      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.

        Comments about Vater Hickory Drumsticks Prepack:

        These sticks are amazing. I was previously sponsored by pro-mark, but i recently switched to vater. These are way cheaper and last much longer. I was going through a pair of japanese white oak in less than a week. These will easily last me 2 weeks or even more in some cases.

              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 Prepack:

                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.
