great combination of power, balance and versatility

By Honu

Comments about Vic Firth Carmine Appice Signature Drumsticks:

Stick preference is very personal to each drummer so you really have to figure out what you like in a stick. I'm not usually a fan of famous drummer signature sticks. Sure these guys use these sticks but it always seemed more like a nice marketing scheme. I've tried a number of them and most don't work for me (though I do use the Buddy Rich model occasionally). A friend of mine highly suggested the Carmine Appice sticks and I was skeptical. When I started playing them though I immediately noticed how well balanced they were in my hands. They have a heft but without that feeling of heavy lumbar like 2b's or larger sticks. The tip is a bit smaller than I like but I could still get a good solid smack with it. What stands out most is the playability of the sticks. I could move them around the kit well and felt like I could adjust my dynamics easily. These sticks hit a nice sweet spot for me, power with enough lightness for dynamic touch. I highly recommend a test drive.

Great sticks!

By Justin McNeill

from Weston , Florida

Comments about Vic Firth Carmine Appice Signature Drumsticks:

These sticks feel heavy in the grip, but they also allow you to have a nice bounce to the stick due to the way it tapers off to a 5a tip. You can really fly with these sticks yet the grip feels like a heavier stick. If you want to get heavier ,just turn the stick around to use the butt end. Also the knurled butt end allows you to have more finger control of the stick.

Wish thay had a nylon tip

By Ken-2dyzH

Comments about Vic Firth Carmine Appice Signature Drumsticks:

I started using these Carmine Appice sticks when they were first made Regal Tip. At that time they had a nylon or wood tip option with a better tear drop tip design, in my opinion.Now that they are made by Vic Firth they only come in a wood tip. The wood tip does not cut as good as the nylon does on cymbals, so I think this is a downfall. I liked the Regal Tip teardrop tip shape better than the current elongated acorn tip with the Vic Firth model.The sticks are very durable and take a long time with a lot of rimshot action before they start to splinter and eventually crack. This is a plus.The varnish used on these Vic Firth sticks is also different on the Vic version than the Regal Tip style. When new the Regal tip version "felt" like a broke in stick. The Vic Firth model is very slippery when new and especially when they get wet with sweat. I actually had to take some sand paper to them to break these Vic sticks in. There is something about the varnish that Regal Tip uses on their sticks that makes them feel broke in when new.These stcks have good balance and response. All in all they are OK.

Nice sticks.

By Reid

from MA

Comments about Vic Firth Carmine Appice Signature Drumsticks:

I can feel the power in these sticks. They're a little heavy, as sticks go, and definitely not for jazz or light playing. The tips mark easily on my RealFeel pad. When using the butt end of the stick to play, you have to hold it up pretty high. Otherwise the second best sticks I've ever owned, after my Hornets - only because they're more versatile.

Great all around stick for recording and live.

By Bill Sanders

from Columbia, TN

Comments about Vic Firth Carmine Appice Signature Drumsticks:

I've used this stick since the design came out. I use a rudimental grip jazz and blues so the tip size works great. When I play rock I play match grip. It's great to just flip the stick and get the extra power. It's like two pair of sticks for the price of one!

The never ending stick.

You can play with these sticks for a very long time before they break. I have found them very durable and weighted to my liking.
