Description (Brief)

These sticks were made by Avedis Zildjian Company in Norwell, Massachusetts, in 1999. They are Marc Quiñones Salsa Artist Series Timbale Sticks, made of hickory, with the handle ends covered in red rubber.

As indicated in a Zildjian brochure of the period, “Marc's original DIP model, the 'Salsa' Timbale Stick is great for Latin and World percussion. Zildjian's exclusive DIP coating provides excellent grip for carefree playing. The smaller diameter and extra length allows for quick rhythms and gives the percussionist great reach in all percussion set-ups.”

Marc Quiñones is a percussionist, longtime player in salsa music. He has and performed with The Allman Brothers Band, the Greg Allman Band, Spyro Gyra, Marc Anthony, Doobie Brothers, and as a session musician.
