    Comments about Vic Firth Buddy Rich Signature Drumsticks:

    Great stick long and light allowing great rebound, the length allows for a strong rebound note maintaining consistent sounding notes in double strokes. The tip is unusually resilient tips stay in tact for longer than average wood sticks. Can be a challenge at times to play quiet ballads due to the thick tip not a fast stick although due to the length the stick will foster a more relaxed approach even when the tip starts to ware it provides a great quiet attack on the ride.

        Buddy is my favorite drummer and just bought these to have a pair of the sticks he used. I tried them out and the balance of this stick is fantastic. My rolls were cleaner and they fit in my hand perfectly. So this is my new stick,sorry Vater.....

          Comments about Vic Firth Buddy Rich Signature Drumsticks:

          this is a good all'round stick.But if you play a lot of fast jazz/fusion you'll need to switch to the Regal Tip 5A, which allows you to play a super-fast ride cymbal. The BR stick is good if you must own only one pair. This will do the job!

          Love these sticks! I like the size, just in the 5-a,5-b area.... The paint/coating is perfect, just smooth enough without slipping! Wouldn't recommend the nylon tips though, break more often then the wood tips. (tried both)

          Great Versatile Stick

          Comments about Vic Firth Buddy Rich Signature Drumsticks:

          It doesn't matter if Buddy Rich approved this stick or not. It's not going to turn his grave over. This is an awesome stick, and it will not cease to be seen. I have been using these sticks for 6 years. I have never broken a pair of these, believe it or not. And I still have every pair I've used over the years. As far as the stick detailing, this is a great in-between stick for the 5A and 5B. It has a heavier butt than the 5A, but is lighter than the 5B. In addition, I've always favored sticks with a longer neck because it fits the fulcrum point in my hand. I dig the white stick. It looks sexy. haha. The visual side, it looks great. On stage, if you're a trickster, the crowd will definitely see that stick in the air. Rimshot, great. Bounce off of head, awesome. Strongly recommend this stick.

          White Paint?

          By 

          from Fort Worth, TX

          Comments about Vic Firth Buddy Rich Signature Drumsticks:

          Not sure where the white paint theme came from. Saw Buddy on TV many times. Never saw anything white.
          Having said that, these are the best sticks I have ever used.
          For jazz drummers or drummers who like a lot of double stick action, these have no equal.
          The only way to improve these is make a lighter maple version

          Nice balance and weight

          By 

          from New York,NY

          Comments about Vic Firth Buddy Rich Signature Drumsticks:

          First thing is I have seen several Buddy Rich DVD's and I have never seen him using this sticks. When exactly did Buddy approve these? I think the stick have very good balance. I have other signatures but I keep coming back to these. It's like a 5A with a thicker neck. The tip is unusual something in between an acorn and a round tip. It works really well

          I needed a new pair of sticks because my old sticks broke.I thought would be like any other sticks breaking within the first year and all but these have lasted me a long time.Best money I've ever spent.

          they broke in a freakin month

          Comments about Vic Firth Buddy Rich Signature Drumsticks:

          These sticks were the best feeling sticks when I got them. I loved them. UNTIL THEY BROKE!!! These were absolutely the worst investment. i got them on my birthday and they broke a little less than a month later. Take my word and dont buy these sticks. Buy some pro-mark 5A sticks instead. Ive had those for many months and they still are in perfect condition.
