            Comments about Vic Firth Steve Gadd Signature Drumsticks:

            I have been using these STEVE GADD signature Vic Firth sticks for about 4 years now... I changed to these from a Regal Tip 5B and find that the STEVE GADD sticks are better balanced and it seems that I get better sound from my whole kit with them.. I have found the sticks that I will be using from now on.. Thank you Vic Firth for providing such a quality Stick at a good price.

                    I never break sticks but wear out the shoulders through cymbal use. This stick lasts much longer and maintains it's integrity better than any other sticks I've ever played. Plus, Steve Gadd is one of my drum heroes.

                        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 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.
