        Comments about Vater Sugar Maple Bebop:

        Shoppers need to keep in mind that these are maple sticks. They are w-a-y lighter than hickory. They are perfect for small venue, low volume jazz or pop. The shape of the tip is great on my jazz cymbals... might break on my rock set. I get the 550s because they are the same diameter as the ProMark 5As I use with my rock set. So I don't have to get used to such a different feel. Great quality too.

        Comments about Vater Sugar Maple Bebop:

        Keep in mind, I use the 500 size. I use this when I play in a jazz combo (trio, up to sextet). It really allows you to play with a bit more force, but still get a very soft sound. I've gotten a lot of compliments on my sound because of this stick. Additionally, if you have very dark cymbals, it will bring out they're brighter tones, which for me is fabulous. If you already have pretty bright cymbals, you may want to go with the 550 instead of the 500

            Excellent feel, weight and balance. Using them for a jazz trio performing in a couple of lower volume venues. Perfect for this type playing.
