OVERVIEW

A great choice for drum set multi-percussion or percussion ensemble settings.

These sticks feature a dense felt head. The result is an extremely well balanced stick with a sound that is warmer than a conventional wood tip.

The American Classic line combines tradition and Vic Firth style. With bold designs for fuller sound and deeply back-cut tips for intensified cymbal response, the American Classic drumsticks are turned from select hickory, further enhancing their durability and sound.

      Comments about Vic Firth American Classic Drumsticks with Soft Touch Felt Tip:

      I don't love these, and I really wanted to. The felt tip is white and larger than it looks in the photo, unless they've been redesigned. Problem is, the tone they produce on cymbals is not good, yet it's loud...and they are too loud for my intended purpose of playing quietly.

      While they do offer something different tonaly, I just don't care for it, but that doesn't mean you won't. They are worth a try.

        Comments about Vic Firth American Classic Drumsticks with Soft Touch Felt Tip:

        I don't use this stick very often. But there have been passages that were easier to execute with this stick. The felt tip works on drum heads and you can even produce smooth open and closed rolls. However, they do not work on drum set with cymbals. Totally different timbre unless you want a suspended cymbal effect. I have only used these on snare drum in concert situations.
