These are a decent set of sticks for the price. I got the red ones in 5A and they are very comfortable. The only complaint is that they leave red marks on my cymbals and heads, but i should have figured that. i would suggest the nylon tips to avoid this problem.

Worked for me

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about Nova Hickory Drum Sticks:

I got a pair of these sticks about 4 years ago and still have them. I got them when I played a lot more back in high school and they stood up to the abuse pretty well. They do chip and splinter, but you can make these last awhile. They do have a chance of leaving black or red, (depending on what color you get), marks behind as you play. These sticks worked great for me, but I have noticed others having a lot of trouble with them. I would suggest at least trying them out and seeing if you like them.

Ok not the best

By Drummer21-fnXzx

from Undisclosed

Comments about Nova Hickory Drum Sticks:

I bought these to use in a pinch because I went on tour with my band and quickly ran out of sticks from them breaking. These are good for a pinch but not much more than that. If you want something that will last i would recommend getting a little more expensive stick.

    Poor Quality Drum Sticks

    By Russ

    from Raleigh, NC

    See all my reviews

    Ask me a question

    Comments about Nova Hickory Drum Sticks:

    I do not like the weakness and propensity to break in half early in the life cycle.
    I used these drum sticks twice and one of them broke in half. It had a knot right in the center and the stick dissintegrated. How sad. They were so inexpensive, I did not even bother about reporting the issue, but I cannot recommend these sticks.
    They broke in the 2nd use.
    Great price, but for what?

    Not the same as Vic Firth

    By RiddimKing

    from Washington DC

    See all my reviews

    Comments about Nova Hickory Drum Sticks:

    These are budget quality sticks- NOT just renamed blemished Vic Firths. They have different paint, different tip shape, and most crucially, different taper: the 5B model's is a much shorter & more abrupt taper- making them front heavy compared to Vic Firth 5B sticks. Not bad- but not a deal on real Vic Firths...

    Comments about Nova Hickory Drum Sticks:

    I got these on a whim. Looking for new sticks, figured I would give them a try. I am very impressed with them. Vic 2nds or not, they seem like they hold up even better. A little shoulder ware, but after six months on the same pair. I couldn't ask for more(other than other sizes). Great, durable, long lasting stick. Takes rim shots like a champ. Out lasted Vic's Classic black.

    Comments about Nova Hickory Drum Sticks:

    These sticks break very fast, i bought two pairs and they broke within 2 weeks. Definitely not the quality you would expect from vix firth.

    these sticks, in my opinion are the best sticks you can buy for a reasonable price. I got the 5A black sticks and they are one of the best sticks i own.
