This is a great product for a player who plays just about every style of music, although for metal you would want something a little heavier than this. I've used both the nylon tip and regular wooden tips. The nylon tips do a great job of bringing out a brighter cymbal stike. The grip on the sticks are effective as long as you don't hold on TOO tight where your hands get sweaty. And I've taken these to The House of Blues in Dallas, the Dallas Music Fest, and numerous local venues around central Texas. Great sticks for a great value.

If you're looking for a good grip, this is not the stick you want. I have a big problem with sticks slipping when I play for a while.. I normally buy Vater grip tape which works great, but decided to give these a try just to see if the grip works... IT DOESN'T... They were actually more slippery than just wood by itself. Look elsewhere if you need a better grip and don't waste money on these.

Not Very Good

By Samuel Chiu

from New Hampshire

See all my reviews

Comments about Vic Firth American Classic Vic Grip Hickory Drumsticks:

These drum sticks are not very good. I just recently started playing drums so I don't know if I am playing right, I could be hitting too hard, but the wood dents easily. It could just be the way I am hitting, and how I hit though. I do know though, that the grip is not very effective unless your hands are sweaty. The grip tears easily too, which I was really upset by.

Don't Buy

Comments about Vic Firth American Classic Vic Grip Hickory Drumsticks:

The grip seems good at first but once your hands get sweaty, it actually makes the sticks more slippery than regular non gripped sticks. Just buy regular American Classic sticks.

        My previous go-to stick was a Zildjian DIP. I decided I wanted a slightly lighter stick and took a chance on these guys. I'm really pleased with them. They don't seem to warm up and get truly grippy, quite as fast as my Zildjians do, however, so far, the grip feels like it may be more durable than the Z's dip. I wear through the dip quickly and have to respray them. Doesn't seem like I'll have to do that with these guys.

            Sticks are great, should probably buy 3 or 4 sets up front lol. The grip was just what I was looking for, but it came off after a month of practicing lol. I will buy more, just wish the grip would adhere longer, oh well.

              The red color/dye comes off in your hands, and it is very sticky. Should you get it on your clothes or drums, it is very nearly impossible to remove.
