    heavier than I thought it would be

    This stick is almost the exact same profile as my Johnny Rabb Traditional 5A with ball tip, which is my favorite stick ever (been drumming 55 years). The Rabb is no longer made. The Vater is 1/4" longer, and thicker towards the tip and ball. I read a review that said it was too lightweight but I took a chance. Turns out it is a much beefier feel than the Rabb stick. Also feels more substantial than my Vater LA 5A. I wouldn't use it for jazz, but for anything else it would be excellent. Blues, country, rock, fusion- great. Can't beat the 4 for 3 price. The stick quality is extremely high and the MF service can't be beat.

    Comments about Vater Gospel Drumsticks 5A - Buy 3 Get 1 Free:

    I thought that any stick designed for Gospel drumming would be able to withstand driving tempo's and keep up with constant playing. I have been drumming for about 30 years and haven't broken a stick in probably 2 years,(usually use ProMark). Typically the tips get worn off first. Not so with these Gospel series sticks from Vater. I ordered 4 pair of these based on an ad I saw in Modern Drummer for the Vater family's company. The extra length compared to a typical 5A was nice. However, out of 8 sticks, I have two left that are not broken. I am not a very heavy player, so I was very surprised to have one break during the first session after receiving them. I would not recommend these sticks and will not be buying any in the future. I just hope that the rest of Vater's line-up is of better quality.

    The best I've used so far

    I've been a die hard user of 3a's for a long time. They had the power, feel, and rebound that I wanted. That is, until I started playing 3 hour gigs 3 nights a week. I needed something lighter so I tried a typical 5a. Very comfy to play, but they lacked the weight I needed and the acorn tips sounded wimpy. I wanted a round tip stick that could give me the sound of a 3a without wearing myself out. The Gospel 5a's are it. Skinnier than a 3a, but the extra length makes up for the loss of weight. Plus they have a round tip just like my trusty 3a's. These are powerful and versatile sticks. The longer length allows greater flexibility of your hand position so you can make these feel as light or as heavy as you need to in order to fit the song. I never thought I'd quit the 3a's, but the gospel sticks deliver everything I needed.
