      Vic Firth

      The SHŌGUN® series by Vic Firth features Japanese oak for powerful cut and stout durability.

      Featuring a more rigid response than hickory, the dense Japanese white oak construction of Vic Firth's Shogun 5A sticks provides added weight and power for a full drum sound and strong rhythmic projection. The hardness of the wood tip in oak creates a brighter cymbal sound and provides excellent definition during intricate ride patterns. This unique wood also produces an incredible cross-stick tone that really cuts through.

      The 5A stick size is ideal for versatile percussionists with styles ranging from orchestral to light rock. The 5B stick size is ideal for percussionists seeking mid to high volumes - namely in marching band or rock applications.

              Solid well matched sticks - oak is a little heavier in the hands than hickory but
              these sticks will last a long time.

                  Comments about Vic Firth Shogun Japanese White Oak:

                  I've used hickory sticks for years; most recently the Vic Firth Buddy Rich Signature Sticks. After chewing through and breaking a few pairs recently I started to look for something else. I went to the local music shop looking for oak and tried every pair in the store. The SHOGUN 5B's were my favorite.

                  I've been playing them for a while now with no flaking or splitting like I used to get on the hickory's.

                  They play great on the pad also!
