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.

        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
