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.

broke within two weeks

By brettbags

from NJ

Comments about Vic Firth American Classic Hickory Drumsticks:

I was so happy when I bought these sticks because they felt so great in the store, too bad they only last me two weeks of playing. The grip was great, the feel was great, maybe I just got a bad pair. I have owned a pair in the past, they lasted me about a month, it's not that long but they did their job.

Niiiiice sticks

By Scania86

from Garden Grove, CA

Comments about Vic Firth American Classic Hickory Drumsticks:

Nice grip. Wears a little quickly from cymbal chipping but, otherwise they are my favs for playing on acoustics. Great price so are easily replaced once they wear out.

GET THESE STICKS!

By Jon

from Douglasville, GA

Comments about Vic Firth American Classic Hickory Drumsticks:

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!

Great Sticks

By Keith Pereira

from Silver Spring, MD

Comments about Vic Firth American Classic Hickory Drumsticks:

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.

Superior comfort

By Reuben Lujan

from Sacramento, CA

Comments about Vic Firth American Classic Hickory Drumsticks:

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.

Big loud sticks

By Brian

from undisclosed

Verified Buyer

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.

          Comments about Vic Firth American Classic Hickory Drumsticks:

          These sticks don't get the job done.
          I'm an R&B, Hip-Hop and Rap drummer for a few different artists and groups. I have my cymbals angled downwards, and hit them in a swiping motion. My drums are somewhat lower, so there's really no rim contact either. These sticks have amazing response, but they only lasted me about 30 minutes of a show. I bought 4 pairs, and they look and feel wonderful. I thought they'd be perfect for a show. So I used them, and they kept snapping. There was no shredding on the stick. They just snapped, right in half. I lost about $35 for these sticks, (again, I bought 4 pairs), they all broke in one night of playing. (About two hours).

          Great Sticks

          By Peter

          from California

          Comments about Vic Firth American Classic Hickory Drumsticks:

          I own the 7A Nylon tips and they are great sticks. They feel good in my hands and are a good weight for my personal perferences. I have yet to break my pair and they are still going strong. I'm not sure if you would personally like the feel of these sticks, but you should definately try them out, I think they are great sticks.

          incredible quality

          By Mike

          from Massachusetts

          Comments about Vic Firth American Classic Hickory Drumsticks:

          For a while, I just breaking sticks because I do a lot of rim shots. I then bought 2 pairs of these sticks, one 7A and one Rock. I've had these for about 3 months, and still no sign of them breaking any time soon, compared to the 1 month life of my old sticks. The 7A's are extremely light so they make it easy to roll and play fast, while the Rock sticks are huge and give the drum a full, open sound. Buy these sticks, they are the best sticks you can get.

          Amazingly durable

          By drumsarefun

          from Staten Island, NY

          Comments about Vic Firth American Classic Hickory Drumsticks:

          I bought a pair of these with the nylon tip about a year ago and I am stunned at how long they lasted. My friend acedently threw them into a fire about a month after I got them and they came out fine. I've done everything imagineable to these sticks and they never broke. They've gone out 4th story windows and lived through it. They have have survived countless powertools. Not to mention slamming and throwing them around. And to top it off I consistantly used them to play. I recomend them to anybody who wants a good durable stick.

          from South Bend, IN

          Comments about Vic Firth American Classic Hickory Drumsticks:

          I bought these sticks in a light weight, nylon tip and expected them to sound good. They sounded great, but what amazed me was their durability, they're almost indestructable. I play rock, blues, and jazz, and these sticks worked for all, great investment.

          I bought these sticks a long time ago from guitar center and after I saw how durable and cheap they were it's all I ever buy. Vic Firth makes the best sticks for set and everthing else. They sound great with cymbals and on sanre and toms. They're AWESOME!!!
