The American Classic® line combines tradition and Vic Firth style. With bold designs for fuller sound, the Classics are turned from select hickory – a dense wood with little flex for a more pronounced sound. Hickory is also capable of withstanding a great deal of shock, making it highly durable.

The wood tips are deeply back-cut for intensified cymbal response. The nylon tips are similar in size and shape to their wood counterparts, providing enhanced performance and a feel closer to their original wood tip models. Nylon tips are the most durable and brightest sounding on cymbals.

Quality sticks

Comments about Vic Firth 5A American Classic Hickory Nylon Tip Drumsticks:

No wood sticks last forever. With that being said, I've only used Vic Firth sticks and don't see any reason to stray. I've always received straight matched sticks. As far as Sam Ash goes, the sticks shipped quickly and i had them within 3 days.

        Very bad sticks, Vic Firth sticks are a piece of trash, they break very easy and the nylon tip falls off the stick, Use Pro-mark, the best sticks of the worls, the best drummers play the best and that best is pro-mark, marco minneman, neil peart, ringo starr, joe morello, mike portnoy!

          Tough enough for metal but sensitive enough for jazz, this stick keeps its response level longer than most...love it
