In my nearly 30 years of drumming I have never found a better stick than the Vic Firth SBR. These sticks are longer and thicker than a standard 5A but still light enough for jazz and acoustic applications. The unique taper and tip design give these sticks an incredible feel with amazing rebound off the drums and cymbals. There has never been another drummer quite like Buddy Rich and there has never been another stick quite like the Vic Firth SBR. -Alex
Each Vic Firth Signature Series model was conceived though extensive discussion and research with the finest drummers from a variety of musical styles. The designs are a reflection of their musical requirements in terms of balance, feel, sound projection and cymbal color. All sticks are in hickory. All colored sticks feature a clear natural tip.A modified 5A with a larger tip, neck and shoulder.
