Vic Firth Concert Percussion
Professional concert percussionists are well aware of what Vic Firth can provide to improve the sound of an orchestra ensemble. For example, just take a look at the Tim Genis Concert Snare Stick. Made with input from the principal timpanist of the legendary Boston Symphony Orchestra, this stick has been crafted from persimmon, which is known for its ability to produce a slightly darker and more full-bodied sound than wood. Durable and powerful, the Tim Genis Concert Snare Stick is everything you'd except from one of the brightest talents in orchestral percussion. Another choice with some impressive cred to back it up is the Gary Burton Yarn Keyboard Mallets. Yarn-wound with rattan handles, these mallets are ideal for any vibraphonist. Plus, they're designed to the exact specifications of Gary Burton, a major figure in American jazz percussion, and educator at the Berklee College of Music.
Since we're on the subject of educational institutions, you'll be happy to know that Vic Firth also offers packages for students, and the EP2 Intermediate Education Pack is perfect for any budding percussionist with big aspirations. Featuring SD2 sticks, SD1 sticks, an M3 mallet, an M6 mallet, and a T3 timpani mallet, this educational package contains all of the necessary tools to help students begin their musical journey on the right foot.
Of course, Vic Firth's catalog goes well beyond the three items mentioned above, and as a percussionist, you owe it to yourself to check out everything Vic Firth has in store for you. After all, with a name like Vic Firth, you can be sure that any one of their concert percussion choices will please you, and anyone lucky enough to hear you in action.
