Our Perspective

The Vic Firth American Classic 5B sticks have become a standard in the world of drumming.  These sticks work well for all types of amplified music and are a great choice for a player who wants something thicker and heavier than a standard 5A.  Versatility, durability and consistency have made these sticks a must have for any serious drummer.  -Alex

The Vic Firth American Classic 5B Hickory Wood Tip Drum Sticks feature a tear drop tip and slightly larger diameter than a 5A that makes them ideal for playing rock, concert band or for practice.

The American Classic line combines tradition and Vic Firth style. With bold designs for fuller sound, the Classics are turned from select hickory a dense wood with little flex for a more pronounced sound. Hickory is also capable of withstanding a great deal of shock, making it highly durable.The wood tips are deeply back-cut for intensified cymbal response.
