Great for the money

By brandon yangmi

from kansas city

Comments about Vic Firth Ahmir Questlove Thompson Signature Drumsticks:

Great for fast drumming and just drumming in general. They have great grip and one my favorite types of sticks. I have been using this pair for about half a year in tell holes riped into the grip and came off but I still think it's still worth the money.

Vic Firth Ahmir ?uestlove Thompson Signature Drumsticks

By Matthew Haden

from Phoenix, AZ

Comments about Vic Firth Ahmir Questlove Thompson Signature Drumsticks:

Been using them about 1 month. Love these. Thin & light for fast drumming. Not meant for power drumming, more for speed and intricacy (watch youtube clips of ?uestlove & F. Knuckles to see them in use) Longer than normal sticks, which takes some adjustment but actually helps lesson my usual neck & shoulder pain I have after drumming. Grips are not overly sticky or thick. Just enough texture to help keep me from dropping or throwing sticks as I sweat. ?uestlove is a musical genius, a walking music historian/encyclopedia, and apparently a good designer too.

    Comments about Vic Firth Ahmir Questlove Thompson Signature Drumsticks:

    I'm 16 and I play for my high school Jazz band. I saw these and immediately fell in love, I was at first iffy about how thin these sticks were, but they can hold up. Jazz is a complex genre of music, sometimes you need to play slow, fast, soft, loud; whatever the case may be, these sticks get the job done.

      Comments about Vic Firth Ahmir Questlove Thompson Signature Drumsticks:

      These are really awesome sticks. They are durable, tough, lightweight and easy to use. Good quality. If you're a fast drummer your going to love these sticks. Love the length 17 inches and very nice grip. Much respect to Questlove and Vic Firth for creating these phenomenal sticks. I would recommend these to any drummer to try. Worth every penny.

      Favorite Pair of Sticks

      By Chaser

      from Alpharetta, Georgia

      Comments about Vic Firth Ahmir Questlove Thompson Signature Drumsticks:

      I've been searching for the perfect pair of sticks recently, and I think I've found it. These are much longer and skinnier than the average stick, so I usually use them when playing jazz of funk. They aren't as good for any kind of heavy rock or metal just because of how small they are, but I still use them. Great sticks!

      Great sitck just too much money.

      By SCOTT

      from clio mi

      Comments about Vic Firth Ahmir Questlove Thompson Signature Drumsticks:

      I ordered a pair of these sticks the last time I ordered some sticks, and I have to say these are quite different, Like the Gavin Harrison drumsticks, I enjoyed the grip on these sticks, but I don't like super thin sticks but it was worth trying a pair. 4 stars because of the price.

          Comments about Vic Firth Ahmir Questlove Thompson Signature Drumsticks:

          These really have a very limited application in my opinion. The length is nice but they're not the only 17" stick out there. The dip is nice but unnecessary I think as for a stick like this that is so light and slim it's not like you'll lose 'em as you won't exactly be hammering away. These are great for what they're designed for: faster and lighter play emphasizing on cymbal work. Personal preference here but overall for what their given field of use is, I'd give these 5 stars if the thickness was just a tenth of an inch wider and the tip was a barrel over an extremely small acorn.

              It was great to use a new drumsticks and all thanks to questlove from the drummer of the roots in the tonight show starring jimmy fallon and the drumstick was very long and my dad measured 18 inches than steve gadd signature sticks because it is only 16 inches on steve gadd's sticks.
