The Vic Firth American Classic series of sticks have been the first choice for many drummers for over 30 years, owing to their impressive endurance and superb responsiveness. The Extreme models offer half an inch greater length, improving reach and power with every hit.

Select hickory sticks

The X5B is designed and built using hickory, popular wood that is dense and with little flexibility to ensure a more pronounced sound. Not only that, but hickory boasts exceptional resilience, which makes it a highly durable wood to use that favours big-hitters. The .595-inch diameter of the stick is perfect for those who prefer a chunkier stick to get to grips with, whilst the medium taper offers the perfect balance between butt and tip. The stick is coated in a slender lacquer that ensures a smooth feel without the slippage, and ensures good resistance to moisture that guarantees consistency across the stick.

As noted, the Extreme model offer half an inch extra length, which not only increases reach but also offers superior striking power. All this without making any sacrifices with regard to playing balance.

Wooden tip

The X5B features a wood tip, which offers a fuller and warmer sound compared to that of a nylon tip. The tear drop tip design is designed to accommodate lightning fast, seamless performances no matter what style of music you perform from Jazz to Metal.

Vic Firth's process

Consistency and quality is everything when it comes to playing drums, and Vic Firth remain true to that ethos in the manufacturer of their sticks. By incorporating industry-leading processes, they guarantee that their sticks are free from warping from factory to your hands, undergoing a meticulous journey from tree to finished product. Not only that, but sustainability is a crucial ingredient in the stick making process, and every effort is made to replace trees and reuse water to minimise environmental impact.
