If you haven't seen Vic Firth's factory tour video, you should see it. I've played ProMark and Vater sticks for years, and Vic Firth blows them out of the water. They are much lighter, never warp, and sound great. Vic Firth are by far the highest quality sticks out there. The fact that you can buy a brick and save $$ doesn't hurt either!

Nylon tips aren't the way to go. Always go for wood tips. The natural sound of a cymbal is from a wood tip.

      Been using this stick for a while now. Never going to change. It's a preference thing. Feels right in my hands compared to other sticks used in the past. If your a new drummer, give them a shot.

        Comments about Vic Firth 12-Pair American Classic Hickory Drumsticks:

        Nice straight sticks all 12 perfect -- 17" long --- again perfect -- I use them for many types of music. I'm not a metal drummer but the weight of the stick creates the attack out of the drum you want and still able to lay down that great jazz feel as well.

        I was a Vater user not anymore

          Comments about Vic Firth 12-Pair American Classic Hickory Drumsticks:

          I selected 5B as the size and when I got them the sticks said 5BN, and I don't know what size that is. I've never heard of that size. Not 100% satisfied. I wish I would have gotten some practice pads instead of sticks for that price. The nylon/plastic like tips increase cymbal sound clarity but these pair are not one of my favorites. Fiberglass sticks are where it's at for me.

                Always been using Promark until they changed the size of the tip and became tip-heavy on the 7AN. The Vic Firth then became my stick of choice.

                      So as you can see, my heading says "GREAT!", but my rating says 4 stars "Good". I think these sticks are great in almost every way. They are sturdy, last long, not easy to break, absorb energy greatly, and feel absolutely comfortable. However, there is one thing that I don't like. I'm growing not to be a fan of 5B sizes. Especially these ones. They feel a bit heavy, so they aren't ideal for the "gentle-istic" if you will, but if you are a guy who likes that ruggedness, then go for it. I'm more a 2A or 2B guy I guess. I just prefer something lighter. Otherwise, the sticks are fantastic!
