The Vic Firth American Classic 3A is often overshadowed by more popular models but it’s really worth a look if you play rock, jazz or fusion music. It’s a little larger than a standard 5A but not quite as thick as a 5B and with a barrel tip rather than the more common teardrop design which is the standard on most American Classic models. -Alex
The Vic Firth American Classic 3A Hickory Wood Tip Drum Sticks feature a barrel tip that produces bright, articulate cymbal sounds. The 3A is a great stick for light rock and fusion.
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.
