The Vic Firth American Classic Drum Sticks With Barrel Tip Wood 5A. Part of Vic Firth's iconic American Classic line, these hickory drumsticks provide a balanced tone and articulate cymbal sound for any style of music. The barrel tip produces bright cymbal articulation, while the dense hickory wood minimizes flex and boosts volume. Whether you play rock, jazz, country or pop, these sticks are made to fit your needs. For over 40 years, Vic Firth has been the number one choice of drummers worldwide.

Barrel Tip Provides Crisp Cymbal Response

The barrel tip of the American Classic 5A sticks produces clean, articulate cymbal sounds with every strike. Compared to a teardrop tip, the barrel tip focuses the volume and delivers precise cymbal articulation. For drummers who prefer a crisp, bright tone, the barrel tip is ideal.

Dense Hickory Construction Minimizes Flex

Turned from select hickory, a dense hardwood with little flex, these drumsticks provide volume and durability. The hickory minimizes vibration for a solid feel and bold sound. Despite its density, hickory is also naturally shock-absorbent, which contributes to the stick's longevity. Overall, the hickory construction gives drummers a stick that is both hard-hitting and long-lasting.

Versatile Enough for Any Genre

Whether you play rock, jazz, pop or country music, the American Classic 5A sticks provide a balanced sound for any style. At 5A in diameter, these sticks have a medium weight and length, making them comfortable and responsive. The hickory wood and barrel tip combine to produce articulate cymbal tones and a full, rounded drum sound. Overall, the American Classic 5A sticks do it all.
