      Comments about Vic Firth American Custom SD1 General Drum Sticks:

      I use these as my everyday sticks (full kit, Hardcore band). Just try 'em. These are a 1/2" shorter than 'Vinnie Paul' Vic Firths, but have a ball tip, and are really light. Rock Maple is obviously not as strong (hard) as hickory, but they wear well, chip less (dent), and have a very slight amount of flex (could be my imagination). I've never broken one, just wear them out with my sloppy hi-hat usage & rim shots. If you like bigger sticks (.630" Dia) but not the weight, try these out.

      Comments about Vic Firth American Custom SD1 General Drum Sticks:

      Bought these drumsticks for my son. He plays for our church and is neither a beginner nor a professional . These sticks cost twice as much at local music store. They arrived in a few data and look to be of good quality We've purchased from MF before and will continue yj shop here in the future

              I still use a pair of these that i got in 6th grade because they have never broken. I even used them during our marching seasons for practice.

              They are Weapons of Mass-percussion!

              The Best

              By 

              from Virginia

              Comments about Vic Firth American Custom SD1 General Drum Sticks:

              These sticks the best option for students. They are highly durable, I had the same pair throughout middle school. I wouldn't exactly recommend for drum set, but works great for snare and is thick enough to be used for cowbell, temple blocks, and other common percussion instruments.

              I am an amatuer drummer and have only drummued for about a year, but I love these sticks. My advice to anyone, buy theses sticks.

              LOVE THESE STICKS!

              By 

              from Michigan

              Comments about Vic Firth American Custom SD1 General Drum Sticks:

              First started using these back in High School, mainly for snare drum in Concert Band. Since then I've incorporated them into my set playing and these are really my favorite sticks to play with. I can't stand how light sticks break so easily and don't feel like I'm really hitting the drums with anything. With these, they're nice and thick and really hit hard, which is nice when you're playing a lot of metal/heavier beats. If you're playing Jazz or any form of light, pianissimo-esque music on a set then you may as well hit that back button on your internet browser and look for another set of sticks. These are great for dynamic snare, and heavy set playing, though. Love them, love them, love them. Only sticks I ever buy anymore!
