OVERVIEW

A great way to stock up and save on your favorite Vater sticks.

The Vater 5A Drumsticks are formed from hickory “ the most popular drumstick material. Hickory is dense and strong so it is resistant to chipping and breaking. Stronger than maple, it also absorbs a lot of shock. As a result, these sticks lessen wrist and hand fatigue while playing

I bought these sticks for a great deal with a MF promo code. I like the way they feel in my hand. to me, they are a bit more beefy than other brands in the same size. I have already split a stick right down the middle after a week and I'm not sure if this was a flawed stick. I'm not a heavy player so only time will tell if these sticks pay for themselves. With the "free shipping" offered by MF, I would first order one pack to see how you like them.

Like a few others in the reviews, my pack had terribly uneven sticks. The weights were TOTALLY off for all of them. I can't recall if the pairs themselves were even, but throwing them in my stick holder, it'll take me 10 tries to find 2 sticks that are remotely close to each other. This may be a bad batch, but man these are out right unusable for me.

    Comments about Vater Hickory Drumsticks Prepack:

    I have used these sticks for around 2 years and I love the feel and durability. I would say these are some of the best 5A sticks you can get for the price. I like that you can find very great deals on them when you buy like 4 pairs. I personally usually use these sticks for both small gigs and all practicing. Sticks really are a opinion thing when it comes to sound so I would recommend buying 1 pair and trying them out. Overall, it's a great stick.

          well my Vater's have hung out very well as an aggresive drummer. If you are losing sticks to damage reconfigure your cymbals a bit. Or just get used to the fact that sticks are the cost of doing business.

            Comments about Vater Hickory Drumsticks Prepack:

            I have been using vater sticks, specifically this pack for years. Overall the experience has been positive. They come at a great price and most commonly hold up for many hours. But I do seem to find that with every other pack there are atleast two pairs that are either different timbre or just dead sticks that break after a few rimshots or minimal use. I have had one nightmare experience where I was playing a gig and pulled out a fresh pair right from the sleeve and within 12 measures it fractures from the taper to the tip leaving me a spear. I go to grab another pair only to have it happen again moments later. It was embarassing to say the least but that was the only time anything like that has occurred.
