I like the Vic Firth 1As a lot.
Before these, I was using the Vater 1As, which are generally awesome sticks. After too many curvy Vater "bananas" though, I needed something else with an extra long length and medium-ish heft. The Vic Firths are a good substitute. The relatively bulbous taper wears very well, the tips don't chip as much, and they're consistantly straight. I use them for everything. :)

i have been using these sticks for over 20 years, but this was the first time i've bought them online. they came quickly and looked just fine, but when i played with them, they broke/wore down so quickly, i had to buy more locally. I typically will wear down or break 2 or 3 sticks during a show. with these that i bought online, i went through 3 pair of sticks within 5 songs. terrible wood, some had cracks right out of the packaging and i will never buy them online again.

"Classic" is correct...

By Charlie Wareing

from New Mexico

Comments about Vic Firth American Classic Hickory Drumsticks:

These sticks are beautifully engineered and manufactured to be perfect every time and the only drumsticks you'll ever need. And I just love the little "crisper" sound I get, especially on the Ride, with the Nylon Tips.
The price is very fair - don't even think about it

    Comments about Vic Firth American Classic Hickory Drumsticks:

    I absolutley love these sticks! They seem to be copies of the Tommy Lee Signature Series from many years ago. These sticks are longer than most at 17 inches. The diameter feels like a 2B. They hold up very well for me even with my rimshot backbeat style of playing. Thanks to Musician's Friend for the excellent service!

    decent sticks.

    Comments about Vic Firth American Classic Hickory Drumsticks:

    you can tell that most of the people reviewing these sticks that say they are "the best" are definitely not the most experienced players ever, because these sticks definitely arent. theyre decent for the price at my local music store, but more than that and its just better to get some vaters. the durability is pretty good, they actually LOOK awesome, and the feel is pretty much the best thing about them. i just say spend an extra buck and get some higher quality vaters, but hey, if you like your sticks splintering up on you all the time then be my guest and buy these sticks.

      Comments about Vic Firth American Classic Hickory Drumsticks:

      Great sticks!! I can't think of any other stick brand that is better than Vic firths!! The 5a's are perfect for drum set!! Tey are also heavy enough for snare and practicing. I highly recommend these sticks for beginners and pros alike.

      Comments about Vic Firth American Classic Hickory Drumsticks:

      Ive played with a lot of sticks and so far Vic Firth is the brand i come back to. Ive tried others like promarks, zildjian, and more. but these sticks hold up way better than different brands.
      Theyre cheap, and they do what sticks are supposed to do

      Comments about Vic Firth American Classic Hickory Drumsticks:

      I've been using 7an for quite some time, but needed lighter sticks. I bought 5an believing that the lesser numerial value implied a lighter stick, which isn't the case. 5an is slightly thicker and heavier than a 7an. This should be understood before purchase. No negative comment as to quality.

        Comments about Vic Firth American Classic Hickory Drumsticks:

        I like the Vic Firth 1As a lot.
        Before these, I was using the Vater 1As, which are generally awesome sticks. After too many curvy Vater "bananas" though, I needed something else with an extra long length and medium-ish heft. The Vic Firths are a good substitute. The relatively bulbous taper wears very well, the tips don't chip as much, and they're consistantly straight. I use them for everything. :)

        By ZJ Drummer

        from Highland, Illinois

        Comments about Vic Firth American Classic Hickory Drumsticks:

        I have been drumming for 7 years now and have had good and bad technique. i can say that having good technique makes all the difference with sticks lasting long. i have used pro mark 747, 808. vic firth metaln, 5a, steve gadd signature, 55a, extreme 5an. and used the vic firth Nova 2b and 5bn. since my technique has improved i havent broken a single stick. i used to break one every other day. no matter what the make. i had a microwave box full of broken sticks i called my graveyard. since then i havent even broken a pair of novas'. however. vic firth 55a's are my go to sticks. until George Kollias releases his signature sticks that is.

            Comments about Vic Firth American Classic Hickory Drumsticks:

            In short, these work. 5B is the right one for me most of the time, but I use other sizes, most often lighter, sometimes. There is one point where these fell short in a minor way. The label is evidently put on by machine, so care is not taken to the label placement with respect to the grain of the wood. You probably want to put a permanent mark on top of the grain for your own use. Nevertheless, Vic Firth makes a quality stick. Why have you not bought yours yet? It does not cost much to try out different sticks, just be sure this is one you try. I think it will become your standard.

              I personally use the 55A model. The sticks provide the versatility of a regular 5A and the attack of a pair of 5B sticks. These are the perfect sticks for me personally. I would recommend these sticks to anyone in any model be it the lightest sticks to the sticks suited for heavier styles.

              Ok, so, i have been playing for just over a year now and vic firth is so far the best out of any other company ive played. my favorite sticks would have to be the Rock Nylons for sure. they have a nice heavy feel to them and , gah, they just sound so good. now interesting-ly enough, the Metal Nylon stick didn't last that long. The MN's seem to be not as strong as the Rock n's. oh and if you want to play the standard Rock sticks and like heavy feel, DONT BUY THE ROCK WOOD'S, THEY ARE CRAZY LIGHT

              Excellent sticks
              Great feel and tip
              Excellent quality wooden tip. I hit the cymbals very hard every day and have had these for a month and the tips have not cracked. Better that any other ones Ive had.
              Cheap. High Quality. Great Value.

              These are great drumsticks. They are well balenced and very confertable. I play the same pair almost every day for the past two months and they still have a lot of life in them.

              Love these sticks
              I got 5A's, Love these sticks, and musiciansfriend price is awesome! Not to small, not to big, and last looooooong!
              They last so long, I tried some ProMark sticks becuase my friend said they were the best, but those ones the tips fell apart within the first 2hours of using, whereas these I have had a pair last almost a year and still have a solid tip.
              The price here is well worth it!

              These are the ratings i would give the wood tips because they broke the second day, but i love the feel and weight to them. but i usually play with nylon so i'm sure it would be 10 stars across the board once i get nylon tips.

              Great for any price. They won my loyalty.
              Drum sticks, what else do you need?
              I use the Rock sticks primarily. I play guitar for MY band but when we record I play the drums as well. As a follower of Bonzo I am a loud and forceful player. Mine ussualy break after about 2 weeks. I used the 2BN until a pair broke after 2 days but I still use a pair of ROCK sticks that have been going strong after 8 months. I play drums for another band that plays metal (not my kind of music but I get extended solos) and Ive thrown the same sticks into pools, crowds, walls, and they havnt been broken yet.
              Good value for the price. I would pay a little more for em.

              Comments about Vic Firth American Classic Hickory Drumsticks:

              I am a hobby drummer that is in a few worship bands at my church. I've done some minimal recording for demos with my band and we have done some local shows. I have been play for 3 years and have owned probably 15 different kinds of sticks. I have finally settled on Vic Firth as my brand loyalty, and the American Hickory 7A with wood tips are the best sticks I have ever played. Great response. They are light, allowing you to play fills quicker and with more accuracy with minimal effort. Other sticks wear out your hands, these are like they are made for your hands. They last for freaking ever. The first thing to go is the tips... they start to loose hardness after about 4 months of regular use. but the rest of the stick maintains its integrity for much longer. Best buy for your buck, and Vic Firth's quality can't be beat. Leaves Zildjian sticks in the dust.
