Awesome Cheap Sticks
Kitapci 12.06.2014
I started off drumming playing with Vic Firth sticks, I then moved on to Vater stick as I found them to be more cheaper and more durable. Not too long after I found Vic Firth Nova in my local store and was curious as to why they were so cheap, the owner explained to me that they were sticks with visual defects and not defects with the stick itself so they paint them fully to cover it and call them Nova sticks.

The playing and durability is identical to the full Vic Firth sticks so I decided to purchase some and they did indeed feel identical even at less than half the price. While I like the full black coating, I found it to chip off and mark the drums or cymbals, but it does provide extra grip and cover visual defects, I think it might have been better if they covered it all except the tips.

Overall, they look pretty good, play very well, last just as long as regular sticks and are about the 3rd of the price. These are awesome.

I'm not a drummer and only use these occasionally when adding a bit of percussion to a recorded track. All in all they do the job perfectly. I can't comment on how they'd stand up to heavy use on a stage etc.

These sticks are great for anyone wanting professional feeling sticks on a budget. If I'm honest I struggle to notice the difference between these and the pro series Vic Firth sticks! They feel the same and seem to be just as good quality. I have to say I haven't played any gigs with them so I'm not sure if they would be as durable as Vic's top end sticks.

Low budget/ Hoge kwaliteit

De Vic Firth nova is een goedkope stick met een even goede kwaliteit als de duurdere vic firth sticks, dus waarom 14¤ ofzo betalen voor 1 set als je er 3 paar hebt voor 4¤ meer.

De telsom is rap gemaakt. De rode en gewone sticks geven niet af op de cymbalen, de zwarte doen dit wel een beetje maar dat houd mij als metal drummer niet tegen!

simpelweg hoge kwaliteit tegen een klein prijsje!
