery stick. I’ve used other dipped sticks, anti-slip grip sticks that would just leave me with blisters. It certainly doesn’t hurt that they are really cool looking to boot!

    I first got the opportunity to try the sticks out when I went to NAMM in Nashville, Tennessee last Summer. The very moment that I started playing on the sticks was already a night and day comparison with the drumsticks that I had already brought with me. My grip feels much more comfortable, especially with the way that the handle is designed. When it comes to playing music, I play a lot of single stroke rolls for long periods of time. Playing with these sticks, I don’t feel like a fatigue or cramp nearly as fast as I do with any other stick I’ve used in my tenure of playing. Since I got to try these out in Nashville, I’ve been stockpiling on them ever since. I recommend this to any drummer out there, especially the guys that play lots of blast beats in the extreme metal scene. Great sticks, great feel, great durability; just an all around great product from a great guy! I’m hooked for life!

    Excellent Drumstix. You’ve made a product for Drummer’s needs…because you, yourself, are a Drummer!! You KNOW the problem with “dropping stix” and hand fatigue, etc! And you’ve virtually solved those problems.
    We’ve discussed the one concern l’ve talked to you about, and you were professional in your response. I appreciated that, Carlos, you’re a “Pro”, my Friend! [And, l will give the stix a fair amount of time, as well as my grip an allotted time and “learning curve”, having used only one type of stick for decades. Some things just need a bit of time, my Friend!]

    Let me tell you something about the Grooves. I first stumbled on to them from a Facebook ad in a group. I knew nothing of Carlo Cooper or his drumsticks, but I was experiencing some symptoms listed, and decided to give them a shot. There was really no downside to buying, because he offered a money back guarantee. What did I have to lose. This was 2 years and 6 pairs ago (I still have 2 pairs that I haven’t touched yet) I have not bought another brand since. Not only do they live up to what literally EVERYONE says, but the main reason I continue to buy the Grooves, is because the service. The service is by far THE BEST customer service I have ever received from…. anyone really. Multi-Million dollar companies that have departments for this stuff don’t offer service like this. Carlo Cooper has forever changed the game for drummers. But don’t take my word for it, you have to experience it for yourself. What do you have to lose?

    Carlo sent me a pair of original Gen1 sticks free for being a veteran when they first came out. Can’t beat free so I gave them a try. As soon as I started playing, I knew these were the sticks I have been looking for. They did everything he said they would and more. I ordered 2 more sets of the Gen2 and never looked back. Carlo even called me to chat about how I liked them and just to talk drummer to drummer. You won’t find another company owner that will do that. The price may be a little higher than most, but they do everything he says they will and they outlast any stick I have ever played. What has impressed me the most is his dedication to his customers. 100% money back guarantee. With Carlo, you not only get the best sticks on the market today, you also get a friend in the industry that truly cares about making your drumming experience the best it can be…

    About 35 years ago I lost my left forefinger in an accident. I had been playing for about 10 years so this prompted me to do 3 things. 1. I had to change from a traditional grip to a matched grip. 2. I earned the nickname “Frodo” :o) and 3. I began a quest to find a product or device to help with my grip-especially for my left hand.

    For the last 35 years I have tried various gloves, wraps, tape, wax and anything else I could find or make to enhance my grip without rubbing blisters or impeding my dexterity.

    About 2 months ago a Facebook friend turned me on to CooperGroove’s Groove Grip drum sticks. I ordered 3 pair and skeptically awaited their arrival. Well, it was certainly worth the wait and I am skeptical no longer.

    Aside from the enhanced grip that the grooves provide, they also seem to stimulate the pressure points on my hands and fingers which reduces / eliminates hand and finger fatigue. The grooves also work to dissipate the perspiration so my hands stay drier – allowing for a more relaxed grip; this also reduces fatigue and helps prevent blisters. I not only notice a HUGE difference during gigs but also the day after with little or no stiffness and soreness in my hands.

    I am forever grateful to Carlo Cooper for his genius design and for taking a personal interest in every pair of sticks he sells and every customer he sells to. These sticks are what I have been looking for for 35 years since my accident and I am a total believer in CooperGroove Groove Grip sticks. I will never buy or use anything else. THANK YOU Carlo Cooper and CooperGroove!

    I was skeptical, I’ve used the same brand and style of sticks for years and years, I was then turned on to CG sticks through a fellow drum brother ….I ordered and received my sticks extremely fast. They felt really good but it wasn’t until I went out and played a show, a full on set, going full throttle. It wasn’t till then I realized the full magnitude of these sticks ..No fatigue, so comfortable, zero slipping or flying sticks, great, just great ..well done Carlo ….I’ll be using these from here on out ….Thank You CooperGroove !

