Is there better than Vic Firth?

26.12.2015
Stick choice is a very personal thing, what works for one won't necessarily work for another.

But whatever stick size you use you can be assured of quality when buying Vic Firth. They are always tonally matched and I have never once had a bent stick when buying Vic Firth.

My absolute favourite sticks for balance are the Zildjian Travis Barker signature sticks. But Zildjian sticks have never lasted longer than 5 minutes for me, they seem so brittle, especially the tips.

I've got a pair of these Vic Firths in my stick bag that have been there for over a year and they're still absolutely solid and going strong. Our band gigs every month or so and we practice every week with myself playing daily, yet I only destroyed 3 pairs of sticks all year. I've broken cymbal stands from how hard I can hit!

I did have one pair that went unusually quickly, brand new and one snapped half way through our first set, but that has been a one off and I've been using Vic Firth sticks for years!

Top all that off with the usual Thomann service and these sticks are a real winner. It would take something special for me to change sticks now!

What is this?
Using our Live Video Consulting service, you can visit our departments live and have us demonstrate any piece of equipment you want to see. You are perfectly free to ask questions of our representatives or give them instructions. And don't worry: we can hear, but not see you.

Live Video Consulting is available for selected products. Whenever a sales representative is available, an icon which allows you to make us of the service will appear on the product page
How does that work?
You require a PC or Mac with a microphone and an up-to-date browser. It's best to use the current version of either Chrome or Firefox. Before initiating the connection, your browser will ask your permission to access your microphone.
Possible problems
We are still in the testing phase with this system, and our representatives are still finding out how to give you the best possible experience. Therefore, it may happen that we do not understand you (please speak clearly in either German or English only), that equipment is being tried out by other customers temporarily, or that there are problems with the connection. Please do not hesitate to give us feedback whenever anything like this happens, so that we may learn from this and improve our service.
