Vic Firth Steve Gadd 70th Collection
By Vic Firth
8/4/2015 9:35:00 AM

To commemorate Steve’s 70th birthday milestone, The Steve Gadd Band will release their second album entitled, 70 STRONG. Vic Firth will celebrate this occasion as well by launching limited edition products including the new Gadd Padd and Steve’s signature sticks and brush with new design features.

One of the most influential drummers of all time, Steve Gadd set a new standard in contemporary drumming techniques and performance, and in doing so launched a thousand imitators. Steve has recorded countless legendary drum tracks like; " Aja," "Fifty Ways to Leave Your Lover" and "Late in the Evening" and with artists such as James Taylor, Eric Clapton, Paul Simon, Chick Corea, Joe Cocker, Dave Matthews, Paul McCartney, Steely Dan, among many many others.

 

STEVE GADD WIRE BRUSH (SSGWB)

Years ago, Steve and Vic solved the age-old problem of wire brushes snagging on new coated heads by slightly angling the wires in the playing end. Steve has refined the design once more with a new angle that allows the wires to better glide across the head, providing a smoother sweep and a velvet swish! Additionally, the retractable pull-rod now includes a third crimp that offers the player an enhanced setting capability. Like the Gadd Padd & sticks, these brushes are labeled with the special commemorative 70th birthday logo! Spread = 5", Dia = .530"

STEVE GADD (SSG)

Featuring a new and improved black finish and labeled with the special commemorative 70th birthday logo in eye-popping chrome! This classic barrel tip stick was the first Vic Firth signature stick and remains one of the world’s most popular models! L = 15 3/4", Dia = .550"

GADD PADD (PADSG)

The Gadd Padd features a 3/16" thick black silicone rubber pad, mounted to a round 8" sturdy wooden base. This single sided pad features a non-skid rubber base and is decorated with the special commemorative 70th birthday logo. Built to Steve’s desired specifications, this pad travels easily for the player on the go.
