My first shipment that arrived was raw, unfinished wood with no tips on the drumsticks. They were fat, rough wood and useless as far as drumsticks were concerned. But, Guitar Center turned that around with shipping a second batch to replace them, (Yes, i thought they might be the same as the first product shipped.) They were a finished product, much thinner than the first shipment, and had nylon tips. Guitar Center made good on a bad product.

MB says Dis Stick GOOD

By MB

from Cali Baby

Comments about Nova 12-Pair Hickory Drumsticks:

I've used 5B Nylon Nova sticks for years and NEVER lost a tip. Although I have busted a few tips off but never has one come unguled. Very few Nova sticks break on the grain. Slow shredding is the rule and these sticks follow that rule effortlessly. The quality and price can't be beat. Ha... get it, beat.

for the money? yeah... worth it.

Comments about Nova 12-Pair Hickory Drumsticks:

i use the 5A nylon ones... i got a 20 pack like 3 years ago and am just now buying another multipack... these things really are the shiznit. i play metal at home and play weekly in a cover band, so you can thrash them and they hold up. the nylon tips eventually snap in half, and outlast the sticks themselves.

NOVA Sticks

By Drew Gilroy

from Virginia

Comments about Nova 12-Pair Hickory Drumsticks:

I got these sticks and the first day I got them I broke one. More recently (1 month after purchase) I had a show at a local venue and I broke 5 sticks. It made me kind of mad that they were just breaking so easily. Most of them were breaking right under the tip. And I had a couple break in the middle in my left hand from hitting the rim and snare at the same time. But I am not worried because I remembered I had about 5 more pairs at my house. So even though they break easily for me, still a great bargain for the price. I will be ordering more soon and you should too!

Best bang for the buck

By mikeylikesdrums

from Newark, DE

Comments about Nova 12-Pair Hickory Drumsticks:

I play between 60-80 gigs per year and Nova sticks have been my primary stick for well over two years now. These are excellent sticks for the price. These are Vater sticks that failed to meet specs for whatever reason. My only complaint over the past few years is inconsistency. For example, I used 5B wood tips for a long time and they did a decent job. Out of 12 pairs, I would break between 6-8 sticks prematurely per batch, while the rest simply wore down like a good stick should. But I recently switched to 5B nylon tip and so far, I am very impressed! I have noticed a denser and more well balanced stick and I haven't broke one yet and I'm down to the last few pairs. Either Vater changed something in how they make these sticks or I just got a really good batch. I dunno. But I do know that Vater is stepping it up on these sticks - adding a new logo, better finish, and they are lasting longer. A word to the wise - mark your sticks so you don't break up the pair. These sticks vary in consistency from one pair to the next and if you mix and match, you'll notice a big change in the feel. If you break a stick, throw its twin into the junk/practice pile. But if you play with proper technique, you should get plenty of life out of these sticks. And you simply can't beat the price.

Solid buy

By Jamie

from Chicago

Comments about Nova 12-Pair Hickory Drumsticks:

Lightweight, straight, durable. I got the wood 5B's. The bead has a different shape than other 5B's-- these have a bead shaped like those oblong seedless grapes-- but they're fine. This is the way to go if you want low priced sticks that play fine and wont break easily. You'll want the denser premium sticks for gigging, but for home practice, when you're not that concerned with perfect tone and weight, use these.

Great sticks

By Bill Whittaker

from Oswego, NY

Comments about Nova 12-Pair Hickory Drumsticks:

I've been using these for the past 5 years. They changed a little for the better when they got the vic firth name printed on them. I buy the 2B nylon tips and they are as good as any signature stick for a lot less money. I'm working on beating world records for fastest single strokes on hands and fastest single strokes on feet. I use these sticks exclusively and they work excellent. I'm at 1000 bpms currently and plan to beat all record holders.

Heck yea there by Vic Firth

By Anthony Brown

from Morganfield, Ky

Comments about Nova 12-Pair Hickory Drumsticks:

these sticks are awesome they feel very good on the hands soft, smooth and can get a firm grip on them. Good dynamics control response if i want to play quite it does just that and if i want to play loud it projects sound really good with out damaging your heads. The stick will break before the heads will. Nylon tips r just amazing very strong its only strongest part of the stick. Gives and awesome bright sound from my cymbals which gives me the sound i was looking for on my kit and on the album very affordable even tho they break easily if you on a budget and a hard hitter like i am you know that its cheaper to replace these stick then buying new drum heads every gig and they r by Vic Firth my favorite sticks i use that makes it more epic . i recommend these sticks too the drummers that r hard hitters and on a budget good way to go.

NROCKN

By MICHAEL VIGIL

from Los Angeles, CA

Comments about Nova 12-Pair Hickory Drumsticks:

USA Hickory by VIC FIRTH: A solid buy @ half the price. NOVA is a good quality product. I use the ROCK nylon and wood tip model(s). In the 6 weeks since my purchase, I have yet to break a stick. Lots of dents; no splintering. I am still on first pair of the wood tip, though I have used a nylon tip pair for about an hour. My "friends" have been using the wood tip NOVA ROCK only (wanted to test durability).

      Comments about Nova 12-Pair Hickory Drumsticks:

      So I recently purchased these sticks in a nylon 5A and have been very impressed. The first pair I had about 2 hours practice time on them before breaking one. I'd sa pretty good considering that I am somewhat of a hard hitter. Didn't lose any tips like other ones I have bought in the past. They are nice and straight. I will definitely be stocking up on more of these in the future.

      cheap v.s. good in the best of both worlds

      By Glenn Schilling

      from Bethalto IL

      Comments about Nova 12-Pair Hickory Drumsticks:

      The price was right at the time, and I was surprised with the final results. The stick feels, and sounds good. That is all really relative though, and alas sometimes I can be a heavy hitter. In that case they snap in two right at the middle after a short play. But overall for the money it was a good deal.

      Comments about Nova 12-Pair Hickory Drumsticks:

      You will not be disappointed with these NOVA by Vic Firth. There was one slightly bent, out of the 48; not an issue. I ordered two 12 pair bricks. One NROCK and One WROCK. Oh what a happy man I am!

      Broke 5 in the first hour

      By David

      from Los Angeles, CA

      Comments about Nova 12-Pair Hickory Drumsticks:

      I like the feel of these sticks they don't tear up my hands as much as the classic Vic Firths, but I broke 5 of them in the first hour of practice and I wasn't playing that hard.
