An incredibly rare set of custom-made drum sticks used by the great John Bonham.

Provenance: From the collection of Jeff Ocheltree

Ocheltree obtained the sticks during a 1975 “Presence” studio session

The sticks were used circa 1975 at the height of Led Zeppelin’s fame. The prime hickory drum sticks have “John Bonham” embossed on each stick along with “Hickory”.

Made by Led Zeppelin drum builder Eddie Ryan, the custom 5B Prime Hickory drum sticks measure 15.95 long by .59 in diameter. The sticks show incredible wear, as Bonham used them on multiple occasions. The photo shown here with the lot is not the drumsticks being offered, it is shown as a reference to Bonham's style of drumming.


Letter of provenance and a Gotta Have Rock and Roll Certificate of Authenticity.
