I used to think that a drum stick was just a drum stick until I played Vic Firths. I had been so used to using no name brand sticks, and once I picked up a pair of these, I could feel the difference immediately. You pick them up, and before even playing with them, you can tell how much precision goes into these sticks. Not only is the weight of each stick completely equal, the stick itself is so perfectly balanced that it makes playing so much more fun and enjoyable. I recommend these to anyone who plays any type of drum, in any style.

These were good drumsticks. I used Vic Firth sticks for a long time, and they were always good. These particular sticks performed very well. They were 5A's, so they were lightweight, easy to grip, and were very easy to move around. When you play drums fast, it helps to have a stick that is not too heavy to use. These also had a lacquer coating, so they had a good grip. My only problem with these were that they had wooden tips. I learned that wooden tips seem to come apart and shred after a while, but only if you're hitting cymbals, not if you're just hitting drums. If you decide to buy these sticks, buy the kind with a nylon tip, they will last longer.

This is a good product, very classic. I bought this sticks because my first sticks were vic firth. The 5A size, from mypoint of view is a very confortable size, because of the light weight and thickness.

I use these drum sticks for playing Rockband and it works just fine. I cannot comment on how they perform for real drummers with real drums. But for playing Rockband it is fine. Thanks.

I had been looking around all over for a set of these to go along with my kit. These are top of the line of its kind.

These sticks are solid hickory, which is insanely durable, and sounds great for classic rock, and punk rock drums. These sticks are weight, and sound matched, so each pair will sound and feel almost identical.

Yes, I'm a hack.
Yes, Rock Band is the first (and only) drums I've ever played.

However, with the breaking of the original RB sticks I was looking for a new set. Very very pleased with the weight of these (slightly heavier) and response of them. I think my playing improved a bit using these, I seem to have more control and precision. They just "feel" better. Got these in October 2009, and 5 months later, they are still in great shape.

Great value, great sticks. I'd highly recommend them for any of us wannabees. :)

Drum sticks. They work. Used them for Rock Band, brought them over to a friend's for band practice. Would buy again.
