WTF are Hotrods?

Hotrods are like a cross between sticks and brushes. Bunches of wooden kebab skewers basically. They make a unique sound as the small sticks brush the drum heads, and make a splashy sound on cymbals.

A hotrod on a ride cymbal is a really lovely thing – percussive with a quick attack and yet ringing at the same time.

Dave Grohl is partly responsible for the popularity of hotrods. He used them on the classic MTV Nirvana Unplugged recordings. They helped him feel that he was playing with drumsticks, whilst keeping his playing volume down during the acoustic session.
