Lighter weight and a softer touch with the Sugar Maple Phat Ride.
Vater’s popular Phat Ride model in a Sugar Maple version. Same dimensions as the Hickory Phat Ride model (16" length, .580 diameter), but made from Sugar Maple for a lighter weight and softer touch. The Sugar Maple Phat Ride's quick taper to a medium-sized round tip produces a clean sound on ride cymbals. A very versatile stick!

Comments about Vater Sugar Maple Phat Ride Drum Sticks:
Just picked a pair of these up at my local drum store. I have a 21" A Sweet Ride. The particular one I own is very light and washy. I wanted a pair of sticks to play at my softer gigs in smaller venues, for busking, and something to provide my ride with more stick definition. These sticks were a solid choice. It cleaned the sound of my ride up and now I can get completely different textures out of my cymbals. These sticks are EXTREMELY light. I've never owned a maple pair, have always stuck to hickory but so far I'm liking it. I would not recommend these to anyone playing louder gigs or songs where you bash your cymbals as Maple is not as dense as hickory and you'll run through these sticks fairly quickly.
