      Comments about Vic Firth Danny Carey Signature Drumsticks:

      I WAS NOT PAID FER DIS REVIEW. I use reviews all the time to aid in my buying decisions. So it's only fair that I post a few.....kinda the pay it forward thing. I'm 55 y/o, been playing drums for 43 years, ( by no means does length of time equal skill and ability), I build/repair guitars and acoustic drums and totally love the mad drumming skills of Danny Carey and totally love TOOL. The stick sizes I have used are Vater 7A, 5A, 5B and 2B, and 2 sizes of Vic Firth marching corps sticks. I was playing the Vater 2B until I tried the Danny Carey sticks. The Danny Carey sticks are the closet to perfect I have yet to find; perfect weight, length, balance, wood density and the "finger fitted" area prevents my fingers from drifting up the stick. These sticks are amazingly comfortable and the rebound of the stick, provides an ease of movement never before experienced with another stick. For sure, this is my new favorite stick; in fact, after I tried the first pair, I bought 4 more pairs...............they are sooo worth the price. Just because I've played 43 years doesn't mean I'm any good. Ever notice how bad the drivers in their 80s are...and they've been driving for 60 years. Dunning Kruger effect baby!!!

            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.

                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

                  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.
