      Heavy-duty sticks for man-sized music.

      Vater Chad Smith Signature Funkblaster Drumsticks offer the same grip as the standard 5B with a sturdier taper. These sticks are great for heavy rock and riding a cymbal bell. Classic acorn-shaped tip. Wood only.

      Great Sticks!

      By daynne

      Comments about Vater Chad Smith Signature Funkblaster Drumsticks:

      I like these sticks a lot. If they had nylon tips, I would use them exclusively. (I prefer nylon's sound and feel with cymbals, that and the fact that they last longer as a rule of thumb.) But they are still really nice. One thing to keep in mind though, If you are a super hard hitter (cracking cymbals and putting holes through drumheads a lot,) you might not want these. Go for Taylor Hawkins Signature sticks. But if you are anything from a light to fairly hard hitter, these will last for a while, I'm sure. I've been playing pretty hard with these things for hours at a time for a couple of days now, and they aren't even that chipped up or anything. They are one of my all time favorites, and I've played with many sticks.
      These sticks are really nice. They are pretty much a 5b, with a stronger taper like it says. Much to my surprise, they are really light. But they are well built, and they are solid. The light weight helps with anything from dynamics to smaller things like getting more sound when side-sticking the bell of a ride, or buzzes on a snare. The light weight and acorn tip makes it very easy to roll. To be honest, I wish they had nylon tips, though, because in my experiance acorn shaped tips sometimes can chip pretty easily. The tips are doing good so far, though.
      They are good quality sticks for less than you would think. The only reason I give quality a nine is that since they are so light weight, I don't know how long they last yet. But as I said earlier, they are doing fine so far. The weight makes it easy to play faster.
      I am always amazed at how little signature sticks cost at Musician's Friend.

      Chad Smith sticks are great

      Comments about Vater Chad Smith Signature Funkblaster Drumsticks:

      Got a beefy feel to them. Great for fast playing and funk obviously. The sticks feel great. The red hot chili peppers are one of the greatest bands.

      These sticks are the perfect sticks. They fell amazing and they play amazing too. Whatever you are using now drop them and grab some Funkblaster sticks.

      great stick if you like playing funk rock

      By sabianman-cSkxD

      Comments about Vater Chad Smith Signature Funkblaster Drumsticks:

      i've used these sticks for about a year now because i love playing the chili peppers' style of music. they are short but i quickly got used to them and their odd tip and recommend them if you enjoy this same style. they do break about an inch below the tip but overal i found them to last as long, if not longer, then most other sticks i have used.

      Chad Smith sticks

      By Shane Watson

      from Packwood, WA

      Comments about Vater Chad Smith Signature Funkblaster Drumsticks:

      First of all, I really like these sticks. For the most part they hold up well, but now I have had two of these sticks break about an inch away from the tip. My regular Vater 5B's have never done that. That is the only bad thing I have found about these sticks. Overall, I really like them.

      Comments about Vater Chad Smith Signature Funkblaster Drumsticks:

      Anyone get that joke? BSSM=RHCP's best album to date....anyways...these sticks are great. I pound so hard I break sticks left and right, but for some reason these ones havent broken yet. Now THAT's quality! It sounds great on the ride also. Chad really knew what he was doing when he made these things. This sticks were made for bashin' and not only do they do it well they do it in style, and thats what makes them a cut above the rest.

      Comments about Vater Chad Smith Signature Funkblaster Drumsticks:

      These sticks have got to be the best i have held in my 7 years of drumming. There right weight and the sound is excellent. Vater have really made sticks that are wearthy of chad smiths name. I recommend these to any drummer who wants to make a hardcore sound.
