          The ride cymbal clarity is beautiful with this stick; feels wonderful! Does what it's described to do. If it's designed by Erskine, you can't go wrong!

              Great sound, very jazzy feel... This is a 'go-to' set of jazz/funk/blues sticks, no question.

                  The small tips provide a lighter ping; this is a nice addition to my tonal options. Short taper shaft puts a little more weight forward so there's still some power behind the stroke.

                  The balance is great. Easy to force a crisp sound with only the fingers and wrist. The tips are very durable for wooden ones. Its the only type of sticks that I use now.

                    This is a great, well balanced stick for all kinds of music. I play primarily blues and jazz and these sticks are easy on the hands, provide a wonderful cymbal sound and hold up well. I have been using them for well over five years...will use nothing else on drum set.

                    The perfect jazz stick.

                    Comments about Vic Firth Peter Erskine Signature Ride Drumsticks:

                    Try it and you won't go back. I first bought them as a joke, but it said "Ride Stick" on the side, but its amazingly true. these sticks are awesome.
                    The elongated acorn tip make cymbals sound amazing! Any ride will sound better when played with this stick.
                    As with any wood tip stick, the tips chip and break easily on these sticks, which can be a down side. but it hasn't stopped me from using this stick exclusively for jazz.
                    You literally can't go wrong.

                    A perfect, all-around stick!

                    By Winged Wheel Watcher

                    from Ann Arbor, MI

                    Comments about Vic Firth Peter Erskine Signature Ride Drumsticks:

                    I agree with everyone below. These sticks have a great feel and the balance on them feels so natural. These aren't just for jazz, in fact they are almost (to me) a little heavy for jazz (thicker than a 5A). Although I certainly use them for jazz, sometimes I like a lighter stick for a lighter touch. Where these really shine though is their versatility. I play in a power-pop/rock band, and this is my stick of choice for that band. They hold up well, and you can really hit hard with these when needed, but still maintain a great feel and balance point, without using heavier sticks. From jazz, to big band to rock and anything else you can think of, these truly are the perfect "go to" stick. I can't imagine a musical style where you coudn't use them (ok, maybe drum corps) but that's about it!

                    I have experimented with numerous kinds of sticks. I've gone from Zildjian, to Pro-Mark, to Vater, and now to Vic Firth. No doubt that these Peter Erskine Ride Sticks are the best they have. Perfect for all styles of music. I know it is a "ride" stick, but it feels good on everything on my kit (snare, 10, 12, 13,14, 16 inch toms, hi-hat, 16" 18" crash, 20" 22" ride, 18" EFX, and 2 splashes). You cannot go wrong with these sticks. They are extremely light weight, yet they have alot of power. BUY THESE STICKS

                    Absolutely the best jazz stick on the market. I can't imagine how they could possibly improve this product. The rebound really allows the sticks to play on their own. Not to mention my A's and A Customs have never sounded better.

                    WOW, that pretty much sums it up. I have never heard a better cymbal sound in my life! Playing the ride is simply a great experience, they are lightweight and bouncy, perfect for jazz. I would not try to sound like Bonham with them (use SD1's). They are great for lighter playing and make all your cymbals sound great. Not to mention they also sound great on snares and toms.
