I've used a lot of diferent sticks, but for me there is none better than the Vic 5A's. Balance and weight are perfect. It gives you space to work your dynamics It's perfect!
Everyone has Vic Firth sticks, and they are great sticks. I have a particular pair of sticks that have never broken yet. I've been playing drums for three years now, and i don't mean to brag, but I'm pretty fast. I always hit my crash whenever I can, and this pair of sticks has lasted me 2 years! THey are amazing and are still in good shape.
Here is the honest truth. Vic Firth sticks, any size, are just the most comfortable sticks I have ever used. Playing drums seems so much easier and my creativity just flows effortlessly with these sticks. I personally love the 2B, IT'S MY GO TO TO STICK!! However, in some cases due to volume or smaller venues, I use the 5B and/or the 5A. Vic's designs makes it easy to switch and still play comfortably.
I love how they play... they just feel right in my hands. My only complaint is that they broke waaayyy too quickly, got them for christmas and broke them last week.
Nothing beats the value of these sticks (5b). 5a's break on me too soon.
amazing. meaty, durable, full, focused, responsive, projection, bright on cymbals warm on drums, great sticks. next time you go on a stick run try some of them out.
The Vic Firth 1A sticks are definitely a great option for drummers looking for more reach than with most other VF sticks without having to deal with weight or bulk when they play. These sticks are as thick as any of the 5A or 5B options but have that powerful Taj Mahal tip style that mirrors what you would find with a 2B or Rock model. The fact that sticks are made of hickory means that they will hold up under heavy and hard playing but their diameter means that you will still have the speed and response your looking for with any of the thinner, shorter or maple models. I highly recommend the 1As to anyone.
These sticks are great! I have Hickory American Classic Nylon Rock and they are great, they are durable, light, and sound great. I recommend them to any drummer so if you are looking for sticks, get these. Next time I buy sticks I'll know what to buy.
I got these sticks after seeing Shannon Larkin (Godsmack) using them and MAN am I glad I did. I was using Vic Firth's 2BN sticks for years, but these sticks are a little longer and I like the extra. They aren't heavy, they're balanced nicely, and are now my new favorite sticks. If you play jazz, these are too heavy, but other than that, these are perfect!
I too have been using the Vic Firth 5a, 5an, extreme 5a/5an and I have to say that I absolutely love them. I have played around with a few other brands and these sticks by far out play any other stick on the market. I would recommend them for any style drummer!! Keep up the good work Vic Firth!
