        Even though Danny Carey is my favorite drummer, that's not the reason that these sticks are my favorite. The taper at the grip is amazing plus I love the thickness and weight of the stick. Perfect sticks.

            Comments about Vic Firth Danny Carey Signature Drumsticks:

            I was browsing signature drumsticks, comparing them to the ones I did use then, Neil Peart Japanese oak, when I noticed something very different about Danny Carey's sticks. They were tapered to fit the hand. I use lots of technique in my playing as well as power when needed an these sticks fit like a natural glove. I let one of my friends use the pair an they stopped mid song to make sure their head was not playing tricks on them :) I'm not switching sticks any time soon. I would encourage anyone to try them, especially during performances. To truly put them an you to the test. Great sticks, great buy an thought up by a great artist.

            Great stick! Well balanced. Tips began to chip within a week, but i am a heavy hitter. Im going to try the nylon tipped ones.

            Comments about Vic Firth Danny Carey Signature Drumsticks:

            I've been playing drums professionally for over 25 years and all together for over 35 years, and these are without a doubt one of the best drumsticks on the market. I've tried every signature stick VF makes.. They very comfortable, durable and well balanced. The tapered inset is set perfectly at the balance point of the stick. Don't let the large size fool you. These sticks perform very well at light volumes and are easy to control. They will rock out too if the venue or song requires it. I bounced back and forth between these and the Zildjian Travis Barker model (yes Travis isn't that great but his sticks are awesome) and finally ended up using the DC's full time as the difference in wrist stiffness at the end of a show was greatly reduced using these sticks. This signifies that the stick is doing more work which is what drummers strive for. The teardrop tips sound ridiculous on my Zildjian K heavy ride and intricate sticking details on both snare and toms can be heard easily through the mix. As a bonus, if you have sweaty slippery hands, these sticks will not slide because of the taper in the grip. Easily one of the best performing sticks out there and a far cry better than most signature sticks. If the situation requires minimal volume I just switch to Hotrods, otherwise the DC's are in my hands. BTW, if you break one of these sticks, you either need anger management classes or need to be driving railroad spikes in crossties

              Comments about Vic Firth Danny Carey Signature Drumsticks:

              I am generally a smaller diameter stick guy. Neil Peart ProMark size. I do have difficulty hanging on to sticks sometimes. I always liked the Trueline sticks of years ago that Danny used. I thought I would give these a try. I really like them. Easy to hang on to with the recess in the handle and the weight is really nice. I am a believer in bigger sticks thanks to these.

              Must Have Stick For Any Drummer With Experience and Won't Be Disapointed!!
              Thicker stick helps with control and placement on the drum. Great stick that makes it a real joy to play.
              Great Quailty! Couldn't of been better. Really helped me and the stick lasts a long time, with great durability!
              Great value!! With such an incredible stick the price is great!

              almost the best sticks ever.

              Comments about Vic Firth Danny Carey Signature Drumsticks:

              if your looking for a stick that has a huge grip and weighs the perfect amount, this is your stick. the grips is massive, but the weight is about the same as a 2b, which is perfect for me even though i play soft rock and fast punk occasionally. i really like the groove in the middle of the stick to put your thumb, it really adds a nice balance point and a comfortable position to place your thumb. theres only one problem with this stick (its the problem i have with all vic firth sticks) is that the taper is long and super thin. it looks bad and decreases the durability. not too big of a problem considering the stick is pretty long so it might miss the taper. overall, its just a great stick with a great grip and nice feel.

              Blown Away

              By 

              from over there

              Comments about Vic Firth Danny Carey Signature Drumsticks:

              I bought these sticks from a random booth at a random drum competition because they were the only non-marching sticks left besides some puny looking pro marks and I just happened to have some spare change. I am so glad I chose these over the wimpy pro-marks. My peers insist that lighter sticks are the way to go since you are supposed to get more speed and control, but thin sticks suck. With the added mass, you get a fuller sound with more volume(More sound w/ less effort). They fit well in your hand, to the point where you forget you're even holding them. They also last and last. I chipped off a large piece of a stick and to my surprise the rebound was exactly the same! Also you can play anything with these sticks. Nobody says you have to use thin sticks for jazz and heavy sticks for rock. These sticks work for everything and everyone. Bottom line: If you want a durable, comfortable drumstick that brings out the best in your drums and refuses to break under the most severe punishment, you have found it with the Danny Carey Signatures.
