PERFECT
Eddie Shoestring, 16.10.2019
You cant go wrong with these Vic Firths sticks.

For me they are the absolute classic to go for.

They last long, have a great feel/grip to them and have an absolute amazing sound.

Vic Firth - brand for quality
22.12.2016
Really great sticks. I stick to mainly these now.
Not too light, not too heavy.
I love the teardrop-shaped tips as they are a little bit longer than the usual round tip. That allows greater variation of sound when hitting cymbals as You can hit them with the end of the tip to create a sharper sound or (the best way in my opinion) hit them flat with the whole side of the tip to create a warmer tone.
It's easy to play silently as well as loudly with force, kind of a hybrid if You ask me.
Good if the music You play is dynamic.

The benchmark...
conlondf, 13.08.2019
I'm just a new drummer... and as so, have tried a bunch of different sticks; sizes, woods, weights... I ALWAYS come back to these... in a blind test, these won HANDS DOWN... and my drum teacher also said, simply "can't go wrong with VIC FIRST 5Bs"

Very durable, and a great sound
Dylan Z, 28.05.2018
I've recently moved up to 2B sticks, but they are still Vic Firth American Classics. They might be a bit more pricey than other sticks, but sticks that cost half as much (the Vic Firth Nova range, for example) won't last half as long as these will. Also keep in mind you get a worse sound from sticks that are very worn down.
