      Just Ok..read on

      Comments about Vater Acoustick Sticks:

      Ok I've used Hot Rods and Cool Rods which actually have great response and volume control, but wear out, splinter and ultimately break at inopportune times..Saw these at GC and thought the price was reasonable and the construction looked very solid. I dont normally use Vater products but thought these actually looked like they were made to last.First the good: These sticks will take a beating and are very durable even with semi hard strokes. The nylon sheathing around the wood dowels does an excellent job of keeping them from splinttering. The adjustable o-rings enable you to fan the stick out somewhat and get a brush/splat sound or adjust them up and a solid crack which is very nice.Now for the bad: These sticks because of the nylon sheathing sound really hollow on ride cymbals and hi hats. Forget any kind of stick definition as you get mostly wash. The stick rebound and response is almost nil as well. Picture playing on a pillow or a sponge. They are also substantially louder than Hot Rods which exaggerates the stick rebound problem. You have to darn near use Moller whips to get the stick to respond and combine that with already being a louder stick and you might as well be using regular sticks. In summary is it as very durable stick, however don't expect clean doubles or rolls unless you are going to play at regular stick volume levels. Also it is a fatiguing stick to play due to the reduced rebound action..Its like dribbling a flat basketball.

      Good Quality Stick

      By 4alkings

      from Alabama

      Comments about Vater Acoustick Sticks:

      I've used these sticks for over a month now in a small church setting on traditional kit. Used to us Hot Rods, but they wore out after a few sessions. These sticks hold up much better and have good weight, balance, and tone. They are probably a little louder than traditional Hot Rods, but they also give some punch that Hot Rods are unable to deliver. Great value when needed in a volume controllable environment.

      Worst sticks EVER!

      By Traverse Drummer

      from Dubuque, IA

      Comments about Vater Acoustick Sticks:

      I bought these because I finally saw that someone making an acoustic stick had a great idea. Regular acoustic sticks always break ...or pieces of wood get chipped. I used these for 1 show....yes 1 show and could not use these again because they broke all over the place. I had them taped up for 3/4 of a show because they were so poor of a condition after a few songs.

      Comments about Vater Acoustick Sticks:

      This stick is the most amazing stick ever. Usualy sticks like these break really easily. But this stick has nylon around the edges so it lasts forever. I highley recomend it
