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...

    Comments about Vic Firth Nova Hickory Drumsticks:

    I'm a new drummer (one of those many guitar players with too much free time) and these were a perfect, cheap way to try some different sticks out. Solid quality, at least for practicing purposes, with consistent weight and balance.

        Comments about Vic Firth Nova Hickory Drumsticks:

        To me, these sticks feel perfectly fine. What makes them even better is the price. Some people have made comments that they can leave black marks on their heads, but I have not experienced this yet, and c'mon, do you own the drums to look good or to make music?

            I only purchased one pair to try them out. They seem to be denser, and balanced differently than the American Classics that I'm used to. I'm not sure about how long they will last. These sticks may be fine for some, but they are not for me.

            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.
