      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.

              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 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!
