Vic Firth's American Classic 5A drum sticks are now available in a special 4-pair pack. Trusted by professionals worldwide for their durability, balance and tone, these hickory sticks produce rich articulation and full-bodied sound. The teardrop tip offers crisp cymbal definition while the medium taper transmits energy for commanding volume and speed. Whether performing on stage, recording in the studio, or practicing at home, drummers at every level will appreciate the consistent quality and performance of these sticks.

Bold Design and Select Hickory for Tonal Clarity

Turned from high-quality hickory, the American Classic 5A sticks provide warm, resonant tone and lasting durability. The hickory wood transmits vibrations efficiently for articulate expression and dynamic control. The bold, acorn-shaped tip cuts through for clear cymbal articulation and definition.

Perfectly Balanced for Power and Control

With a medium taper and 0.565" diameter, these sticks offer an ideal balance of power and finesse. The taper focuses energy for commanding volume and speed while remaining light enough for dexterous stick work. The result is a highly responsive stick that transmits both subtlety and strength.

Consistent Quality Across the Kit

Each stick in this 4-pair pack is weight-matched and pitch-paired using Vic Firth's precision manufacturing techniques. This ensures uniform feel and sound for consistent performance. Whether playing a single stroke roll, paradiddle or drum fill, drummers can count on precision balance and tone.

Stylish and Practical

The bold black finish gives an iconic look on stage or in photos and videos. The lacquer coating also provides protection from moisture and wear. This special pack offers an exceptional value for stocking up on high-performance drum sticks.
