I've been using the ACR wood tip sticks for about ten years now. They are durable, sound great on ride cymbals, and are reasonably priced. The ACR is like a long 2B. Because they have excellent balance, they don't feel heavy when you are playing. If you are a drummer whose hands occasionally cramp when playing with small diameter sticks, you may want to think about stepping up to a thicker stick. If so, consider the ACR.

I'm 16 and I'm church drummer, I play 4 times a week in my church. I've been playing in church for around 5 years now, I play for 1 hour and 15 minutes every service. So I bought 2 pairs of these and I thought 5BNs would hold up, first Sunday service and they break in the 2nd song of praise. Next Sunday I use the other pair, again, breaks during performing; it got to the point where I was left one stick from each pair and used those together and once again, they broke while performing. I don't consider myself a hard hitter, mostly because I am mic'd up so there is no need to wack the drum set. I don't know why these sticks broker faster than my 5ANs that would usually last me 4 to 5 weeks. Point is, I'm disappointed in these sticks, I will not be buying anymore 5B drumsticks anymore.

        Comments about Vic Firth American Classic Hickory Drumsticks:

        You guys seriously need to stock more of the 3A Vic Firth drumsticks in stores. Every Christmas I come in and purchase 5 or more pairs and this was the first time your Town Square, Las Vegas, NV store was completely sold out. Apparently everyone is using them now a days. Hahahaha. Love your Town Square store. Easy to navigate the floor, clean and organized facilities and store floor. The guys are always so helpful and kind. I don't remember the young man who helped me place my online order but he was great. Called around to the North Las Vegas store for me and then offered to take the hassle out of ordering online.

        These were nylon tipped and they make for great ride cymbal effect. The down-side is, for some reason rim shot beats are horrible. I have to use ride hits in right hand with nylon tip and regular all wood for rims. Crazy!

        Best weight, feel & length. Love the wood tip. Same sticks used by Matt Cameron. I tried them about 18 years ago, and have used them ever since!

        Big loud sticks

        Comments about American Classic Hickory Drumsticks:

        I got the 3A sticks they have a very loud and open sound to them especially on the cymbals. The only complaint is that I feel every little vibration through the stick into my hands. I feel that this will wear my wands down during long shows or rehearsal and can only be used for loud music.

                  I rotate between a few churches, each with very different acoustics. My go to stick is the VicFirth X5B but I needed something that would be easier to use in smaller environments so I ordered a pair of the 7A's to try and they work very well. Sticks are not the biggest factor in controlling your sound but every bit can help. These sticks are lighter in the hand and I think that makes a big difference mentally in being aware of how hard you are hitting.
