BEST DRUMSTICKS EVER

Comments about Vic Firth Ahmir Questlove Thompson Signature Drumsticks:

ok, first of all, the 17 inches in length are what really make them stand out.. they play extremely well for jazz, as well as funk and rock. the vic grip is a nice touch, and a big help to sweaty handed players like myself. i like the extra long taper as well. if musicians friend ever discontinues this stick, i dont know if i will ever find one quite like it. get them.

    Comments about Vic Firth Ahmir Questlove Thompson Signature Drumsticks:

    Great pair of sticks. I play in a jazz band and needed a lighter pair of sticks that weren't too short. These sticks are perfect for it. There was a small defect in the grip but Musicians Friend is sending me a new set free. These a definitely my favorite pair of sticks and I'll use them for a long time.

        If you're heavy handed, these are NOT for you. If you want a light touch with a little pop......these are a great stick to use, especially if you're playing in a small venue.

        Great Light stick with plenty of length, sounds great clicked together. Very nice sounding on cymbals. Holds up well, despite the .520 Diameter.I would buy more if in Stock.

        My Perfect Stick

        Comments about Vic Firth Ahmir Questlove Thompson Signature Drumsticks:

        Overall these are my favorite sticks ive ever played or bought. And ive bought ALOT of sticks. I love longer drumsticks so I tried these and Im very very glad I did. The balance and weight of these sticks are truely remarkable. I love the tip as well, its not to big or to small. Wish they had them in nylon tip, then they would be the best stick ever made. I only use these and the Vic Firth Steve Jordan's, which are also amazing sticks but nothing ive played comes close to these drumsticks. Especially if you wear gloves then they are even better, since the vic grip really lets you control the stick. Seriously dont hesitate, buy these drumsticks and you will be forever grateful you did.
        A 17 inch stick with Vic Non Slip Coating and a perfect tip. Awesome
        For having a small .520 diameter these sticks are solid and dont break as easy as you would think.
        They are a little pricey but to me they are well worth it. Especially since I use them on mesh heads on my Roland Drum kit. As long as I dont smack the rims to hard, drumstick last me a very long time. Compared to someone playing on an acoustic kit.

        Comments about Vic Firth Ahmir Questlove Thompson Signature Drumsticks:

        I gave this stick 4 stars because if your a heavy hitter and don't use dynamics, this stick might not last to long for you because of its thin taper. It's great on electronic drums, and the extra length is awesome. I will buy more!

          Comments about Vic Firth Ahmir Questlove Thompson Signature Drumsticks:

          I love the feeling of these sticks. They have very interesting tip, so small acorn. Beautiful cymbal sound and even practice pad sounds better;) I'm in love with my Vic's Abe Laborial Sig sticks and these are their thinner brother, I think. Nice rebound, cool look. This is my first model with Vic Grip and I like the feeling of it. Very strong grip, a little bit sticky. The quality of sticks is hands down, as usually quality of Vic's sticks. I recommend it to everyone for any style of music.

            So, I am at a jam the other night, and a fellow drummer picks up my Questlove's and compliments them. HI said they are great for slower songs and working the ride. He then proceeds to play a rock song with an upbeat tempo. I was watching him, fully expecting the sticks to break! The tips were not even damaged!

              gives some vibration in the hands, little different but very cool sticks. great for more jazz or lighter rock, alternative since they are a bit skinny. very good grip though.

                  Comments about Vic Firth Ahmir Questlove Thompson Signature Drumsticks:

                  I play in a community swing band of about 25 people including singers, a really loud trumpet section (c'mon guys!) and amplified guitar, bass and keyboards. Even though a little on the light side, these sticks are capable of cutting through the volume of the other instruments. They are easy to grip and the extra length helps conserve motion while playing. The tips are wood but still provide a bright sound and great cymbal articulation. My daughter bought my first pair as a birthday present and I liked them so much I bought two more. For the type of music I am playing now I will continue to replace these as they wear out. I hope they remain available in the future.
