I love the 7a DrumSticks, Im a jazz/r&b/hip-hop drummer and they are very light to perform with. Also I am a big quest love fan, we've actually met a couple of times. But overall these are the best sticks that any musician can use especially if your playing jazz,funk or hip hop.. These sticks sound so good when I use my piccolo snare drum!!!!!
Executive Summary: I recommend this stick for people who prefer light sticks (maple or below 7As),a white finish, want more grip, more projection, and/or more reach without going up to Buddy Rich's.I mainly play SD4s but I wanted something that had a white finish without going up to Buddy Rich's. The extra length is noticable and I had to play with them for a couple hours but gives you the variability to choke up if you need precision or hang back if you are in a pocket. The extra length is also nice if you play traditional grip. Rimclicks are full without flipping over the stick, I can do crazy fills around the kit with the confidence that the sticks are going to stay in my hand, and Vic Firth quality is second to none. After playing with them for a couple months Ahmir 'Questlove' Thompson Signature Drumsticks are my main sticks for every genre.
As soon as I unwrapped these sticks and held them I was astonished. They are absolutely perfect in every way. The bottom half has a rubber coating that adds no weight but increases grip by a ton. The size is similiar to a 7a except twice as long so you get added power and reach with minimal energy. Don't waste your money on crap sticks, these are incredible!
