Vic Firth 5AN nylon tip

Nicely balance and comfortable. I don't tire playing with these sticks. No cramping-no fatigue. I recommend these. Good value, too. Just don't keep beating the cymbal sides too much.

Sticks are great but the red paint comes off the sticks easy takes a little more than Lava or Fast Orange to clean your hands. If you do buy the red ones make sure to rinse the paint off before using. I also bought black ones and those seem to be fine. Either the red paint wasn't cured properly or this is just something you have to expect for discounted drumsticks.

Good Sticks

By metalfan526

from Bronx,NY

Comments about Nova Hickory Drum Sticks:

These sticks are really good. They look and feel great. The only down side is like all other black sticks, the paint of the sticks start to chip because of the hi-hat and other cymbals but it doesn't hurt the way they feel or sound. Overall great sticks!

very good drum sticks.

By Alex

from Salina, KS

Comments about Nova Hickory Drum Sticks:

I got mine about 2 weeks ago and I'm a rough drummer. So far these sticks have held up with good quality, nice weight, and few chips. I bought the red 5A and they are excellent sticks. I recommend.

Not good not bad

By Levi

from Missouri

Comments about Nova Hickory Drum Sticks:

These sticks are a great value dont get me wrong. I bought a couple pairs of them to start off with but, that price adds up cause these sticks break rather easily. I play in a metalcore band and i play fairly hard, my first pair broke within the first month. They are good sticks very light and fast, just break a little to easy.

Comments about Nova Hickory Drum Sticks:

These sticks are very good. I have been getting these sticks for a while. The red ones r the coolest. I play and electric and an acoustic set and both of these work well with the sticks.

Ehhh.

By Tyler

from Oh

Comments about Nova Hickory Drum Sticks:

When i first played with the sticks, i definitely noticed the quality that's made vic firth a big name in drum sticks. Light weight, comfortable, and seemingly durable. A couple things wrong were obviously they leave marks on your kit(which doesnt bother me considering its time for new heads), and also, after a couple weeks, the top portion of one of them broke off. Im not a super hard player, but apparently hard enough to break them. Overall though, decent sticks for beginners, and for the price.

choppin wood

By Vic

from Las Vegas, Nevada

Comments about Nova Hickory Drum Sticks:

I picked up therse sticks because i needed alot of sticks really cheap and really fast. I use 5A and well the red stain stood out. I figured why not. Well they turned out to be fairly durable and are just a striking visual live. All in all this is the best deal for the price you can get on 5A hickory.

Good Sticks, For a Good Price

By Eddie Diaz

from Los Angeles, Ca

Comments about Nova Hickory Drum Sticks:

Everything about these sticks are excellent, however they are pretty thick and if you own an acoustic set you better stay away from the black sticks they do tend to lead more noticeable marks on your drum heads and cymbals. Other that take advantage of these great, low priced sticks today !

      The factory should buff the paint off the tips, so that the paint doesn't leave marks on White Coated Heads

      Comments about Nova Hickory Drum Sticks:

      I wanted these sticks for the color, and the price is great. The tips are painted, and other reviewers noted that they marked their heads and cymbals, so I wiped them hard with a rag dampened with acetone, and then sanded the tips. There are colored sticks with unpainted heads that cost more if you want to avoid the work.

      They made blacks ticks on my brand new, and very white snare head, and they colored my hands black with paint. I wanted good sticks, and I got a bad paintbrush...

      Would not recommend these

      By Craig

      from undisclosed

      Verified Buyer

      Comments about Nova Hickory Drum Sticks:

      Ive owned Vic Firth sticks for years now and are very happy with the quality of their products. It's my understanding these Nova sticks are VF 2nds but only visual blemishes. I received these and tried them rigjt away. I didnt even get through 2 songs before one broke! (and no it wasn't a rim shot). Obviously I question the quality of these sticks. I'll be going back to VF '1sts'
