I always play Vic Firth 7A sticks. I have 4 of the 5 options available in the 7A size (not interested in the "Vic Grip"). There is a different feel (weight) between Hickory and Maple versions and a different cymbal sound with each stick. The AS7A round tip produces a darker fuller sounds than the tear drop or nylon tip versions. I have used this stick - but I must admit my go to sticks are the Hickory 7A and Maple AH7A.

    Great sticks

    By snowdog

    from Illinois

    Comments about Vic Firth American Sound Hickory Drumsticks:

    These sticks are extremely durable, are nicely balanced, and provide excellent definition. The cymbal sounds given by the round tips are reminiscent of nylon tips. The tips are also very durable. A very well made stick.

    great sticks

    Comments about Vic Firth American Sound Hickory Drumsticks:

    Good sticks all round, and sound great. The grip is just right, so it wont give you blisters, but on the occasional roll or something, like all drumsticks, they might slip out of your hand. but definitely worth it.

    Best stick i've ever used

    By GN1450

    Comments about Vic Firth American Sound Hickory Drumsticks:

    these sticks are the best i have played with. I used the tear drop 5A american classic but i hated the tear drop. The round tip on the American sounds are amazing. they are a little heavier than the american classics but the balance is in the butt of the stick and the balance in general is just perfect.

    These sticks will not disappoint you in 5B, the best part is that they have a round tip so all you have to decide on is diameter and wieght. They are great for band class or for simpilfying your needs!

    5A - What a great sound they produce on drums and cymbals. Great for hard rock to mellow tunes, large or small venues.

    AS5A's

    Comments about Vic Firth American Sound Hickory Drumsticks:

    Wonderful, favorite sticks
    I got the 5A's, also known as AS5A's. Love these, really good for doing rolls, and yet have a medium grip so really quick, and fit well in my hand.
    Relaly strong build, and last long. Only complaints is you need strong drums heads because the round tip will damage thin heads because not as much surface area. But, still these feel better than any other stick, and sound great too
    These are well worth it.
