The Vic Firth American Classic Extreme X5AN Nylon Tip Drumsticks increase the power and reach of their coveted American Classic 5AN sticks, making them better than ever before.

Select hickory sticks

The X5AN 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 diameter of the stick establishes a reassuringly generous feel in the hand, 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.

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.

Injection-moulded nylon tip

The X5AN nylon tip replaces the standard wood tip, offering a brighter response when striking skins and cymbals. Thanks to their pioneering injection moulding process, the nylon is fused with the wood to prevent unwanted chipping of the tip or cause for it to fly off. 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.
