Sugar Maple Fusion Sticks

By Kagiso Mogadingoane

from Denver, CO

Wow!! Wow!! AND WOW!! I use these sticks insted of 5B's cause i like the ball head and shoulder taper. These sugar maple stciks are a half ounce lighter per stick, I weighted them out. The hickory fusions weight at 2 Oz a stick 4 Oz a pair, Sugar Maple 1.5 Oz a stick 3 Oz a pair. Having said that, HECK YEAH!! You can feel the differance rigt away and man do I feel like "Flash" when I use these sticks. I only wish they had the Sugar Maple in the Power 5A's. Other then that these stick are lighter and faster, so if you want to be like "Flash" buy them!!

Great stick

By Jeffrey Rose

from Hamilton,Ohio

The Vater Sugar Maple Drumsticks are great. They're what I've been looking for. They're light yet durable. These stick are just right. They have good rebound and pack a punch. The only other drumsticks that are this light were First Act drumsticks, but they break after playing a few songs. Thanks Vater. This is the stick I'll use from now on.

NOT for heavy hitters

By Nathan Bailey

from Hempstead, NY

I accidentally bought a 12 pack of these along with a hickory 12 pack without realizing that they both weren't hickory. I play pretty hard and these just do not hold up. I've gone though 5 pair in about a week. I don't play excessively hard, but I do put force on my sticks. I can see the uses for lighter playing, but if you play hard don't waste your money on Sugar Maple sticks. And don't get me wrong, I love Vater, it's just the wood.

Through Hell And Back

By Llaine Comstock

from Phoenix, AZ

So, my drummer had a set of wood 7a's, and they've been USED. They finally broke after countless practices and recording sessions over an 8 month period. (In a metal band, no less.) To the day they broke, the tone remained amazing. I would recommend these sticks to everyone.

Perfect in every weight!

By Je B

from Arlington, TX

I purchased these about a week ago. I was looking for a stick that was a bit thinner and a smidge lighter than the 5A Vater LAs that I have a boatload of also, thicker than the Steve Jordan's which I do dig, but there just a bit too thin. The Sugar Maple Recording Wood fit that space perfectly. I would recommend these sticks to any fast stick fan. You get what your in need of without sacrificing durability or feel.

HOLY #$*&$&*#!!!! This #1

By Brendan-Wannabe-Famous

from Highland, Md

So I really liked fast sticks and preferably maple for light weight and great sound. I played with Dave Weckl's Signature Sticks for about a year and a half. At a festival I was talking to the drummer of a band and told him how I liked the speed and love to play fusion and jazz and etc. He told me about these babies and let me tell you what they are far and away my favorite. The feel and the speed I get out of these is amazing. I was worried about the 7A being a little to thin and fragile but that has not been a problem at all. BUY THIS STICK YOU WILL HAVE "A DRUM DREAM."
