    Comments about Vic Firth Complete Modern Jazz Collection with Free Stick Bag:

    I was excited to try these out, but my excitement was soon tempered with disappointment. Many of these sticks are just like normal Vic models that already existed. Also, I find many (if not all) of them to be too heavy for jazz.

    The MJC 1 is a essentially a 55A that's 1/8" longer. At .580 in diameter, that's a big stick for jazz.
    The MJC 2 is easily the best of the bunch and is the only one unique to the Vic repertoire. It has a nice long taper and an arrow tip, but is still a bit beefy at .550
    The MJC 3 is basically an 8D that is 5/16" longer. Feels and plays heavier than it's .540 diameter.
    The MJC 4 is Maple, and is essentially a thicker SD4. Even though it's maple, it's waaay too thick for me at a diameter of .595.
    The MJC 5 is essentially an MJC 3 with a nylon tip, minus the 5/16" in length (so it's a nylon tip 8D)!

    Overall, I'm disappointed. If you're playing true jazz in acoustic, unmiked places with thinner cymbals, I thick you will find these sticks to be too much for you, your audience and your cymbals. These are basically just rehashes of what Vic already makes (save for the MJC2), and I wouldn't consider any of those other models that the Modern Jazz Collection is based upon to be jazz sticks at all. Disappointed with Vic Firth on these sticks, they could've done so much better. They hype them up as "rarities" and "staples of their secret back room models" when is essence, aside from the MJC2, they are basically "normal" Vic sitcks.

      Comments about Vic Firth Complete Modern Jazz Collection with Free Stick Bag:

      Great bang for your buck! I love each pair of sticks for different reasons. They can all be used on any gig and it comes at the cost of 4 pairs of sticks (and an additional pair and stick bag).
