Overview

Featuring a more rigid response than hickory, the dense Japanese white oak construction of Vic Firth's Shogun 5A sticks provides added weight and power for a full drum sound and strong rhythmic projection. The hardness of the wood tip in oak creates a brighter cymbal sound and provides excellent definition during intricate ride patterns. This unique wood also produces an incredible cross-stick tone that really cuts through.

The 5A stick size is ideal for versatile percussionists with styles ranging from orchestral to light rock. The 5B stick size is ideal for percussionists seeking mid to high volumes - namely in marching band or rock applications.

Features
  • 5A specs:
  • Length - 16"
  • Diameter - .565"
  • 5B specs:
  • Length - 16"

The sticks felt great, nice balance, weight, and response. However one stick from the pair broke in under 2 hours of practice (not playing even close to full power). I have been using Vic Firth 5AN hickory sticks for several years and I do chew through them fairly fast, but I usually get several weeks of practice or a two shows. So I was dissapointed when these did not last one day. I wouldn't count these sticks out because of this one experience, but I can say that I will be switching to Promark shira kashi oak for my primary sticks.

    I often have some issues with the tips of Vic Firth sticks. Not these. Lots of loud blues/rock gigs played and the are holding up beautifully.

      Comments about Vic Firth Shogun Japanese White Oak:

      The Shoguns are great sticks for a different material (instead of hickory). I keep a pair in my stick bag and they have quickly turned into my primary set of sticks for drum kit/set and many of my associates have made it a trend. I think they have a great 5B punch on drums and a 5A sound on cymbals, which is something I like. For any drummer who is looking for a nice, durable set of sticks for the long haul, these are a great recommendation!

                Comments about Vic Firth Shogun Japanese White Oak:

                I love Vic Firth! Been using them ever since I started band back in middle school. But prior to the Shögun series, I had to use Pro Marks japanese white oak sticks, which were also really nice, but never gave me a Vic feel. So as soon as these came out after NAMM, I rushed to get a pair of 5a and 5b and I'm really impressed! Super smooth finish! Almost feels like a Vic Firth Titan stick. Really durable as well: Don't worry about beating the heck out of your drums and riding your crash cymbals cause these sticks can take it! Love love love them! Vic doesn't disappoint!

                  Solid well matched sticks - oak is a little heavier in the hands than hickory but
                  these sticks will last a long time.
