The SHOGUN® series by Vic Firth features Japanese oak for powerful cut and stout durability.
Featuring a more rigid response than hickory, the dense Japanese white oak construction of Vic Firth's Shogun 5A sticks provides added weight and power for a full drum sound and strong rhythmic projection. The hardness of the wood tip in oak creates a brighter cymbal sound and provides excellent definition during intricate ride patterns. This unique wood also produces an incredible cross-stick tone that really cuts through.
The 5B stick size is ideal for percussionists seeking mid to high volumes - namely in marching band or rock applications.
