      Comments about Vic Firth Steve Gadd Signature Drumsticks:

      Musician'sFriend has listed the length of these drumsticks incorrectly. The sticks are 15.75" not 16.50" long. I informed them about this after purchase and they did not seem to care. It caused me to order a different pair of sticks that were seemingly the same length but were actually 0.75" longer. I did not want longer sticks. They didn't seem to care about making their mistake right other than "When they get there call us back and tell us what is wrong...". I already told them what was wrong.... But don't get me wrong, the Gadd sticks are great, they are my go-to stick. Unfortunately MF needs to get their info right.

        Comments about Vic Firth Steve Gadd Signature Drumsticks:

        These sticks are lasting very well at work, playing any style of music.. I adapt pretty quickly to the slightly shorter length.. There is a beefy, stoutness to these sticks because of that slight shortness.. I have pretty long arms, so I adjust my reach automatically, it seems. I think also there is a bit more feeling-connection between my body and the surface I am hitting with this stick which can help with the overall groove; approaching a hand drummer feel on the drum set.. The wood tips have good definition on the cymbals.. The black coating is cool and when it starts wearing off, can show you where the splintering is happening.. It might defeat the purpose, but I would be interested to try a slightly longer version of this same model, if possible...

              Comments about Vic Firth Steve Gadd Signature Drumsticks:

              I have been using these STEVE GADD signature Vic Firth sticks for about 4 years now... I changed to these from a Regal Tip 5B and find that the STEVE GADD sticks are better balanced and it seems that I get better sound from my whole kit with them.. I have found the sticks that I will be using from now on.. Thank you Vic Firth for providing such a quality Stick at a good price.

                      I never break sticks but wear out the shoulders through cymbal use. This stick lasts much longer and maintains it's integrity better than any other sticks I've ever played. Plus, Steve Gadd is one of my drum heroes.

                          These are great sticks! I usually play 7A's and these are just a little bigger. They have a larger tip which adds punch to the toms, and louder pings on the ride. Just might be my stick of choise right now.

                          I would like to see them in a natural finish because as time goes on, they kinda look weird with the pant chipping off.

                          These sticks are great. I love the weight and balance. The heads are small and seem to create their own bounce. The black paint wears rather quickly but no breakage as yet. I really like most of the VF products but really enjoy these.

                          The barrel heads on these things are the reason I love them and the reason I hate them.

                          They give a really unique sounding hit that I can't get out of any other stick but the heads chip SO FAST!

                          I recommend using nylons for practice (though they sound awful) and saving your wooden tips for gigs, or you may go broke.
