As Mike says, this stick is great for "When I need to BASH!"

Johnston's 2451 is a great all-around design that can be used in any musical style. It has a grip size between a 5A and 5B with a gradual taper to a barrel tip for ride cymbal definition. The gradual taper gives the model a fantastic and quick feel around the kit.

The 2451 Hickory is heavier than the maple version, making it the right choice for live and hard-hitting performance settings.

"The 2451 is the stick I have dreamed about my whole career. This stick feels amazing in my hand and even better on the kit!"
-Mike Johnston

  • Fabulous Sticks!

    As reviewed by Scotty Dog on 12/30/2010

    I love these sticks! I got a set for christmas and have been using them since. I also have a pair of the maple 2451's and while I prefer the weight of the maple to the hickory, the hickory is not far behind. Perfect balance, good response, not too heavy but not too light either. I used to use Vater's 5A LA hickory sticks but not anymore! Get yourself a brick of these sticks, you won't be disappointed!
