    Drumsticks VIC FIRTH 5A American Classic Teardrop Tip

     

    When you think of 5A drumsticks, there's one pair that comes to mind. The Vic Firth American Classic 5A Hickory Drumsticks. Not too light, thick, or heavy - just the right size to cover all styles. And, made by Vic Firth - so you know you're getting your money's worth.

    But why would you choose the Vic Firth 5A?

    They are made from a special hickory that is ideal for drums ticks. They are durable, reliable.

    You can use them for months because they undergo a rigorous manufacturing process that goes above and beyond expectations.

    The ones that don't make it are used to heat the kiln. The Vic Firth sticks aren't just another 5A, they are their own instrument. An instrument that has been the drummer's go-to choice for decades.

     

    The world’s #1 drumstick choice

    The Vic Firth 5A has probably been through more pro drummer’s hands than any other 5A out there on the market. That’s because no one else does sticks to the Vic Firth standard. When other sticks break, the Vic Firth 5A doesn’t even break a sweat. And that’s why everyone knows their name.

    Less stick-breaking mid-set means more time to groove in style.

     

    Backed up by science

    You know that drumsticks are more than just pieces of wood for hitting drums.

    There’s a lot of science to it. Working on a regular basis with the wood science department at the University of Maine, and several other scientific organisations, Vic Firth put the quality of your drumsticks at the forefront of their operation.

     

    It starts with the ideal hickory

    There are 14 kinds of hickory and only 4 are ideal for drumsticks.

    Vic Firth uses the best of those 4 to make the American Classic Hickory drumsticks.

     

    Then the vital first 6 steps of the manufacturing process

    Most drumstick companies pick up the manufacturing process after these steps. Vic Firth understand the importance of getting these stages right.

     

    1. Vic Firth purchases green squares of wood. This is fresh wood that hasn’t yet been dried. This allows Vic Firth to dry the wood themselves to achieve the desired result.
    2. The wood is cut to size. All wood is cut to meet strict standards of consistency.
    3. Dried in a kiln. This is a heat and humidity controlled room that allows Vic Firth to reduce moisture in the wood to the ideal level for drumsticks. In turn, this prevents sticks from warping.
    4. Cut down into squares. They are refined until perfectly uniform.
    5. The squares are then reduced gradually to dowels. Quality assured: They are weighed and measured using a laser to obtain consistent weight and profile.
    6. The dowels are then slowly reduced using a high-speed sanding process. For the first time, this is when the wood starts to resemble drumsticks!

    …And much more

    There are many more steps in producing the perfect pair of drumsticks, but these are the key steps that set Vic Firth apart as a leading drumstick manufacturer.

    After 10 more steps of careful honing, refining, and then finishing, you finally have your much endeared Vic Firth American Classic 5A drumsticks.

    No one else invests that much time and energy in creating the perfect pair of sticks.
