If you want to practice anytime anywhere,these are for you. They easily fit any drumstick, put them on your favorite sticks and you are ready to practice on any surface silently and without damaging it (I put them in slightly damaged sticks so you don't need to use a new pair of sticks for them). If you like to warm up before gigs and don't want to carry a pad (we have enough to carry already), these will work perfectly for a good warm up (I have an electronic version of Stick Control on my phone, which I use for warm up with these tips). I have used the Tama silent tips before and they are also great, but these ones have a better feel in my opinion. I am off next week to Argentina where I am playing a gig, and the Vic Firth practice tips are first on my list of things to bring. Beats carrying a practice pad. Also, they come in a two pack, which means you receive two pairs of tips (a nice surprise since I was expecting only one pair, making this a great deal. You can leave one pair at home and carry one with you. They can also be used as mallets by the way. Great product!

            Anything can be a practice pad now! And they make playing my home electric kit (that is only used for practice; not a fan of electrics in general) feel more authentic, without that thwacky sound and uncomfortable reverberation in the arms from hitting such a hard surface. I'm thinking about seeing how they'd sound on a cajon, for funsies. :0)

                Anything can be a practice pad. I don't know why these didn't come out years ago. Pop them on your favorite sticks and slam away on anything without marking up your furniture or countertops. They provide great feedback much like a solid stick on a tom or snare.

                    Comments about Vic Firth Universal Practice Tips 2-Pack:

                    These things are absolutely awesome. I actually thought about inventing something like this years ago. Not for using in place of a practice pad, but for a way to make sticks play softer on the drum set yet still have articulation. Sort of like something in between sticks and dowel rods. Anyway, these are a must have because you really can play on any surface without hurting it and they do have decent rebound. You get 4 tips per pack, enough to do two pairs of sticks.

                      This product is very helpful. I am a percussionist at my symphonic band and marching band at high school and being able to practice rudiments or any part anywhere is a huge luxury. They fit on all sticks I own. May have some trouble in marching sticks. Can easily fit in something as small as 5A also. Overall I would highly recommend this!

                        Comments about Vic Firth Universal Practice Tips 2-Pack:

                        First I bought the Vic Firth "Chop Out" sticks in 5B, and they are great and I'll review them on their page, but I found that I also wanted the benefits of the rubber tips to use with any of the sticks in my collection. It's nice to practice with the stick you're used to, but also good with something different; thick or thin or specialty dim's. These tips allow you to "go to town" on virtually any surface, and although not silent, they're about as loud as any rubber practice pad, but no pad required!
                        They also make a noticeable difference when playing my electronic drum pads; I like that they're softer than wood or nylon tips against the rubber heads on e-drums and I think produce less wear. Also pretty good for some percussion instruments with rugged heads, and they produce a unique sound on acoustic drums but there you might as well use your normal sticks.
                        Low priced and well made, and so far they've stayed on the tips of my sticks, no matter how hard I hit the arm of the chair! Hard to go wrong....

                              These practice tips are great. Vic Firth has done it again by making an awesome product. These tips are great to practice with everywhere and anywhere. The tips also create different effects on cymbals, and various other instruments. These tips will fit virtually any Drumstick that is not for marching. These are a very highly recommended product every drummer/percussionist should own.
