If you've never tried 3A drum sticks and want to give them a shot, you're definitely in the right section to spring into action. From Vic Firth to Vator to Zildjian, this catalog is jam-packed with the most respected drum stick manufacturers offering their own size 3A drum stick pairs. For those who aren't familiar with "A" sticks, they were originally designed for orchestra applications; they were given the letter "A" for the simple reason that William F. Ludwig, Sr. preferred how it printed to the letter "O". Compared to other "A" sticks, 3A drum sticks are longer than 5As and 7As. They're powerful, well-balanced and may very well be the perfect sticks to match your style.

Honestly, any one of the options on this page are worth your attention, but starting with the popular sellers is always a safe way to kick off your search. For example, the Vic Firth 3-Pair American Classic hickory drum sticks have a bold design and deep, back-cut tips that help to deliver a full sound and intensified cymbal response. Or how about the Regal Tip hickory drum sticks: boasting a formulated grip for a more comfortable hold and crafted from top-grade US hickory, these sticks are a great choice for anyone who wants to try size 3A drum sticks.

Innovative Percussion is another well-known brand that offers an excellent pair of 3A drum sticks. Constructed with a traditional teardrop tip that's been favored by drummers for more than 100 years, the Legacy Series 3A drum sticks have a weighty feel and are very versatile; simply put, they're ideal for a wide variety of genres and applications.

When you get right down to it, every pro-level percussionist will tell you that trying as many different drum sticks as possible is the best way to discover your strongest playing traits. Whether you've never tried Size 3A drum sticks before or have been using them for years, this selection is loaded with models to suit every budget - so without hesitating any further, jump into your options and take your pick!
