Vater is one of the most recognizable names for any drummer. They're famous for their huge variety of drumsticks and percussion mallets, and they also make a ton of other accessories and drumming essentials to help you get the most out of your drum set. Whatever percussion gear you're looking for, there's a good chance you'll find it here in Vater's selection.
For all of the different products that come out of Vater's warehouse doors, however, their sticks are still the core of the brand. From the simple Junior Sticks, splashsticks and nylon tips to their signature Mike Wrengen and Virgil Donati sticks, there are plenty to choose from to get the tip and material you prefer. Vater also has brushes for every drum and style, including the Monster and its smaller brother the Little Monster, as well as cajon brushes, fixed and retractable wire brushes and more. For something punchier than a standard brush while remaining softer than a hard stick, check out the Vater Whip varieties. You can also get whatever mallets you need for the tenor, timpani, vibraphone, marimba, gong, bass drum and anything else that uses a felt beater.
Naturally, with all of these sticks and mallets come the accessories that go hand-in-hand. If you prefer a grippy handle on your sticks, stock up on some grip tape to wrap them. You can also turn your sticks into instruments in their own right with the StickMate tambourine and shaker, which add an extra dimension of percussion sound to every motion of the sticks. A stick bag is handy for protecting your favorite sticks during travel and making sure you'll never misplace one, and stick holders that fasten to your stand or rack are great for swapping between sticks for different songs or just having a place to put them during intermission.
Vater's other accessories can help you keep the rest of your drum kit in good shape. For your cymbals, there are fasteners, mute pads, polish and even a skull-shaped cymbal stand nut. Mutes and practice pads abound for the drums, too, not to mention polish for them as well. Need to keep yourself quenched when you're sweating it out on stage? How about a drink holder that mounts to your stand or rack? Vater thought of that, too.
Whether you're looking for sticks or mallets or just a few bags and accessories, Vater is a great choice for a wide range of different drummer goodies. Take your time to pick out all the gear that you need—being well-prepared is an important part of putting on an amazing performance.
