Bright Tangerine Drumstix Titanium Rods

Bright Tangerine – a company that is mostly known for its high-end matte boxes/follow-focuses/titan arm – just announced a new complementary accessory to their line-up: the Drumstix titanium support rods.

Also, titanium is extremely strong and corrosion resistant: the ideal material for filmmakers on the go.
