In 2020, Steve was added to the Scorpion Percussion roster as a Signature Artist, with his signature stick: an Immortal Series 5B stick with a 17” length, .60” diameter, Acorn tip, and a lacquer finish. “I’m very happy and excited to be part of the Scorpion Percussion family. They have the best customer service, and you can’t beat the price for the quality products that they put out. Scorpion Percussion sticks are, by far, the toughest sticks I’ve ever played with. I beat the heck out of my drums, and by the end of a show, you can barely tell they were played on. As a musician and a proud military BRAT, I also love working with a company that is operated and owned by musicians and a veteran.”
