Many centuries ago, the drum stick appeared in mallet, wooden, and brush form. They were mostly used on percussion instruments during rituals. In the Middle Ages people would use them to add rhythm and music to live performances. The first ever noted drumstick appeared in Seventh-Century Asia. The features of the drumstick that we see today are very much the same design our ancestors used. They contain a bead (Tip), shaft, and butt (Bottom of the stick). Gradually, we have refined the finish and gauges of the wood or mallet and experimented with different beads to get a wide range of sounds. In this activity, drumsticks will be used to create music!
