    Comments about Vater Stewart Copeland Standard Drumsticks:

    Simply the perfect stick for the job. I play music that ranges from rock to r&b to blues to funk and many others. This stick covers them all. The most impressive feature to me is the balance of the stick. I don't have fatigue issues in my hands. I'll keep playing with them as long as they keep making them!

    Comments about Vater Stewart Copeland Standard Drumsticks:

    I bought these sticks solely because I've been a Stewart Copeland and The Police fan, and I just love the way he rips on his drum kit.

    I was happy that I got these sticks, and was surprised at while being thin, they're more thicker on the inside than expected. I got used to playing in Copeland's unorthodox Traditional Grip quickly and these sticks are perfect for practicing, playing, and/or probably for doing concerts, as Stewart shows us. He even has the label of the drumstick seemingly showing to the part where you place your hand for using Traditional Grip!

    All around, amazing sticks. While you have to get used to them, it takes about 10-20 minutes. I still find myself doing interesting beats with them. Good job, Mr. Copeland and the people at Vater! A+++!!!

    Comments about Vater Stewart Copeland Standard Drumsticks:

    I've been playing drums for over 20 years and this is the stick I will use until they stop making them! It's perfectly thin and balanced and the wood tip give the perfect tone and reaction. Plus, who doesn't love Stewart Copeland?!

    Best 'stick around'

    By KingSalami

    Comments about Vater Stewart Copeland Standard Drumsticks:

    The Vater SC sticks are always in my hands, driving the King Salami rock machine! They're the best 'wood' available. "Stick around"!

    best of both

    By j-jPqIc

    from Brighton UK

    Comments about Vater Stewart Copeland Standard Drumsticks:

    I agree - finally a stick that delivers situations - perfect weight and size for me (I have smallish hands, I might add)- natural feel - they cut through heaviness for example if you contend with down tuned distorted bass/guitar.....! Great for detailed precise play too.. - I don't use anything else now...

    My favorite Vater model

    By Scorwrtr

    from Fremont, CA

    Comments about Vater Stewart Copeland Standard Drumsticks:

    I've been playing a very long time, and have tried pretty much every model from every manufacturer. Over the years, my favorites have changed in quality or in manufacturing process, or have been discontinued. That's what led me, eventually, to Vater. Over the last 8 years or so I've tried most of their sticks and have finally settled on the Stewart Copeland models. They have enough "girth" to handle heavy rock and Cobham-style work without splintering. I also like a more rounded tip, as it never made sense to me why a stick's tip would come to a point (dents the heads, etc.). These tips aren't quite as round as Vater's Manhattan 7A, but it's a much beefier stick (I'll still use Manhattans for low volume or jazz work).After going through several dozen pair over the last 3 years, I only have 2 negative comments, but they're minor: First, you catch enough cymbals with the tip and you're bound to shave it down some (but that's true with any wood tip); and second, eventually they break, although it is eventually, not on the same session. (I was using graphite-based sticks for awhile, and of course they don't break, but the response is different, and they pass more of the impact into your hand than wood, which seems to be more fatiguing. So I'm back to wood.)For the record, I have to say I think stick industry quality standards are much lower than they were 30 years ago. But Vater is doing better than any of the others IMHO; their sticks wear better and longer. And I swear I don't care whose name is on it; but these Stweart Copeland models are just right for me, especially playing complex rock (not an oxymoron) or anything where I need speed and volume together. I'm "sticking" with them!

    Steward Copeland sticks

    By 007 drummer

    from Urbana, IL

    Comments about Vater Stewart Copeland Standard Drumsticks:

    A touring friend of mine received a pair of these sticks as a gift, and they've led him to consider switching his endorsement to Vater. He let me try them for myself, and they have a good, heavy yet balanced feel to them -- the result of a shorter shoulder.Since I don't own them, I can't speak for their durability...but they seem awful sturdy. Stewart will hit a few rimshots, so his sticks have to stand up.

    These Sticks Rock!!!

    By the smaller cheese

    from Centralia, WA

    Comments about Vater Stewart Copeland Standard Drumsticks:

    I bought these sticks two weeks ago, and they still haven't broke. I practice at least an hour and a half everyday! They are amazingly durable for such a light stick. They are thin and very versatile. These sticks are GREAT!!!
