    Just recently received the long awaited Timbales these are used on. Nice style, design, & feel. Durability is an unknown factor at this point. This brand has a well deserved reputation.

      I am new to the timbales. I like thicker sticks. These fit the bill well.

      Comments about Vic Firth Alex Acuna Conquistador Timbale Sticks:

      I play timbales in a cuban band, and I use the sticks on the cowbells and cascara (the metal side of the timbales) a lot, that's why durability is an issue, I didn't expect them to last longer, but this sticks are amazing considering the thickness.
      I'm pretty happy with the price, and after trying other brands, I consider these to be and excellent choice, no matter if your a beginner or a pro musician. I bought the all natural finish, the ones with the red coating leave a few red stains on my timbales heads.

      more ring, less ping.

          Comments about Vic Firth Alex Acuna Conquistador Timbale Sticks:

          I wanted sticks that I could use on the kit and the timbales. These are great for both. They're shorter and thinner than TMB1s. The Conquistadors are similar in length to SDs and AJs, but noticeably thinner at the grip. That doesn't bother me, but i thought it worth mentioning. I had previously used the red coated version, but I find the clear coated ones easier to grip and more aesthetically pleasing. The red ones also marked up the snare when cross-sticking. The conquistadors ring more on the snare than beaded sticks and the cymbals won't ping the same, so this might be a downside for some. If you play a lot of rim shots and cross-stick, well, being timbale sticks, they're great for that. They're also great on bells and blocks and stuff like that. For me, Conquistadors are a great all around stick for lots of percussion.

          Alex Acuna Conquistador Timbale Sticks for shime daiko

          By Les Von Losberg

          from Sleepy Hollow, NY

          Comments about Vic Firth Alex Acuna Conquistador Timbale Sticks:

          These sticks are hard wood and sturdy enough for my needs. A bargain at the price.
          I purchased theseAlex Acuna Conquistador Timbale Sticks to play shime daiko (small drum for base beat and solos) in a taiko ensemble group I play with. They're light and sturdy.
          The sticks are well-crafted.
          At this price, it's easy to purchase multiple pairs, which I did sight unseen.

          Good Value, Decent Stick

          By Yesterday's Heroes Drums

          from Lowell MA

          Comments about Vic Firth Alex Acuna Conquistador Timbale Sticks:

          These sticks are pretty decent. They're made for Timbale so when you play on a kit you get a Ping from the snare drum. I don't recommend them for the Ride cymbal either. If you like the heavy PING but all means they're perfect. I bought them and I mess around with them here and there. They're great for world drumming and Latin drumming. I don't recommend them if you are strictly a rock drummer, but give them a try! For a price like that you can't go wrong!

          great deal!!

          Comments about Vic Firth Alex Acuna Conquistador Timbale Sticks:

          I play Heavy Metal and I'm sure all of you know that that goes hand-in-hand with using double-butted sticks. When I realized that I needed lighter sticks than what I normally used, I found these babies and they work great on my drumset. They're awesome because they give a nice loud sound just like any other double-butted stick, and they are a lot less damaging to your heads. These sticks are also very light so it doesn't slow down you playing at all, and they have GREAT ride definition. The only problem is that they break after two or three months, so I suggest you buy two or three pairs if you hit hard, like me. For the price, what thinking is there to do?

          Good and Bad

          By Anonymous

          from Undisclosed

          Comments about Vic Firth Alex Acuna Conquistador Timbale Sticks:

          these are very good sticks for an electric drumset, they are very lightweight, making it easy to do rolls and do faster beats, but sometimes i will hold these sticks and get cramps in my hand because they are so small. but overall, i beleive that these are very good drum sticks.
