Description Technical Specs The Inside Story...

These old hickory sticks rattle up spirits of the lamentable slave trade!

Don't know if Andrew Jackson played bones or not. But "Old Hickory" was an early proponent of the banjar and he was known to dance to the fiddling of slaves. So it is not hard to imagine the rattlin' of the bones wafting through the slave quarters of his Hermitage estate.

Jackson was nicknamed Old Hickory because he was renowned for his toughness. And hickory bones are indeed hard and tough. So the next time you need to deliver a medium-sharp tone that cuts through the din, just bring along a pair of these Danforth hickory sticks.
