      Comments about Vic Firth Steve Gadd Signature Drumsticks:

      As with all sticks these days,the better the price, the better the value. Most products are right in there.
      I have been using the Gadd sticks for years. The tip design is my favorite for cymbal sound. The diameter of the stick and the overall weight is great for me; generally speaking.

      One thing that bothers me is Firth's seemingly inability to get the overall weight of the Gadd stick to be more consistant. It's all over the map and is a bit irritating especially when they are TOO HEAVY!!
      I wrote them about it but received no response. Oh well......

      Another stick I have grown fond of is the ProMark Todd Suchermann model. Made of maple, it is meaty but lighter and plays beautifully.

        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...

                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.

                    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.

                        These sticks are the best-balanced, most consistent quality sticks I've ever used. On my 4th pair now. Love them for rock, blues, even ballads where possible. Very solid click when it's time for that. Never concerned which one is in which hand, and they wear well (except when the other guy plays...). Would recommend to novice or pro, for anything louder than your living room.
