I tried these a while back and was a little disappointed because the tips chipped out almost immediately. After trying out a few more models close to these, I decided to try them again. This is a good middle of the road stick that is suited well for some Jazz contexts,Big Band and Rock. However, I would not use these for Small Combo Jazz work or extremely heavy Rock. They are just a touch too heavy for small group settings and too light for heavy playing. They are essentially a long 5A with white paint.Balance is very good and they seem to be holding up well this time around.

I have been playing with these sticks for a numberof years, but for that last couple of years they have been breaking real easy (Nylon tip)and the weight and pitch is very inconsistent. So I am forced to find an alternative mfg.

    I bought these for the first time about 2 months ago. They are sick. I play fast street punk and these guys take a beating without comprimising any quality what-so-ever.

    Good feel to them

    Comments about Vic Firth Jack DeJohnette Signature Drumsticks:

    I only wish they sold this kind of drumstick in a non signature format, because then I could get it cheaper. This drumstick is like the 5A except a little longer. It is not awkward however. It is very good for doing 16ths on the hat and ride because it is very snappy in your wrist. Unfortunately I don't get to use them when playing live because they are to loud and overpower the band. If you want the same idea but smaller and quieter, go with the Vic Firth SD4 Combo stick.

        Comments about Vic Firth Jack DeJohnette Signature Drumsticks:

        I've been spoiled by the Glenn Kotche Active Wave 570 sticks, which are 16 & 3/4" and a wee bit heavy. They work superbly for me. The Jack De Johnette signature sticks are just a little too short and a little too light for my purposes. I can adapt to them, but I miss the feel of the Kotche Active Wave sticks. I have very large hands, & the Kotche sticks give me an ideal stick bounce. Obviously, the De Johnette sticks would be terrific for someone a few glove sizes smaller than me. They're conventional sticks, whereas the Kotche sticks are unusual in design. Drummers do get very particular, don't they? The De Johnette sticks are perfectly fine, ideal for a singly ply head, and rate an A, ok? Cheers.

          Great rebound on this stick. Perfect for practicing or playing in most jazz, big band, or rock settings.

            I bought these a few days ago and they are amazing!!! They are good for ANY style. They are slightly heavier and longer they feel like a 5a with a 5b heaviness! Great sticks buy them!

            Comments about Vic Firth Jack DeJohnette Signature Drumsticks:

            These sticks are the best you can buy if your a Jazz/Soul/Funk/Reggae drummer...pretty much anything but rock! I only say that because they are 5A's so they are thin so heavy playing wears them down a lot. But the Reach is Key, a longer stick in my opinion is easier to use. Jack is the Man!!

            Comments about Vic Firth Jack DeJohnette Signature Drumsticks:

            These along with the Vic Firth Extreme 5A's are my favorite drum sticks. The extra reach is great and you can move fast with these. Not just for fusion & jazz, I play pop/R&B with them a lot. The only thing I don't like is the annoying white paint that comes off if you hit the rims too much. Overall, recommended if you are looking for a stick with extra reach. Slightly heavier/thicker than the X5As.
