The Vic Firth SHO5A Shogun Oak 5A Wood Tip Drumsticks features the traditional 5A design but constructed from a denser wood with a more rigid response than hickory. Japanese white oak provides added weight and power for a full drum sound and strong rhythmic projection.
The SHOGUN® series features the designs of the American Classic® 5A and 5B, the world’s most popular drumstick models! The hardness of the wood tip in oak creates a brighter cymbal sound and provides excellent definition during intricate ride patterns. This unique wood also produces an incredible cross-stick tone that really cuts through.
