VIII.  Submit your vision!
First, we apologize for such a long read!  With so many options and details presented we feel it's important to have some
background regarding our process.  While we appreciate with current market trends, the opportunity for players to have both a
truly premium drumstick with the addition of custom personalization has been both limited if not simply impossible with some
manufacturers.  Observing these trends, we have chosen to offer a new program for custom stick availability previously limited
only to our endorsers.  Traditionally, custom orders and details discussed were via email, text or direct call.  With this new
approach, we have striven to maintain a personal touch by offering a uniquely comprehensive overview of the custom process.
Your next step is to fill out your personal order request.  Please be as accurate as possible regarding chosen options along with contact information and custom design specifics to complete your custom order request.  We sincerely look forward to hearing
from you.  Prost!
