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.

Surprisingly Unreliable Sticks


I have used several sizes of Vic Firth sticks in both hickory and maple and have found within an hour of practice or rehearsing the tips chip or break off completely, leaving a well bodied stick useless and uneven...I've tried several Vics over the year in several musical situations and have found them too unreliable to depend on during live performance.

best sticks ever


They are the best sticks I have ever used. I have played the same pair for two months and they have a ton of life in them.
