Last longer, but feel unusual

09.06.2016
Each to their own when it comes to sticks and rods etc. but having bought these a few times, I'm not sure I would again. The big plus is they last far longer than usual rods due to the plastic casing, and can be used for heavy playing too without falling apart. Precise at the beginning.
But after a gig or two, I find they feel unnatural compared to normal wooden rod dowels, and soon enough the weight can become very uneven resulting in a heavier handle feeling when playing.
I also find that the tightening strips tend to move too freely by themselves up and down the stick especially if sweat is added in. Tape always seems to be needed to keep things in place. When the dowels and plastic are let out to create a brush-like fan, personally I find it just makes things even messier in terms of sound and control.
Nice idea for a longer lasting acoustic style stick, but needs more development.

Short distances are a winner

Drummerfrosch, 19.09.2011
I have to admit, it was a while ago when I got the VATER ACOUSTIC STICKS. At the beginning I was very satisfied. From the stick came a good sound, that's all I wanted.

But over time, pretty much everything has changed: The rubbers that hold the brittle and hardened plastic strips together became just as brittle and either tore off, or stretched so far that they just say goodbye while playing.
Furthermore, this stick does not give a rebount, which makes it very hard to play. From the beginning so beautiful sound quickly developed a toneless "Pong" on the drums. And the hard plastic strips are not really good for skins :(

I separated from the Father ACOUSTICS. I'll probably buy the Proven Hot Rods again.
