      Comments about Vic Firth Ahmir Questlove Thompson Signature Drumsticks:

      I purchased these sticks as a gift for the drummer in our band. He has the Ludwig Questlove kit and thought he might like the sticks. Long story short, He likes them! He says he likes the longer reach and lighter touch.

      Comments about Vic Firth Ahmir Questlove Thompson Signature Drumsticks:

      I gave this stick 4 stars because if your a heavy hitter and don't use dynamics, this stick might not last to long for you because of its thin taper. It's great on electronic drums, and the extra length is awesome. I will buy more!

      Comments about Vic Firth Ahmir Questlove Thompson Signature Drumsticks:

      i picked these up just to see what they would sound like, and have been playing them none stop, i like the over all size. the sound is great you can play any type of beat with them from lite and soft to hard beating rock. the paint has chipped off but have not broken one yet and the coated grip holds up well. i have used the buddy rich and the dave wecki signature wood and i keep going back to these, if your out try them they are worth it!!!

        Great pair of sticks. I play in a jazz band and needed a lighter pair of sticks that weren't too short. These sticks are perfect for it. There was a small defect in the grip but Musicians Friend is sending me a new set free. These a definitely my favorite pair of sticks and I'll use them for a long time.

        Great sticks for some things

        Comments about Vic Firth Ahmir Questlove Thompson Signature Drumsticks:

        These drumsticks feel great and gave me a degree of finesse that I've never gotten from any other sticks. Unfortunately, their application is very limited. These sticks are amazing for jazz, hip hop, and latin (if you get over how awkward it is to cross-stick a 17" drumstick). Unfortunately, they just don't have the mass to get the job done for rock music.

            If you're heavy handed, these are NOT for you. If you want a light touch with a little pop......these are a great stick to use, especially if you're playing in a small venue.

              I love the feeling of these sticks. They have very interesting tip, so small acorn. Beautiful cymbal sound and even practice pad sounds better;) I'm in love with my Vic's Abe Laborial Sig sticks and these are their thinner brother, I think. Nice rebound, cool look. This is my first model with Vic Grip and I like the feeling of it. Very strong grip, a little bit sticky. The quality of sticks is hands down, as usually quality of Vic's sticks. I recommend it to everyone for any style of music.

              My Perfect Stick

              By 

              from Vincennes, IN

              Comments about Vic Firth Ahmir Questlove Thompson Signature Drumsticks:

              Overall these are my favorite sticks ive ever played or bought. And ive bought ALOT of sticks. I love longer drumsticks so I tried these and Im very very glad I did. The balance and weight of these sticks are truely remarkable. I love the tip as well, its not to big or to small. Wish they had them in nylon tip, then they would be the best stick ever made. I only use these and the Vic Firth Steve Jordan's, which are also amazing sticks but nothing ive played comes close to these drumsticks. Especially if you wear gloves then they are even better, since the vic grip really lets you control the stick. Seriously dont hesitate, buy these drumsticks and you will be forever grateful you did.
              A 17 inch stick with Vic Non Slip Coating and a perfect tip. Awesome
              For having a small .520 diameter these sticks are solid and dont break as easy as you would think.
              They are a little pricey but to me they are well worth it. Especially since I use them on mesh heads on my Roland Drum kit. As long as I dont smack the rims to hard, drumstick last me a very long time. Compared to someone playing on an acoustic kit.

              Great Light stick with plenty of length, sounds great clicked together. Very nice sounding on cymbals. Holds up well, despite the .520 Diameter.I would buy more if in Stock.
