Comments about Vic Firth Danny Carey Signature Drumsticks:

I've been playing drums professionally for over 25 years and all together for over 35 years, and these are without a doubt one of the best drumsticks on the market. I've tried every signature stick VF makes.. They very comfortable, durable and well balanced. The tapered inset is set perfectly at the balance point of the stick. Don't let the large size fool you. These sticks perform very well at light volumes and are easy to control. They will rock out too if the venue or song requires it. I bounced back and forth between these and the Zildjian Travis Barker model (yes Travis isn't that great but his sticks are awesome) and finally ended up using the DC's full time as the difference in wrist stiffness at the end of a show was greatly reduced using these sticks. This signifies that the stick is doing more work which is what drummers strive for. The teardrop tips sound ridiculous on my Zildjian K heavy ride and intricate sticking details on both snare and toms can be heard easily through the mix. As a bonus, if you have sweaty slippery hands, these sticks will not slide because of the taper in the grip. Easily one of the best performing sticks out there and a far cry better than most signature sticks. If the situation requires minimal volume I just switch to Hotrods, otherwise the DC's are in my hands. BTW, if you break one of these sticks, you either need anger management classes or need to be driving railroad spikes in crossties

    Even though Danny Carey is my favorite drummer, that's not the reason that these sticks are my favorite. The taper at the grip is amazing plus I love the thickness and weight of the stick. Perfect sticks.

    A great Tool

    By Hisco

    Comments about Vic Firth Danny Carey Signature Drumsticks:

    These sticks are incredibly well balanced. They're the best pair of sticks I have used in eight years of playing. I won't play live without them. As mentioned in another review, they do chip quickly and you should expect to replace them every three months if you play an hour or so a day.

    About Me Experienced

    Comments about Vic Firth Danny Carey Signature Drumsticks:

    I WAS NOT PAID FER DIS REVIEW. I use reviews all the time to aid in my buying decisions. So it's only fair that I post a few.....kinda the pay it forward thing. I'm 55 y/o, been playing drums for 43 years, ( by no means does length of time equal skill and ability), I build/repair guitars and acoustic drums and totally love the mad drumming skills of Danny Carey and totally love TOOL. The stick sizes I have used are Vater 7A, 5A, 5B and 2B, and 2 sizes of Vic Firth marching corps sticks. I was playing the Vater 2B until I tried the Danny Carey sticks. The Danny Carey sticks are the closet to perfect I have yet to find; perfect weight, length, balance, wood density and the "finger fitted" area prevents my fingers from drifting up the stick. These sticks are amazingly comfortable and the rebound of the stick, provides an ease of movement never before experienced with another stick. For sure, this is my new favorite stick; in fact, after I tried the first pair, I bought 4 more pairs...............they are sooo worth the price. Just because I've played 43 years doesn't mean I'm any good. Ever notice how bad the drivers in their 80s are...and they've been driving for 60 years. Dunning Kruger effect baby!!!

            Comments about Vic Firth Danny Carey Signature Drumsticks:

            I was browsing signature drumsticks, comparing them to the ones I did use then, Neil Peart Japanese oak, when I noticed something very different about Danny Carey's sticks. They were tapered to fit the hand. I use lots of technique in my playing as well as power when needed an these sticks fit like a natural glove. I let one of my friends use the pair an they stopped mid song to make sure their head was not playing tricks on them :) I'm not switching sticks any time soon. I would encourage anyone to try them, especially during performances. To truly put them an you to the test. Great sticks, great buy an thought up by a great artist.

              I am generally a smaller diameter stick guy. Neil Peart ProMark size. I do have difficulty hanging on to sticks sometimes. I always liked the Trueline sticks of years ago that Danny used. I thought I would give these a try. I really like them. Easy to hang on to with the recess in the handle and the weight is really nice. I am a believer in bigger sticks thanks to these.

              Comments about Vic Firth Danny Carey Signature Drumsticks:

              These sticks bring one thing to mind; balance. the "handle" is much thicker than the shaft, which evens out the weight of the stick to make the tip end feel lighter and easier to control. Even though these sticks are a tad beefy, they do NOT feel it! For fast intricate patterns these will do you wonders, but won't break easy because of their size! I love these sticks!

              Comments about Vic Firth Danny Carey Signature Drumsticks:

              The Signature Series Danny Carey drumsticks provide excellent balance by incorporating an increased width handle. They also provide amazing cymbal response and bounce beautifully due to their "counter-weight" handles. A great stick without a doubt.

              Comments about Vic Firth Danny Carey Signature Drumsticks:

              These sticks have an amazing sound. The scalloped piece on the sticks where your index finger should rest is slightly below the center weight of the stick so you get the best recoil imaginable. You can count on them being precise, especially from a drummer who sets up his kit in line with the setting of the sun with a compass. They do, however, chip really REALLY easily. So if your technique isn't mastered yet, I'd hold off on these for a while.

              This pair of sticks are spectacular! I don't use them on my set. I actually use them just for snare. They are great for snare use only. They are big like marching sticks. I love them. I would buy these any day of the week.

              These sticks feel so good in your hands!!! I know not a lot of people go into shopping for sticks thinking comfort, really, but that is a huge thing when you're playing for a long time. Not only do they fit well in your hands and have incredible balance, but they sound just as good as any other stick I've used. When I play a show I grab up a pair of these sticks and hit the stage. Not as good as AHEAD sticks for the studio, but an incredible stick live!

              Not only is he my favorite drummer, he has the baddest sticks. Powerful, with awesome response, well balanced. The grip is perfect, and they are virtually undestructible. I've been playing the same pair for about 3 months now, and I used to break at least one pair of sticks every time we played. I won't play with any other sticks, period.

              Being a massive Danny Carey fan, chances are I would have bought these sticks even without the great reviews. Since buying them I have had a much more comfortable playing experience. My hands to not tire as easily and the bead really brings the most out of my cymbals.

              Comments about Vic Firth Danny Carey Signature Drumsticks:

              I've used lighter sticks with bouncier response, but those fatigue your hands with excessive vibration, produce thinner tone and break often.The newer Carey's seem to cover all bases though. These too play swiftly and responsively, only they carry some of the burden for you. Additionally, their moderate weight and density minimize vibration fatigue while permitting beefy tone and cutting volume??ideal for playing technical 'rock' un-mic'ed! I wouldn't think that sticks producing thick drum tone would shine as well as these do on cymbals, but again, they deliver.If I never found a better stick, I'd be just fine.
