          These are a great pair of sticks, good bounce, nice light weight. I have noticed some small problems with them though. I didn't see any one who has mentioned it but either the black paint or the gloss on the sticks make them somewhat slippery, so if you play alot of rock or get sweaty hands it will slip around alot. Yes, the paint chips and doesn't look great but that's not a big deal at all.

              Comments about Vic Firth Steve Gadd Signature Drumsticks:

              These are great sticks! I usually play 7A's and these are just a little bigger. They have a larger tip which adds punch to the toms, and louder pings on the ride. Just might be my stick of choise right now.

              I would like to see them in a natural finish because as time goes on, they kinda look weird with the pant chipping off.

              These sticks are great. I love the weight and balance. The heads are small and seem to create their own bounce. The black paint wears rather quickly but no breakage as yet. I really like most of the VF products but really enjoy these.

                    The barrel heads on these things are the reason I love them and the reason I hate them.

                    They give a really unique sounding hit that I can't get out of any other stick but the heads chip SO FAST!

                    I recommend using nylons for practice (though they sound awful) and saving your wooden tips for gigs, or you may go broke.

                    These sticks are My choice of sticks, and while I am willing to use most any sticks for practice, I can't go on stage without a pair of these.
                    Their Sound is so great, so you get the best crisp sound of the cymbals. They do break after about 20 hours.
                    These Sticks are my concert sticks. whenever I have a paid concert I get a new pair of these sticks, because They are truly great and beautiful.

                        These sticks are the best-balanced, most consistent quality sticks I've ever used. On my 4th pair now. Love them for rock, blues, even ballads where possible. Very solid click when it's time for that. Never concerned which one is in which hand, and they wear well (except when the other guy plays...). Would recommend to novice or pro, for anything louder than your living room.

                        Great stick!

                        Comments about Vic Firth Steve Gadd Signature Drumsticks:

                        As with all sticks these days,the better the price, the better the value. Most products are right in there.
                        I have been using the Gadd sticks for years. The tip design is my favorite for cymbal sound. The diameter of the stick and the overall weight is great for me; generally speaking.

                        One thing that bothers me is Firth's seemingly inability to get the overall weight of the Gadd stick to be more consistant. It's all over the map and is a bit irritating especially when they are TOO HEAVY!!
                        I wrote them about it but received no response. Oh well......

                        Another stick I have grown fond of is the ProMark Todd Suchermann model. Made of maple, it is meaty but lighter and plays beautifully.

                        Used To Be Great

                        from Madison, WI

                        Comments about Vic Firth Steve Gadd Signature Drumsticks:

                        Overall, the sticks are amazing to play with - just beware that they might not hold up as well as they used to if you a repeat buyer.
                        I've been playing with the Steve Gadd Signature sticks for nearly five years as a professional touring musician. I play light-medium rock, funk, jazz, and blues and the sticks have always held up great. Sure the paint would chip and you'd get the occasional internal crack that you could really feel when play fast grooves, but overall they would hold up for quite some time.

                        Recently, however; the quality has dropped significantly. I can tell in the color of the word from one broken pair to another that they are being made more cheaply. With little to no abuse, the sticks are splittle apart with the grain and unfortunatley, I'm in the search for a new stick. Hopefully not a new stick company.

                        I've written a letter to Vic Firth with my concerns, but I have a feeling my complaint might fall on deaf ears.
