I have played with Vic Firth American Standard 5As for decades, nothing else. I joined a group of drummers taking online lessons from Dave Weckl and one of the drummers recommended Dave's new Evolution signature sticks, so I thought I'd give them a try. I was amazed at the difference in feel from my usual sticks (VFAS 5A). These sticks are very balanced and have a great feel. They are very similar to my old 5As but with a slightly thicker top end near the tip and the tip itself has a different shape (a more compact tear-shape). With these slight changes, it makes a world of difference while playing. I could feel it right away and loved the way it made playing just seem easier. Big eye-opener for me and now my go-to stick. Be careful though, they do 'bleed' a bit of that orange color, LOL.

After playing 4 hours with these sticks, and switching them from hand to hand to help with consistent wear, one already has some major duck-tails going on in the center. It will probably break in half on my next 2 hour set like every other hickory drum stick ever made. They look cool, people talk well about them, but when it comes to crunch time you're better off buying some cheaper 5a's or something. In my personal opinion, not worth the 8 bucks.

      I've been using this evolution drumstick for a long time and it is just the right one for what I need since I do play jazz and other styles. The weight is perfect to provide a great fulcrum and to take advantage of the bouncing. I prefer the wood tip since it provides a full and natural sound.

        I have been looking for the right stick for me for years. These sticks are as close as I have found. Just the right weight and length for me. I'm a heavy hitter and then one issue I've had is that the tips seem to crack and break easily. Other than that I really like these sticks...

        I've always loved the quality of Vic firth sticks, I've always used them. Any time I've tried out other sticks, they just weren't the same caliber of the Vic standards. I've been on a hunt for the perfect stick, and theese just could bossibly be them. They are perfect in diameter, weight and durability. And the tip provides awesome clarity on cymbals, and the throw and rebound of theese sticks are like none other I've ever tried! Although I mainly focus on Jazz, theese sticks are great for basically all genres.

          Comments about Vic Firth Dave Weckl Evolution Signature Drumsticks:

          of course, there's no such thing as it is totally subjective. However, I will say this: they're about as perfectly balanced as a factory item can be. I primarily play funk/jazz/r&b on a studio/fusion/maple kit using evans G2 coated tom heads, tuned somewhat tight and balanced at tonal interval; a very musical set-up. Additionally, I utilize the traditional grip and these babies are a delight; quick, true and even. Concerning longevity, I get into the rims a lot and have noticed no excessive wear as a result. Nonetheless, I doubt they would suffice for heavy hitters as they are definitely light weight but if you're a more modulated, expressive player these might be for you. Think of them as the equivalent of a painter's fine, natural bristle brushes and go on and paint your masterpiece.

          The Dave Weckl sticks are amazing. They are thick enough to hold up to a pounding, and durable enough to stand a beating over time. They are a solid stick that is also light enough not to compromise any quickness or agility. Overall a worthwhile investment...also check out the Steve Gadd sticks.

          By mnied

          from Bay Area, CA

          Comments about Vic Firth Dave Weckl Evolution Signature Drumsticks:

          The Dave Weckl Signature sticks are as good a pair of sticks as the man they're named for is a drummer. I first picked these up a little over a year ago, after playing VF 5a's and Gadd signatures. These sticks are light, quick, and powerful, giving punch and speed on toms but still retaining a tremendous control and feel for cymbals and snarework. I have also yet to break a single one of these sticks, being a full time student majoring in music with a focus on jazz and a love of funk and rock. My only complaint is that the polish on the sticks makes them more prone to slipping out of sweaty hands, so if you sweat easily (I tend not to) maybe choose a non-coated stick instead.

          Great, but Not

          from Worcester, MA

          Comments about Vic Firth Dave Weckl Evolution Signature Drumsticks:

          I'll start off by saying that I absolutely love playing with these sticks. They have a great feel, and help create the best sounds i've heard out of my cymbals yet.Unfortunately, they don't seem to last long. The older style.. i would get this very strange break pattern, as if the tip was yanked straight outwards... I did this to 2 sticks, one from each pair, within a week, each. Then i had a pair left over, and eventually they broke normally.I got this pair today, I guess the newer design? Either way, I was running late to band practice, and grabbed these, i love how they play. Well, about halfway through the first song, one of them split, while playing a swing ostinato on the ride cymbal. Nothing hard, just split right down the middle. The other one lasted the rest of the night..These are great sticks to play with... but they break very easily.

          These sticks are great for the drumset. They will not break unless you abuse them. I would recommend buying the nylon because the wood tips do seem to chip very quickly. But overall it is great. Has the feel of a 5B but without the weight, and the tip is excellent. Very good stick.

          I bought a pair of these sticks last year and they have lasted me until now. I still have them, and they aren't broken, but the tips are ground down. I bought a new pair and they broke on the second practice. That same thing happened to my friend. What happened to these sticks? I love the feel in my hand, so they are good if you like to buy sticks every few practices.

          I thought they were very decent sticks
          Not Bad sticks at all, they felt pretty good in my hands. The Finish was really shiny and made it easy to play with. Would Recomend to a person NOT playing harder music.
          they didn't last as long as expected....

          these sticks are a must have for a drummer that is not genre specific, they work for jazz, rock, metal or whatever you throw at them. they are very versitile sticks and just have a great solid feel when you start playing. i had mine for the better part of a year and im getting some more. some other sticks make me be in a certain mood and then i get locked there but these sticks don't do that. do yourself a favor and get these great sticks!!!
