OVERVIEW

Buy 4 and save!

Vater chose hickory for these 5A drumsticks. Hickory is the most popular wood used for making drumsticks. It's denser, heavier and more rigid than maple and can absorb a great amount of shock, reducing hand and wrist fatigue.

I have been using these since I started playing, roughly 6 years ago? Anyway, I haven't ever had a problem. I prefer the nylon tips, since the wood ones chip. I mostly play Metal, and through the 6 or so pairs I've been through since I started, I've only had 1 break pre-maturely. They can hold up to heavy hitting/playing til they wear REALLY thin. I was alittle frustrated they take so long before breaking - because I refuse to start on a new pair til the ones I'm using are unplayable anymore. These things are very well worth the money.

Like a few others in the reviews, my pack had terribly uneven sticks. The weights were TOTALLY off for all of them. I can't recall if the pairs themselves were even, but throwing them in my stick holder, it'll take me 10 tries to find 2 sticks that are remotely close to each other. This may be a bad batch, but man these are out right unusable for me.

      These sticks are a good fit for me. I am worship director at a church that plays the drums and also have a contemporary rock christian band and have used these sticks for the last four years and love them. They are always well made and the price is right.

        Comments about Vater Hickory Drumsticks 4 Pack - Buy 3 Get 1 Free:

        I started using vater sticks in 2003 and have loved them ever since. To me, vater sticks have a softer more shock absorption feel over leading brands without shortening the life. I've tried to use other brands over the years to compare but I always go back to vater.

          Since being a novice, these are the first sticks I have ever used, and they are great for me. Very nicely finished and balanced. Not familiar with other brands, but truly like these as a start.

            i've used many brands over the years including Pro Mark, Vic Firth, etc and once i tried Vater 10+ years ago i've never tried another brand. Vater has always been a solid product and i've never had a defective or bad pair. recommended.

                I ordered 3A nylon tip (I like a louder ride cymbal ping) and they are the best quality all around! I once ordered 3A vaters but they came warped. Probably because they weren't from musicians friend. Great product! Definitely will buy these again. Thanks Musician's Friend!
