Back in 1964, the Professional Music Company started making drumsticks in Yorkshire, England. After a couple of years of limited success, a certain Buddy Rich caught on to the sticks and helped introduce them to the American market. Subsequently, Promuco sticks came to the attention of a growing number of influential drummers, and it was during the early 70s that John Bonham had his own sticks commissioned by the British manufacturer. The rest, as they say, is history.
Original Promuco John Bonham sticks are still in great demand with even single sticks selling for thousands of dollars. An original pair of John Bonham Promuco sticks are proudly displayed in the Hard Rock Café in Biloxi, Mississippi.
