I have been using these sticks for about 5 months now, I have always used either regal tips or vic firth, but these vater sticks are awesome. The length and balance are excellent, please do not stop making these!!!!
I love Vater sticks, period. I play with nothing else. I have used many different Vater sticks, and still use the ROCK stick and others very often. But when I need reach and speed and power, NOTHING performs for me, NOTHING works for me, NOTHING gives me equal speed and agility like the David Silveria DSK. It's LONG but not heavy. It works harder so that you work less. Don't let the length scare you, try it ONCE and you'll agree. It's a gem.
As an up-and-coming Variety Drummer (Patent Pending ~_^), I found myself in dire need of a stick that would not only shine in all formats of music, but would also stand the test of my thunderous drumming. I started off playing Vic Firth. After that, Zildjian. After that, Hot Sticks (Dear God). Vic Firth again, generic no name sticks, Hot Sticks, back to Vic Firth...Then, as I flipped through the liner notes for Follow The Leader, I saw that Mr. Silveria played Vater sticks, a brand I had not yet tried. So I went to the site and found the exact sticks he's been using for X amount of years, the signature DSK sticks. I searched for a while, but finally found a Vater distributor in my local Volkwein's shop. I had the guy who has helped me for two years straight with drumming questions order me a brick of them, and two weeks later, I had my sticks. I gotta say, I've never ever played a pair of sticks like the DSKs. The extra reach is, well, extra reach, the power makes you feel like a thunder God, and the durability is unbeatable. Honestly, it takes me 3-4 months, MONTHS to break these sticks, and I play every day, 1-5 hours. Look at my playing styles! Also, I found that although most nylon tips are gone within a week (or first play - Hot sticks *cringe*), the DSK tips only broke off when shut in a freaking car door (accident >_>) or when beat mercilessly against a cracked cymbal. The only grip I have is that it's someone else's sig on the stick, so I'll have to have Vater design me my own along these lines someday =D Bottom line, you can't beat these sticks, no matter how hard you try. What're you waiting for?
I've tried every other barnds from vic firth to pro mark. None of them sticks have been able to hold up to what ever I throw at it. I tried them once and can say I'm searching no more for a stick that can be depended on night after night.
These sticks are indeed quite crafty. The added length on the handle/taper amkes a world of a difference and feels more comfortable for those of us with larger hands. The weight is placed more towards the tip, giving it a more solid feel.Great for playing on bells and tom grooves. The tips, couldn't ask for more. Also great as rudiment sticks to build up wrist reflexes naturally.
I play hard rock and these sticks have lasted the longest and have a great feel to them.
These sticks are great. Not only because the are product of one of todays best drummers in one of todays best bands, but because they play awesome. They really got some bite to them. They're long for getting cymbals, and thick to get the very best sound out of your drums. If your new to drumming, start with something smaller, but work your way up to these. KORN Forever.
Many sticks that I have used have broken within 2 weeks. These sticks I bought two months ago and they're in great shape. I play metal/death metal music, am i'm a hard hitter. These sticks are perfect for any hard-hitting drummer out there. I recommend these drum sticks to anyone.
The DSK's are strong powerful sticks that don't even seem like their wood sticks. THey're very comfortable and are the best wood sticks i've ever played. I put Ahead grip tape on mine, just because the length makes mine slip. i also use ahead gloves. Just buy the sticks and the tape if you haven't yet and you'll agree.
I absolutely love these sticks. I am a david fan, yes, but still they are the perfect length and thickness for what i need. The tips give the perfect sound on ride cymbals.
These sticks are perfect for the drummer who likes to jam it hard!!! The added weight at the tip is really helpful. It's a bigger and better boost from the 5A's I used to use.
I've been playing drums for 16 yrs and finally a stick has been made to suit my style! This is the only 17" stick that doesn't weigh a ton or slow me down. It's also nice having nylon tips that don't break before the rest of the stick. If Dave's endorsement ever falls through. Just scratch off his name and throw on mine!! I'll play with these sticks anyday!
These sticks are wonderful. I love the length of them. They are solid. It took me a while just to break them in. The wood is amazing. I can reach my drums and cymbals with no effort at all. Only problem that I had was a few nylon tips have broken off of some of my sticks. But other than that, I suggest grabbing a few pairs of these. They are amazing. I plan to keep using these for future use. They really project sound as well. The barrel tips just really project the attack. They feel a little heavier than 5B's, but they are wonderful. I really do recommend these sticks. Great investment. Toughest sticks by far that I have played with. Go get a pair. Worth the money.
They're certainly a step up from 5A's, bigger, longer, and a huge taper (and just slightly heavier). Excellent control, good rebound, and very balanced.
Wow, these are some of the best sticks (in my opinion) that have been made. They are very comfortable, and I love the length, since I havn't seen any others this long. It gives me that right reach. Also it's god for hard hitting, and the nylon tips don't break off! Pretty good for soft playing too. Great Stcik!
As with most drummers, I've played with the many different brands of sticks on the market. Most of these sticks shatter or splinter within a matter of days or the tips break off, you name it. When I came across the Vater DSK model, I thought what the heck. Bought 5 pair over 6 months ago and still have 3 pairs untouched. I play hard rock/heavy metal almost daily and can't believe the performance of these sticks. Excellent length, weight, taper, everything is perfect, except I didn't design them. I HIGHLY recommend these sticks. You won't be disappointed.
WOW. These sticks are pretty stout. Its going to take a LOT to wear these sticks down. I've put a pair through some serious playing and have yet to shed much sawdust..if any at all... Needless to say...It will be quite easy to clean up after these.
As over the years that i play my drums i have found a trend...Sooner or later the skin will break the stick in half, within a few weeks or so. That doesn't happen with these sticks. They are as solid as AHEAD sticks. Definatly try them. Length wise, you will find that you will reach much more easily to far away cymbals or drums. Dance Metal, like rammstein if youre wondering, requires a loud snare, these sticks will make what you thought loud seem like ghost notes. Best sticks i've played so far.
I love Vater sticks, period. I play with nothing else. This stick feels so smooth, heavy, beefy, and suprisingly fast. It's great for rock and metal.
There's no better stick than the DSK's manufactured by Vater. Now listen here, I have used from Vic Firth to Zildjian and back to no-brand sticks if I had no cash for high quality sticks. But let me tell you this, from one of the angriest and the most heavy-hitting drummer in Kansas, Vater sticks last longer than anything. Then I came along to purchasing Vater sticks that were designed by David Silveria, one of my favorite drummers of all time. I never would've thought that these sticks would've lasted as long as they did. I've played at Hayden High football games, and you need to play loud. The DSKs are just for that sort of thing. Vic Firth sticks just aren't appealing to me these days, and Vater has come to prove it. I broke a VF 2B model stick the first time I tried them out! And I hit 20 time as hard today! Vater sticks, however, even the thinnest pair, lasted for two hours of straight, heavy-hitting, in-your-flippin'-face drumming. The DSKs are more powerful than any stick made by VF. I reccommend these sticks to any angry drummer.
