Thumbs up

T Dave hit the nail on the head. I know lots of singers that have fully beaded drumsticks but they are usually used as leaning sticks and not for actual drumming. The problem it that the beads get broke by the stick making contact with the edge or head of the drum. Those broken beads cut the string thus causing your 'unwrapping' problem. Also if you didn't use a leather backing under the beads then this will cause them to break even quicker, but either way they will break. I would suggest that in the future if you make more of these and expect the singer to be able to actually drum with it then only run the beadwork several inches up from the handle and not all the way to the top. It was a nice thought, but sorry this one won't pan out.
