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 bought these sticks for a great deal with a MF promo code. I like the way they feel in my hand. to me, they are a bit more beefy than other brands in the same size. I have already split a stick right down the middle after a week and I'm not sure if this was a flawed stick. I'm not a heavy player so only time will tell if these sticks pay for themselves. With the "free shipping" offered by MF, I would first order one pack to see how you like them.

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.

            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.
