Customer Reviews

Can t go wrongExactly as expected5Worth a try!Not a bad pair of sticks. I use them mainly when I want a different sound from my cymbals or when I really want to hit the cymbal hard. Vic furth never disappoints.5Nice BalanceThey have some weight to them for the size, but feel great and are a good option for e-drums. Doesn't mark up my roland set and no vibration on e drums.5Sticks VERY slippery.By far the best balanced sticks I ve ever used in my 50 years of playing drums. The only negative is the white paint used over the entire length of the sticks, is VERY slippery. I had to buy a rosin bag to keep them from sliding out of my hands. I wish they made the same size, weight, & balanced sticks with a natural wood finish like all other regular sticks.4GREAT for MESH-HEAD E-KIT!I've been a drummer for over 50 years, (well over 50 years!), and most of my sticks were Pro-Mark. However, until April 2019, I've only owned and played acoustic kits. In fact, I stopped playing for about the last 10 years because..., well..., life happens.Anyway, I bought my first E-kit in April 2019, (Alesis Surge Mesh), which I've since added more toms, another kick bass and ride cymbal. I'm not going to review the Alesis Surge Mesh kit here but in short, if you don't want to go into the serious money, the Alesis Surge Mesh kit will deliver $1000 performance for under $700! Get it and you'll be glad you did!As for the Vic Firth Buddy Rich Sticks, I could not believe these would be a stick that Buddy Rich would use but for all I know, maybe they were. I would have guessed BR to go with a lighter, thinner stick, which is what I usually always used.Jazz and Big-Band being what it is, it would seem to make sense that a lighter stick would help toward speed and deal with longer rolls and playing time. However, I think that for all those previous years of that belief, I was wrong!The rolls I do with these sticks are faster and more distinct than they ever were with the lighter sticks. I have no hesitation saying that these sticks have certainly improved my playing.First, the Vic Firth BR sticks that I received were 16.3 inches long and my digital calipers show them to be .587 to .589 inches in diameter.They're a heavy stick, (I didn't have a good way to weigh them), and the first thought that I got when I picked them up was "Led Zepplinish", John Bonham, hard hitting. They're a 5B stick and actually had a good comfortable feel. I play a conventional grip, (some call it 'traditional grip'), and these felt right for that.I happened to buy a pair of Zildjian 5A wood sticks at the same time, which are smaller diameter and lighter. What I found out was the Vic Firth sticks are seriously the best sticks I've ever owned in all those years! As an older player, I need a longer warm up time and I'll start my excesses with the Zildjian 5A sticks for about 20 minutes.When I change to the Vic Firth BR sticks, I suddenly feel like my left and right hand rolls are on steroids! I'm able to do a much cleaner and crisper group of quads, trips, paradiddles and even do some wicked buzz-rolls I never was able to do before.The Zildjian 5A sticks create an isometric form of practice/exercise that then comes through when I go to the heavier Vic Firth stick and to that, I suggest that everyone give the concept a try, (assuming that you haven t already).I ve always been partial to nylon tip sticks because I like the sound they give on a ride cymbals or a pair of 15 Zildjian hats. Oh, I d move to a wooden tip when the music needed that but the sound of the tip on an E-kit pad really makes no difference.The wood tip sticks seem to make a louder, distracting, thud sound when I m playing through my amplifiers and there s a significant bounce difference between the wood and nylon tips when it comes to feel, (for acoustic and e-kits).The e-kit is what I have now and therefore, I found the nylon tip sticks to be my preference 99% of the time. Just as I mentioned earlier, the Vic Firth BR stick is heavier than what I was used to but apparently, this is exactly what I need now.The stick has great flex and performance for such a heavy weight and I couldn t believe how much better I could play Stevie Gadd s opening to 50 Ways to leave your lover .I recommend that anyone who s always looked at heavy sticks like something a Death Metal band would use, or like playing the drums with a pair of small baseball bats. Reconsider the way these sticks may help your chops and at least try these them out!One more thing, as someone who s well over 60, I can say that arthritis is a real thing and when I bought this e-kit, I was afraid I would be limited to single stroke rolls.I do have quite a bit of problems with arthritis in my hands and fingers, particularly but in fact, the use of my fingers and hands has gotten better and the arthritis doesn t seem to get in the way while I m playing!Those of you who may have had the same concerns and maybe even stopped playing because you thought it was not going to let you do what you used to do, all I can say is guess again!The heavier stick may be making up for some of the trouble I have in my hands, I don t know for sure, but I can say that I ve never played as good back before I stopped, as I do now, and that s a fact.I ve since bought two more pair just to keep them around if I need them. Sometimes these things come out for sale and then suddenly, you can find them anymore or you have to buy a used pair, so I like to make sure I have backups.10-Stars!Rich5great for the pricegreat overall, I use on my electric drum set.5WHOAH BUDDY!Let me start by revealing my huge disappointment with these sticks: After using them for nearly 3 months I still can't play like Buddy Rich! (I guess that's to be expected. I never really could play like Dave Weckl when I used his sticks either.) Now that I've gotten that off my chest, let me say these are terrific all around sticks - a little fat, a little long and a lot white - but almost oddly effective. Great balance and leverage enabling the drummer to increase striking power without sacrificing touch. (That's saying an awful lot if you think about a second or two.)Now I've read a few complaints about the white wood tips marking up cymbals. (Maybe so, but I'm a nylon tip guy so I don't really care!) Also, extra heavy hitters and those who live life on the rims - you're always going to go through sticks like proverbial through a goose so stop your crying, (or learn to love aluminum.) The bottom line with these sticks is I don't think it really matters what style of music you play - from traditional jazz to heavy metal, I think these babies would work great.5These are very nice drum sticks!These are very nice drum sticks!5Heavy and ThickI was Expecting some type of 5A Mixed with a 7A. Well if you re expecting that, don t get it. They Are Verg thick and heavy compared to other drum sticks. They do give your drum set a little extra power because of the weight and tip of the drum sticks. Pretty good though and I still use them for outside playing4Nicely balanced, and weighted. Perfect for eDrums.Bought these for use with my Alesis Studio Pro e-kit, and they are perfect for this use. Only downer is they don't make you play like the man himself.5
