Nice feel
dafNou 23.09.2022
First of all, I am a beginner and this was my very first pair of drumsticks I bought. So far it feels very nice and natural to hold (compared with the ones that came along with my MPS-850 set). Even though I have small hands these feel amazing when holding and playing

I
The "default" drumstick
Ike 30.10.2014
To me, the Vic Firth 5A American Classics are the standard of drumsticks. These are well-balanced, well-matched, great sounding drumsticks. As a drummer of small stature with hands that are on the small size, I find these sticks to be of just the right size, both in length and diameter, and weight for general playing. The bead of the stick also gives a good, clear sound on the cymbals. For slower, heavier songs I prefer a 5B or other bigger model, but for faster stuff and for lighter playing that requires less volume, these are great.

On the negative side, I find that while these sticks hold up well even under fairly heavy playing with constant rimshot backbeats, they're not as durable as e.g. Pro-Mark's equivalent 5A model (though I've never had a Vic 5A snap on me within minutes of starting playing, as has happened with some other sticks). The wood tips also have a tendency to chip, so they may not be intact at the end of a 50-minute set.

Feels great for beginners
ToothsomeTommy 09.01.2022
I just started drum lessons and have been researching sticks that I can start practising on my own with and would last me for a while. It has been about 2 months now, and I honestly love how it feels in my hand when it hits the drum pad. I believe the rebound effect has something to do with how the tips are crafted, and it has been great for learning from mistakes. Highly recommended!
