  • durability at a great price

    As reviewed by brettbags on 8/23/2006

    These are simply the best wooden sticks you can buy in my opinion. I have used the 5A's and 7A's in wooden tip and plastic tip and they are amazing sticks. Very balanced and they have a fantastic grip to em. These sticks really last me a long time and I would suggest these to anyone serious about drumming, especially those hard hitters because these suckers will last. They are a little heavier in my opinion then other sticks, but the extra weight is well worth it.

  • Awesome Sticks !!!

    As reviewed by noahr31 on 8/10/2006

    These hickory drumsticks are really awesome sticks. The sticks I were using before I tried a pair of Vater's broke way to easy. When I went to Guitar Center, I got a good deal on some Vater sticks. I have been using them ever since. I have been using them for about two years now. They are really strong for plain Hickory sticks. I never expected them to last as long as they do. So when the time comes, don't hesitate. You have to buy some sticks from vader. You won't be disappointed!

  • The mist durable sticks I've ever used

    As reviewed by Conner Lathem on 3/5/2012

    Before I get into any details about these sticks, let me just say that I mainly play Rock/Punk music, like what the Ramones played. That means constant eighth notes on the Hi Hat at over 200 BPM. And I can't just tap the hats lightly, either. I have to go fast AND hit it hard enough to get some decent volume. Needless to say, after an hour and a half of that, the drum sticks usually can't take much more before they break. I purchased a pair of the Vater 7As because I like to experiment with different brands each time I buy new sticks, in hopes of finding something perfect for what I play. When I took these out of the package/sleeve, I was surprised by how heavy they were for 7As. They weighed the same as my Sound Percussion 5As! So I sat down on my kit and started playing. At first, the extra weight kind of threw off my playing, but after about an hour, I got used to it. Another full hour went by, and I was completely exhausted . . . . but these Vater sticks on the other hand, were just a little scratched up. I was impressed. About three days went by, and these sticks still were still holding up. At this point they'd beat the record of any other stick I'd ever owned (and I don't have bad technique or anything. Songs like Zero Zero UFO at around 225 BPM will really kill your sticks. The eighth notes on the hats are so fast you can barley hear them). I was sure the sticks would break sometime soon though. How could they put up with much more? A week went by. They STILL will not break! I'm sitting here staring at my chewed up, practically unusable sticks in amazement. Have you ever seen a stick get so messed up that you couldn't use it? Without it actually breaking? I'm in awe. This is the best 7A stick I've ever used (Even though it feels like a 5A). The heaviness doesn't out-weigh the fact these sticks have the perfect balance, feel, and insane durability that every stick should have. I'd give them six stars if I could.
