OVERVIEW

Get a grip on your favorite stick, now with added length.

The American Classic Extreme Drumstick is ideal for the American Classic player who desires a little more power and reach. An extra 1/2" of length may not seem like much, but the difference is palpable.

These sticks also feature Vic Firth's revolutionary Vic Grip—an anti-slip drumstick coating made from an eco-friendly, water-based urethane. It provides a comfortable and slip-resistant grip. The grip is specially formulated to be extremely durable and is an ideal choice for players who prefer an enhanced grip on their drumsticks.

      I tried switching to the Zildian dipped sticks, but found the coating split and peeled far too easy; these don't and are far better quality.

      Comments about Vic Firth American Classic Extreme Drumsticks with Vic Grip:

      This is the only drumstick I will ever use. They are balanced well and I flip them a lot and they come back like a boomerang and catch easy. The Red Vic grip material does not alter rim shot sound or Russ Miller groove Wedge installed on my DW snare.
      I have used a lot of different sticks over the years and like the extra length. The plastic tip 5B I use lasts a long time. A good feeling and easy to grip stick.

              when i had ordered these sticks, i didnt really need the vic grip but i thought to myself that i might as well try it out. when i got the sticks they were pretty good, but i didnt really enjoy the vic grip very much. it felt like it made the stick heavier and the vic grip gave me a lot of blisters. i ordered 5a nylon with a vic grip and i think i might just stick with the 5a nylon with no vic grip, im not hating on the vic grip its just my personal opinion on it, all in all i absolutely love vic firth and musicians friend is the place where i get about 90 percent of my supplies for music, musicians friend has everything at a great price with no shipping costs and no tax which saves me a lot of money. i love musicians friend. :)i will obviously order again sometime from musicians friend :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :)

                Comments about Vic Firth American Classic Extreme Drumsticks with Vic Grip:

                I've been playing for years so I think I can give advice. These sticks are really nice. I usually bought classic wood tips and nylon without a type of grip. These are really long lasting too and give cymbals a nice, bright sound. This has a great feel to it too. I highly recommend it. Good for marching snares, concert snares and drum-sets.

                Vic Grib X5AN

                Comments about Vic Firth American Classic Extreme Drumsticks with Vic Grip:

                The best one's so far in all my years of playing. It's Vic Firth What's not to love??!!
                Great choice! I switched from 55A, Wanted a little more Beef and these are the answer.The extra 1/2" makes all the difference and the grip is a bonus.
                The only reason I gave it an 8 is because I break them all the time. These tend to break the traditional way,The 55A's sometimes broke in the handle.I guess if Vic Firth would give me an endorsement I wouldn't mind!!!
                A little more expensive but well worth it!!!

                Vic Grip X5AN

                By CJ

                from Mass

                Comments about Vic Firth American Classic Extreme Drumsticks with Vic Grip:

                I am giving these an overall rating of 7 because i feel that the prce increase for a grip is too much. The stick plays the same, however there is a slight difference in cross stick sounds.
                The grip is great for those people who have a tendency to drop the stick from time to tims. However if you think this product is going to help those with sweaty hands, your wrong. As a drummer i frequently run into the issue of sweaty palms. I thought i would give the ruber "vic grip," a try. It made it worse. The now wet and slipery rubber grip flew out of my hands because none of it was being absorbed like the wood would do.
                like all Vic sticks, they are great.
                Price jump from normal X5AN is too much.
