From the very beginning, Vater's main goal was to produce the best drumsticks and percussion accessories in the world. Because of this strong passion, they've earned themselves a place in the hearts of today's greatest drummers. Top recording artists like Josh Freese, Chad Smith and Steward Copeland are all proud endorsers of Vater products, and it's easy to understand why when you look at the many top selling and highly recommended drum and percussion products throughout their extensive catalog. From cymbal clamps and fasteners to ear plugs, drum brushes, practice pads and more, Vater has everything you need to make it to the top.
As mentioned, Chad Smith is a huge fan of Vater's family of products. So much in fact, that he has teamed up with Vater to bring you his signature Funkblaster drumsticks. Extremely functional and durable, the Vater Chad Smith Signature Funkblasters have acorn-shaped tips and are made of hickory, making them perfect for playing heavy and solid. For those who need to practice in silence, the Vater Drum Set Mute Pad Pack consists of pads in various sizes, and designed from non-slip rubber for realistic rebound.
