        Comments about Vic Firth American Custom SD1 General Drum Sticks:

        First off... I never write reviews, but this stick is totally worth it.

        Before discovering the SD1 my go-to stick was the VF X5B (acorn wood tip) for as long as i can remember. Its a very solid stick. Now, I am just about finished with my last brick of X5B's so I decided to see what else is out there before dropping another hundred bones on sticks. After trying a variety of sticks from a variety of manufactures I stumbled across these. They kinda have the thickness and length of a Vater "Rock" stick but with the weight of an 5B. These sticks are also extremely well balanced both tonally and physically.

        I am currently using these in a rock/grunge project and they sound, feel, and look great. The only bad thing i have to say about this stick (and most VF sticks) is the large black VF logo that sits above your hand. i just think it's tacky. other than that the SD1 stick, in my opinion, is the most uniquely balanced and comfortable stick I've used in a long while.

              Comments about Vic Firth American Custom SD1 General Drum Sticks:

              I use these as my everyday sticks (full kit, Hardcore band). Just try 'em. These are a 1/2" shorter than 'Vinnie Paul' Vic Firths, but have a ball tip, and are really light. Rock Maple is obviously not as strong (hard) as hickory, but they wear well, chip less (dent), and have a very slight amount of flex (could be my imagination). I've never broken one, just wear them out with my sloppy hi-hat usage & rim shots. If you like bigger sticks (.630" Dia) but not the weight, try these out.

              Bought these drumsticks for my son. He plays for our church and is neither a beginner nor a professional . These sticks cost twice as much at local music store. They arrived in a few data and look to be of good quality We've purchased from MF before and will continue yj shop here in the future

                  i am not a marching drummer. or an orchestral percussionist. i play rock and puck rock. these are the only sticks i will ever use. when i hold them, i feel like harry potter when he first held his wand in ollivanders.

                      I still use a pair of these that i got in 6th grade because they have never broken. I even used them during our marching seasons for practice.

                      They are Weapons of Mass-percussion!
