I gave these sticks a consistent value of "9" as I don't believe there is a "perfect 10" stick out there. Each pair of sticks is different and most companies produce a good product. I bought 1 pair and was so happy with them that I ordered 4 more pairs. I have played all the major stick companies and models and am very happy with my Vater purchase and will do so again and again.
I purchased these on a whim and am glad I did. At first I thought they would be too light for playing but they stand up well and have not broken a pair yet. The weight of the stick is misleading as they are very light yet play as if they are much heavier.
I have been playing drums for over 40 years and was taught to play correctly, (marching and concert bands) and for this reason I am not in the habit of breaking sticks usually they wear out from the rim shots. These sticks are well balanced and sound good producing a warm sound from good heads and a nice "bright" sound from the ride cymbal.
These sticks are about average in price for high quality sticks yet are superior in price for product value.

I first thought that the first ones that I got were defective because I broke the nylon tip on the first day of use on the ride. When I got a new pair and managed to break the stick (the thinnest part at the top just snapped on the crash) I changed to Ahead. These sticks have a great feel to them, but the quality just is not what I expected.

    Comments about Vater Sugar Maple Drumsticks:

    Vater sticks are the best on the market to begin with, but they're also the only company who makes maple sticks that last. Maple sticks are definitely one of Vater's specialty. These maple sticks are a softer wood and about 25% lighter than hickory counterparts, but unlike other brands, the Vaters last about as long as hickory sticks, even when hitting rim shots. They dent, but they don't fray any faster than hickory sticks. The Blazer model feels amazing right off the bat. A nice and beefy stick without the weight. Lightning fast. I normally use hickory 5B's but use Blazers for practice or bar gigs where I have to be a little less loud, but don't want to sacrifice feel by playing with twigs. Additionally, these maple sticks sound fantastic on ride cymbals, and give you a real fat pop on your snare.

        I love the flared bead... It used to be even more flared I believe and the stick may have been a little longer... I could be wrong about that, either way they function and feel great on lighter and faster material...

              I love these sticks. However, If you play a lot of rim shots, the stick may tend to bruise more noticeably than a stick finished with lacquer. But, on balance, I love them and will certainly order more.

                  Vater Sugar Maple Drumsticks Super Jazz Wood

                  Comments about Vater Sugar Maple Drumsticks:

                  After having played with Hickory sticks of another brand for many years (decades, lol), I finally found my optimal stick for the future.
                  These are the ideal drum sticks for me to play Jazz. I used thinner sticks before, but since I tried the Vater Super Jazz in Sugar Maple, I could switch to a slightly thicker stick with an ever better performance than my former Hickory Sticks.
                  Every pair is matched perfectly and crafted to perfection.
                  Best value for my money.

                  Fantastic sticks and good value

                  Comments about Vater Sugar Maple Drumsticks:

                  I gave these sticks a consistent value of "9" as I don't believe there is a "perfect 10" stick out there. Each pair of sticks is different and most companies produce a good product. I bought 1 pair and was so happy with them that I ordered 4 more pairs. I have played all the major stick companies and models and am very happy with my Vater purchase and will do so again and again.
                  I purchased these on a whim and am glad I did. At first I thought they would be too light for playing but they stand up well and have not broken a pair yet. The weight of the stick is misleading as they are very light yet play as if they are much heavier.
                  I have been playing drums for over 40 years and was taught to play correctly, (marching and concert bands) and for this reason I am not in the habit of breaking sticks usually they wear out from the rim shots. These sticks are well balanced and sound good producing a warm sound from good heads and a nice "bright" sound from the ride cymbal.
                  These sticks are about average in price for high quality sticks yet are superior in price for product value.

                  For the longest i was looking for a stick with durability but yet light.I was introduced to vater sugar maple stick's and boy was i impressed !!I am a hard hitting drummer when it comes to a funk groove but when i use my toms or my cymbals i don't hit them hard.I use super jazz so far because it's light but yet durable and that is what i am looking for.I plan to try some of the other sugar maple sticks but so far i am stuck on the super jazz.I wouldn't recommend this stick for hard hitting drummer but if your smooth playing cat then this is the stick for you.
