Drum sticks

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about Vic Firth SD4 American Custom Combo Drumsticks:

These sticks are great for jazz/swing or light rock. I have used them for 2 years now. I have never had a stick break during light playing situations, but for harder edge music such as rock or blues I do not recommend them (They will break!). They are extremely light and will not provide the volume needed for distorted guitars or stand up to the abuse that louder music requires unless you have excellent aim (don't crack the snare on the rim).

Comments about Vic Firth SD4 American Custom Combo Drumsticks:

the vic firth sd4 drumsticks are great. i have used them on the drumset and they sound good on cymbals and do not chip or get big slashes when you hit cymbals. when playing just on a snare such as in a concert band they produce a good sound and have a good balance that lets you play fast

Great for electronic drums!

By Genodrums67

from Elk Grove, CA

Comments about Vic Firth SD4 American Custom Combo Drumsticks:

While I have used these sticks in many different musical situations, I have been using SD4's, for years now, on electronic drums. They have the perfect weight, feel, and there is no need to beat up your e-drums with anything bigger.

    Comments about Vic Firth SD4 American Custom Combo Drumsticks:

    I prefer maple sticks. They are lighter. These are a great go to stick for all applications. I tend to cut 3/4 inch off mine but most people will like the length.

      Comments about Vic Firth SD4 American Custom Combo Drumsticks:

      I like Vic Firth sticks and mallets and I especially like maple sticks. Essentially I use AH7A, SD4 Combo and SD 1 General sticks. Depends on the gig. I mostly alternate between AH7A and SD4 Combo for drum set and will use SD 1 for concert work. The maple allows me to have some diameter while retaining lightness which I find important for touch, feel and controlling dynamics. The barrel tip on the SD4 Combo works well for jazz and especially pop or contemporary music. I frequently work with another professional percussionist who decided to use the SD4 Combo for everything. A while back I bought and tried about every stick from all the major stick manufacturers. The Vic Firth SD4 Combo works very well for me.

          Comments about Vic Firth SD4 American Custom Combo Drumsticks:

          In the old days at Frank Ippolito's Professional Drum Center in NYC (Papa Jo Jones: Billie Holiday & Count Basie's drummer would greet you at the door with Frank... also the teachers at the time were Elvin Jones, Norman Grossman, Jim Chapin, & Horace Arnold), you requested a drum stick, and then you rolled it on Frank's counter top to see if the stick was defective (warped and not a good sound). You had to go through quite a number of sticks to find the good ones, and now with Vic Firth's SD4, you always get a perfectly rounded and good sounding pair.

            from Imperial Beach, CA

            Comments about Vic Firth SD4 American Custom Combo Drumsticks:

            I've used many different style sticks over the last 45 plus yrs of playing but these have a great feel, consistantly good balance and weight and just the length I want when reaching. The tips do wear out, but all wood tips eventually do, so not an issue for me. I don't use them for playing harder with blues or rock but for everything else I do, they're perfect.

            These are the only sticks I have and the only sticks I will ever buy. They are so light but so strong! I have had the same pair of sticks for 2 years and they are still intact. I highly recommend these sticks for your drumming needs!

            Light But Solid

            By Psalm 9110

            from San Antonio, Tx

            Comments about Vic Firth SD4 American Custom Combo Drumsticks:

            I got a pair from my brother and I was impressed with the speed at which I could play at using these as compared to my 5A's, They also have a good solid sound not light at all. The only thing is they splinter instead of just shave down.

            Comments about Vic Firth SD4 American Custom Combo Drumsticks:

            Very good light feel, great for speed, but fragile. I had these sticks for two whole days before one shattered at the shoulder. I don't play hard at all in and performed not a single rim shot within these two days. Just consider that when buying if you hit hard at all.

            Comments about Vic Firth SD4 American Custom Combo Drumsticks:

            These are some of the best sticks I've ever had. These are great for anything in volume from low to decently loud. They are light but have excellent balance and feel. They have a great articulate sound too with the nice tone of maple. I use these and recommend them for rock and roll, swing, bop, funk, latin, blues, etc. These are feel good sticks for feel good music.

            These sticks are amazing! They are incredibly light, but still incredibly strong. Get the WOODEN TIP- it sounds better and is stronger!I will use these sticks forever!!!
