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...

Decent Stick

By Josiah Vik

from Poplar, WI

See all my reviews

Comments about Vic Firth Nova Hickory Drumsticks:

These are a decent set of sticks for the price. I got the red ones in 5A and they are very comfortable. The only complaint is that they leave red marks on my cymbals and heads, but i should have figured that. i would suggest the nylon tips to avoid this problem.

Ok not the best

By Drummer21-fnXzx

from Undisclosed

Comments about Vic Firth Nova Hickory Drumsticks:

I bought these to use in a pinch because I went on tour with my band and quickly ran out of sticks from them breaking. These are good for a pinch but not much more than that. If you want something that will last i would recommend getting a little more expensive stick.

Poor Quality Drum Sticks

By Russ

from Raleigh, NC

See all my reviews

Ask me a question

Comments about Vic Firth Nova Hickory Drumsticks:

I do not like the weakness and propensity to break in half early in the life cycle.
I used these drum sticks twice and one of them broke in half. It had a knot right in the center and the stick dissintegrated. How sad. They were so inexpensive, I did not even bother about reporting the issue, but I cannot recommend these sticks.
They broke in the 2nd use.
Great price, but for what?

    Comments about Vic Firth Nova Hickory Drumsticks:

    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.
