I got a pair of these sticks about 4 years ago and still have them. I got them when I played a lot more back in high school and they stood up to the abuse pretty well. They do chip and splinter, but you can make these last awhile. They do have a chance of leaving black or red, (depending on what color you get), marks behind as you play. These sticks worked great for me, but I have noticed others having a lot of trouble with them. I would suggest at least trying them out and seeing if you like them.

These are budget quality sticks- NOT just renamed blemished Vic Firths. They have different paint, different tip shape, and most crucially, different taper: the 5B model's is a much shorter & more abrupt taper- making them front heavy compared to Vic Firth 5B sticks. Not bad- but not a deal on real Vic Firths...

I got these for my son for becoming captian in school band. We are living in Panama for the last 10 years and have used countless sticks. It rained today durning the NATIONAL parade in front of the president. The sticks bled color and turned his hads and shirt RED.

        Use them any time i'm playing. I like them better than the regular Vic Firth 5A, but each drummer is different. Everyone's body is different so they may or may not work for you! If you are a 5A drummer i recommend them!

          Comments about Vic Firth Nova Hickory Drumsticks:

          These sticks definitely do their job, but they begin to show signs of wear immediatly. They won't last any longer than any regular set, but they're great for practice or to keep for a back up in case you break a stick at a show.

              I gave my 5 year old nephew a brand new pair of these drum sticks to mess around with. He pounded the concrete sidewalk for half an hour with these drum sticks, and the tips held up. He's a very destructive boy suffering from A.D.H.D., so you get the picture.
