As a professional percussionist with the Boston Symphony, Everett "Vic" Firth found himself disappointed in his performance and longing for a new kind of drumstick. Unsatisfied with the market offerings, Firth decided to design his own sticks with a dedication to expert craftsmanship and the highest quality materials. Although they were originally meant for personal use, his peers were soon clamoring for a set of their own. Hence, Vic Firth and his drumsticks were in business!
