OVERVIEW

Great for electronic drum pads too!

These Zildjian drumsticks are a consistent favorite for its medium sized dimensions and teardrop bead. Developed in conjunction with noted vibration authority, Sims Vibration Laboratory, Zildjian Anti-Vibe Drumsticks contain a patented feature that effectively reduces key vibrations. By reducing the amount of vibration present in the struck stick, the Anti-Vibe drumstick is easier to play and more comfortable for many players, than standard sticks. The stick maintains it's conventional lacquer finish and appearance, while the vibration absorption technology is contained out of the way, inside the butt-end of the stick.

Anti-Vibe drumsticks are also great for use on rubber electronic drum pads and practice pads due to the vibration caused by these impact surfaces. the stick feels like you are hitting its sweet spot on every stroke.

Being recently diagnosed with CTS I am a sad camper. I decided to try these sticks out and have seen about a 25% IMPROVEMENT of not getting numb during shows or afterwards. The rest has to do with technique, bracing myself, and warming up.

Unfortunately when they break, they break. At $10+ a pair that gets expensive and usually I can only get 2-3 gigs out of them before they are toast. I often add electrical tape around the stick or grab some stick wrap for extra protection and shock absorption. It takes time to get used to the hardened exterior and the light weight of the core but after awhile it becomes second nature. Do I like the feel as good as standard 5A hickory? No. But I do what I have to, to help with my condition.

Take care of your hands!! I can't stress this enough! Warm up, use proper stick technique, and take adequate breaks! Drink enough water to hydrate your body! If you are having issues, remember to take Ibuprofen before AND after shows or practices. 800mg. And ice AFTER, not BEFORE you play. This will allow your muscles and nerves to properly heal and rest. Happy drumming!

I have never used drum sticks as bad as these. Never mind the rubber plug falling out I couldn't use them long enough to see how the durability is. These sticks are great if you don't want to know you are even hitting the drums. They reduce the vibration so much they don't even rebound off the drum head. I can see where these would be a value to someone who's hands can't handle the constant vibration.

Fantastic feel and control

By Kenny B

Comments about Zildjian Anti-Vibe Drumsticks:

I have not had any bad experience with these sticks. The rubber plugs are not falling out. The playing time is no longer shortened by forearm pain. I feel that I am playing an acoustic set with these sticks and it really sounds like it. The sonic results are very natural. Of course, it helps that the set has Roland samples.
I have used rotational balanced sticks (hard to find). RB's are great for acoustic drums, but hard to use with pads. I now have a Roland V-rums compact set. The snare is mesh, but the toms are rubber pads. I had a hard time playing fills with the pads. These sticks allow me to strike the V-drums with the same resultant feel as RB's on acoustics. Better still, the weight distribution allows for better articulation playing ghost notes on the snare and better buzz rolls. The sensitivity of the playing is now the same or sometimes better than with acoustic drums.
excellent balance of the two sticks in the pair. I wish the tips were nylon. They are wood and very small which may lead to more rapid wear. Time will tell.....
A bit on the expensive side, but worth it for the advantages listed above.

      Really nice sticks that really do reduce vibration. Excellent for use with an electronic set even if you have mesh heads. They feel very precise and still reduce vibrations. Overall adds to the realism of the experience.

        Comments about Zildjian Anti-Vibe Drumsticks:

        These sticks reduce shock and vibration considerably. I play on a Roland TD-30kv about 70% of the time and I find the mesh pads have more shock and vibration than the acoustic set... so much so that the vibration was really irritating my fingers. These sticks seem to turn the trick and let me play without having to consciously avoid hitting hard. I would recommend these to anyone looking to reduce vibration and I'll be using these from now on. I don't notice any less rebound versus rugula Vic-firth 5Bs, and breakage is a non-issue on an e-kit.

          • For Carpel Tunnel Syndrom
          • For E-kits

          Comments about Zildjian Anti-Vibe Drumsticks:

          When I first saw these I thought they were a gimick, but they very clearly reduce vibration. This is good on electronic kits or practice pads as it take some of the "jar" out of the strike. It also helps keep your chops up when used on a E-kit, and going between that an an acoustic kit(after you've played an E-kit for a while, acoustic drums feel like they absorb the blows. The sticks are also give some relief to flare-ups of carpel tunnel syndrome.

          They are pretty much the diametric opposite of the Ahead aluminum sticks, which are very jarring. If the Aheads are like an aluminum baseball bat, and standard wood sticks are like a wooden baseball bat, these would be like a wooden baseball bat with a rubber insert in it (the most jarring to the least jarring).

          I was surprised to read the review that indicated the rubber inserts fell out. I've never had that happen, and wonder if it was a bad run. If this happens, I suspect that the inserts can be put back in with Gorilla Glue or Barge cement.

              BEST REVIEW HERE: These drumsticks are made with a hollowed out butt with a rubber bead-like strand inside it about 1.5 inches long. The only reason that i know this is because they fell out within the first day. At first i thought these drumsticks would be amazing and ended up buying about 7 pairs.. I play on an electric kit (even less vibration than an acoustic kit) and they do reduce vibration alot but once the rubber bead strand fell out, the vibration of the stick was 10 times worse than a regular drumstick. The rubber fell out of every single drumstick that i had; making them worthless. You can try shoving them back into the butt but they just fall back out almost immediately. It's very noticeable when the rubber falls out also, it gives the stick the sound of a cracked drumstick and you can also feel it. Playing with the drumsticks without the rubber in it is just terrible, I have all 7 pairs where the rubber came out from playing and these are absolutely the worst drumsticks i have ever purchased.

              Comments about Zildjian Anti-Vibe Drumsticks:

              Excellent hickory wood with less shock to my hands. Like i said earlier, i would love to see these dipped as well as the other WONDERFUL dipped sticks that Zildjian makes. Anything that Zildjian makes is Quality ! I use their sticks, cymbals & cymbal case and have been delighted with all their products. Would love to get a set of their ~ A Custom Cybal Set w/ their Mastersound 14" Hi-Hat set to make all my cymbals sound musically great together. It will happen !!!
              I have been using Zildjian drumsticks fo a long time. Until recently, i have been using 5B dipped because they feel wonderful in my hands. I have severe carpal tunnel in both of my hands, and recently had surgery in my left one. This has not stopped me & will not until i can not hold them anymore. So i bought these Ant-Vibe sticks to see if they would help cause they were suggested by my cousin that has been playing for twenty some years. They were AMAZING ! I play in the Worship band at our church "The Bridge", and practice every week in my garage for a few hours. My hands and fingers did not get tingle or get numb the whole time playin, even with a lot of work on my Zildian cymbals. The only thing i would like to see for the sticks, are to have them dipped instead of me wrapping them.
