I was about to buy yet another set of Vic firth, when I read about the Chad Smith series from Vater. They are awesome sticks. Well balanced and durable. Try them if ya haven't yet. You'll love'em!!
I've used these sticks for 10 years, and would never play another model. They have an excellent weight for harder hitting drummers, and the fuller taper helps to prolong the life of the stick. Vater does a great job of weight-matching each pair for the perfect feel. Worth every penny.
These Chad Smith Funkblasters are amazing. They are a lot lighter than they would seem. Honestly they are lighter than the 5B that they are modeled after! They are very beefy and after a good 3 hour jam session a 2B would already be chipping, but these only had dents. And I hit HARD. Strongly recommended for any metal, rock, or any other heavy hitter. Very nice. I will be sticking (no pun intended) to Vater and their Chad Smith Funkblaster for a LONG time!
I lick these sticks because they are perfect in length and when you use them they aren't as heavy as they look. Its very hard to break a pair of chad smith's sticks, I recommend these sticks to any player who breaks sticks easily.
