      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.

            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!

                Before I switched to Vater i used Pro-Mark for about a week in which I broke a half dozen sticks, but since I changed to Vater I've broken only two in about a month!!...so far the best sticks i've used!

                  I bought these because of the great price. I was very happy with the quality after using them. They are well balanced and very durable. They feel more dense than Vic Firth which I like.
