      Developed for the player who is looking for ultimate rebound on the drum and ride cymbal, the American Jazz line consists of 6 models which feature a long taper in the shaft for that great feel! The neck specifications are sizeable enough to create dark cymbal sounds, and the small teardrop tip keeps everything in focus.

        AJ2 - Review

            Comments about Vic Firth American Jazz Hickory Drumsticks:

            (AJ2)

            These are great for fast swing and other styles that require quick rebound and a light(ish) touch. The AJ2 are comparable to standard 5As with a longer taper giving them the quicker response. These still have a thicker butt so rim clicks are as strong as with a regular stick.

            These make a positive difference with quick ride work when compared to VF normal 5As but you do lose a little bit of power and presumably some durability if you are shoulder crashing cymbals all the time.

              Comments about Vic Firth American Jazz Hickory Drumsticks:

              I was looking for something thinner than a 5A to play a bit more quietly. These accomplished that, but unexpectly, they made each note on the toms more clear, and the drums sound more open. FYI, the toms were 10, 12, and a 14 floor using Evans coated G12s. The only thing that takes a little getting used to is that the sticks are thin enough that they "give" a little when hitting the heads, but you adjust quickly. If you want a more distinct, open sound on coated heads, give these a try.

              Comments about Vic Firth American Jazz Hickory Drumsticks:

              For jazz combo work, these are superb sticks. They have a thin diameter with a fine taper that offers a light touch. They are perfectly balanced for playing with precision. I've tried 3 other major brands of jazz stick, but the Vic Firth AJ5 is now my go to stick. If you're a jazzer, I can highly recommend trying these great sticks.

                These are much easier on the cymbals and drum heads. Wanted some very light sticks for practice and lower volume as well. Getting older and don't want LOUD volume. I also like to play with radio and MP3. These don't drown out the sound. Also don't annoy the neighbors and wife as much. They seem to roll easier too. Most affordable light sticks on the net!

                These drumsticks sound awesome on our DW set and they make a great sound with the cymbals especially the ride which we use for almost everything we play. I would recommend these drumsticks to anybody.

                  I have returned to amateur drumming after a brief stint as a boy snare drummer in the 1960s. Back then we used Ludwig sticks, big fat #6B to practice and #2A to perform. My Vic Firth AJ3 sticks are excellent in every way, and are well matched as they produce exactly the same pitch when striking the drum. 100% quality control. I'm still a fairly lame drummer, but have my moments with Vic Firth!

                            If your looking for light and tough sticks these are it. Really let you "feel" the drums. The tips do break down fast, but by then the stick is ready to be replaced. I can get a few weeks of daily playing out of them. Looking for a nylon tip model, but still love wood.

                              I use these sticks to reproduce authentic vintage drum sound from a 1930s Leedy drum kit with calf skin heads, original vintage cymbals and hi-hat playing syncopated dance music of that era. The AJ4s have exactly the right weight and hardness. They also withstand hitting the side of the paperthin cymbal that's as sharp as a knife. These are not rock music sticks, these sticks are for drummers that want to bring out the fine nuances that make old dance music great.

                              AJ6 is the best of this bunch

                              from Ann Arbor, MI

                              Comments about Vic Firth American Jazz Hickory Drumsticks:

                              The AJ6 gives a nice, shaft to hold on to (about a 5A), but the taper is so gradual and the neck is so thin that these absolutley feel great in your hands! Great rebound on the drums, and even better rebound on the ride cymbal! You can play very fast ride patterns a lot easier with the AJ6's. Also, like Vic Firth's ad says it is truly impossible to overplay with these! You can dig in to the ride cymbal as hard as you want to and it will never get out of control (the cymbal or you). Fantastic sticks! Also, if you dig the AJ6, also check out the Pro Mark MJZ 7. It's basically a maple version of the AJ6. You'll actually REQUEST an uptempo jazz tune with these sticks (instead of cringing in fear when "Seven Steps to Heaven" is called, like I used to!)
