Promark has announced the release of the limited edition Promark Oak 747 Neil Peart Wood Tip R40 Anniversary Tour drumsticks. From the Promark website:

The 747 was designed by Neil Peart of Rush. It features a classic 5A diameter but is longer and features a thicker taper. The large oval bead provides a dark, warm tone. The 747 is the perfect stick when more volume is required. Commemorative stick artwork for Rush 40th Anniversary Tour
