Aside from the Rohema Concert Piano and Mezzo, the Concert Forte is the stick with the lowest dead weight and the largest rounded tip diameter (11.5 millimeters). This large head shape not only allows effortless playing in almost all technical challenges (e.g. long, loose swirl play), but also a rich sound in all desired stickings. Its weight and balance characteristics are perfectly matched to wider motions. As a result, the Forte provides reliable musical handling and very good control.
The Concert Forte is made of Red Hornwood - a specially crafted beech plywood from Germany. This wood offers extremely high continuity in both density and rebound characteristics. Therefore, it eliminates the need to use tropical woods. It is completed with an oil-wax finish that is applied in a two-step process. With this finish, the stick has a very good grip and feel.
With the three models Concert Piano, Mezzo and Forte, Rohema has further developed the proven General Stick. The three variations of different weights and head shapes expand the range of applications for the entire Rohema Concert series.