    After having surgery on my elbow, I was unable to play the we are used to. My hand would cramp and go numb. I received a pair of Cooper Groove sticks for Christmas. And was hugely surprised!! Not only was I able to play longer with less pain and cramping. The sticks were also very durable. It’s like Carlo make them some out of unicorn horns. A lot of people may complain about the price. I have to say it is well worth the money. Cooper Groove has a long time customer with me. Don’t trust me? Try them out, you have nothing nothing to lose with a 100 % money back guarantee. you can’t lose!

    Hi there, When my friend James Marler told me about the Cooper Groove sticks I was skeptical because of price, but had been looking for something that could help with the fatigue and numbness I would get while playing. So I hit the website and read up on them and ordered a pair, has to be one of best decisions I’ve made in awhile. I had no numbness at all for the whole night it was shocking !
    I highly recommend you get several pair(not that you’ll need more than one) I have 3 pair — 2 of the 20 groove and one of the 40 groove.
    They just don’t seem to wear out .Best product to hit the market in awhile!!
    Thanks Carlo !! Dino Gist – Barbwire n Roses – Forney,Texas

    Our drummer, Mad T, has been using CooperGroove drumsticks exclusively now for sometime…they never seem to fail.

    The sticks are dirable for the long haul and simply badass in performance and to look at.

    Thanks for the endorsement.

    I am in love with CooperGroove sticks, I play in a community band and all of the other percussionist wants to borrow them. My playing has improved tremendously. I can roll longer with these sticks than I can with conventional sticks. Thank you Carlo.

    I am a true believer in CooperGroove drum sticks. I always had problems dropping sticks or gripping the stick too close to the end, creating extra work and forearm cramping. These sticks have completely eliminated those issues. I grip the stick correctly now, they are not slipping all over and I’m drumming in a more relaxed state. My band mates are also safer as there are not projectile drumsticks randomly flying at them. I’m not sure if they are making these out of some hybrid wood, but these sticks last what seems to be 3-4 times longer than any other brand I’ve used. Check them out, you won’t regret it!

    Coopergroove Drumsticks!! Highly recommended to all drummers especially hard hitters one! Truly amazed at how the groove could do wonders to your finger, will not get numb or sore after playing for several hours. Highly anticipated if Carlo is looking into using “birch”, “Japanese white oak” or “carbon fiber” the various type of wood and non-wood material to incorporate the “groove” technology. It would be truly awesome and spectacular to our drum innovation. Thumbs Up to Carlo!! Keep up with your Coopergroove inspirational dream!

    Cooper Groove drum sticks are THE REAL DEAL!

    I really put my Cooper Groove 5B’s to the test before choosing to endorse them.
    Comfort – “check!”
    Feel – “check!”
    ZERO fatigue after hours of playing – “check!”
    American company: “check!”
    Very cool guy running the company: “check!”

    I’ve been keeping score….between practice, rehearsal, lessons, and performances, the score is:
    HOURS PLAYED > 800

    I absolutely recommend Cooper Groove sticks – my students who have tried them love them, and you will, too. Whatever style I play – from jazz, to the wide range of styles we cover with Diablo Trucking Company (, to banging out punk
    classics with Another State of Mind (, I’ve found that Cooper Groove sticks improve my feel, let me relax behind the kit, and just enjoy playing. Seriously – you’ve GOT to give these sticks a try….you’ll thank me!

    For me, Cooper Grooves have totally eliminated all arm pump, and hand cramping, which was causing major fatigue, and tons of dropped sticks. Before switching to Cooper Grooves back in late 2015 drumming was turning into a chore, and wasnt really very much fun. They have eliminated all my pain, and put all the enjoyment back into playing drums. Secondly, their durability are second to none. For years I played Vic Firth 5BN’s. They were constantly breaking. Sometimes after only half an hour. I can honestly say, I’d go thru 3-5 pairs of VF’s for every 1 pair of Cooper Grooves if not sometimes more. Last but not least, the customer service has no equal. Carlo is absolutely one of nicest, most genuine guys Ive ever had the pleasure of meeting. He genuinely cares about each and every person that buys his product, and strives to make sure they are happy with their sticks, and their overall experience with Cooper Groove in general. All are treated like a human, not just a number, and that goes a long way in my book.

    I must say, as a drummer that sweats a lot which then causes me to lose grip of most name brand drum sticks, with CooperGrove, it’s a different story. Mr. Carlo Cooper, owner and genius behind this invention, really solved a problem in the drummer world. First hand, I experienced the authenticity of each claim made in the description below each pairs of drum sticks on this website. This company has created a pair of sticks way beyond it’s time…if that makes sense lol
