of course, there's no such thing as it is totally subjective. However, I will say this: they're about as perfectly balanced as a factory item can be. I primarily play funk/jazz/r&b on a studio/fusion/maple kit using evans G2 coated tom heads, tuned somewhat tight and balanced at tonal interval; a very musical set-up. Additionally, I utilize the traditional grip and these babies are a delight; quick, true and even. Concerning longevity, I get into the rims a lot and have noticed no excessive wear as a result. Nonetheless, I doubt they would suffice for heavy hitters as they are definitely light weight but if you're a more modulated, expressive player these might be for you. Think of them as the equivalent of a painter's fine, natural bristle brushes and go on and paint your masterpiece.

After playing 4 hours with these sticks, and switching them from hand to hand to help with consistent wear, one already has some major duck-tails going on in the center. It will probably break in half on my next 2 hour set like every other hickory drum stick ever made. They look cool, people talk well about them, but when it comes to crunch time you're better off buying some cheaper 5a's or something. In my personal opinion, not worth the 8 bucks.

Comments about Vic Firth Dave Weckl Evolution Signature Drumsticks:

The Dave Weckl sticks are amazing. They are thick enough to hold up to a pounding, and durable enough to stand a beating over time. They are a solid stick that is also light enough not to compromise any quickness or agility. Overall a worthwhile investment...also check out the Steve Gadd sticks.

These sticks are light and hard. They're perfect for any style of music. I've used them for anything from hardcore to alternative to jazz to funk. They are all around amazing.

Comments about Vic Firth Dave Weckl Evolution Signature Drumsticks:

besides what everyone has been saying about breaking really easy they seamed to last a long time for me I received mine from my drum teacher who had been using them for months you couldn't even see the brownish color anymore it was cracked in many places and completely jacked up. he gave them to me and they lasted me a good 2 weeks and worked great sound great and I just bought another pair today as well as the vic firth hikory american classic witch are great as well.

Excellent sticks

By mnied

from Bay Area, CA

Comments about Vic Firth Dave Weckl Evolution Signature Drumsticks:

The Dave Weckl Signature sticks are as good a pair of sticks as the man they're named for is a drummer. I first picked these up a little over a year ago, after playing VF 5a's and Gadd signatures. These sticks are light, quick, and powerful, giving punch and speed on toms but still retaining a tremendous control and feel for cymbals and snarework. I have also yet to break a single one of these sticks, being a full time student majoring in music with a focus on jazz and a love of funk and rock. My only complaint is that the polish on the sticks makes them more prone to slipping out of sweaty hands, so if you sweat easily (I tend not to) maybe choose a non-coated stick instead.

Great, but Not

By Sean-CcM7F

from Worcester, MA

Comments about Vic Firth Dave Weckl Evolution Signature Drumsticks:

I'll start off by saying that I absolutely love playing with these sticks. They have a great feel, and help create the best sounds i've heard out of my cymbals yet.Unfortunately, they don't seem to last long. The older style.. i would get this very strange break pattern, as if the tip was yanked straight outwards... I did this to 2 sticks, one from each pair, within a week, each. Then i had a pair left over, and eventually they broke normally.I got this pair today, I guess the newer design? Either way, I was running late to band practice, and grabbed these, i love how they play. Well, about halfway through the first song, one of them split, while playing a swing ostinato on the ride cymbal. Nothing hard, just split right down the middle. The other one lasted the rest of the night..These are great sticks to play with... but they break very easily.

Great sticks

By seed15man

from Arizona

Comments about Vic Firth Dave Weckl Evolution Signature Drumsticks:

These sticks are great for the drumset. They will not break unless you abuse them. I would recommend buying the nylon because the wood tips do seem to chip very quickly. But overall it is great. Has the feel of a 5B but without the weight, and the tip is excellent. Very good stick.

Good...

By Anonymous

Comments about Vic Firth Dave Weckl Evolution Signature Drumsticks:

I bought a pair of these sticks last year and they have lasted me until now. I still have them, and they aren't broken, but the tips are ground down. I bought a new pair and they broke on the second practice. That same thing happened to my friend. What happened to these sticks? I love the feel in my hand, so they are good if you like to buy sticks every few practices.

I thought they were very decent sticks
Not Bad sticks at all, they felt pretty good in my hands. The Finish was really shiny and made it easy to play with. Would Recomend to a person NOT playing harder music.
they didn't last as long as expected....
Ok

Comments about Vic Firth Dave Weckl Evolution Signature Drumsticks:

These are great except I think they are a little too soft, they are really light so when yu are doing a drum fill you'll be able to do it real fast.
