The Vic Firth American Classic 5BNVG Nylon Tip 5B Grip Sticks feature the traditional nylon tear drop tip that provide a little extra brightness and durability. The 5B has a slightly larger diameter than a 5A and that makes them ideal for playing rock, concert band or for practice. This model also features the non slip finish of the Vic Grip coating.
The Vic Grip coating is a anti-slip coating made from an eco-friendly, water-based urethane. It provides comfortable slip-resistant grip and is specially formulated to be extremely durable and an ideal choice for players who prefer an enhanced grip on their drumsticks. Look for the red coating and put a stop to slippage!
The American Classic nylon tip models mirror their wood tip counterparts, so drummers can switch fro the richness of a wood tip to the brilliance of nylon without sacrificing feel and balance. And with Vic Firth's "tip locking" manufacturing process, they won't chip or fly off - guaranteed!The nylon tip is similar in size and shape to the 2B, providing enhanced performance and a feel closer to the original wood tip model. Nylon tips are the most durable and brightest sounding on cymbals.
