The thinnest stick in Vic Firth's entire catalog! Built with great balance in mind, making it light and easy to play. L=16", Dia.=.490".

Developed for the player who is looking for ultimate rebound on the drum and ride cymbal, the American Jazz® line is comprised of six models which feature a long taper in the shaft for that great feel! The neck specifications are sizeable enough to create dark cymbal sounds, and the small tear drop tip keeps everything in focus.

Things You Will Get:

  • Drumsticks

great choice when need intensity at lower volume


allows for fast and intense playing without high volume on the cymbals due to small bead



All the finesse with no baggage


I'm no stranger to Vic Firth sticks and mallets as I have been a part of their educational specialist team since 2009. This stick in particular was a specific choice to use for a specific situation. The AJ6 hickory wood tip stick is almost one of the smallest tipped and tapered stick (if not the most?) and allows for differences in feel, touch, and volume. I feel that this stick allows me to play with the same approach but also alleviates the corresponding volume that would normally accompany a larger diameter and longer stick. The weight is considerably cut and the shoulder/neck has a long taper. I personally prefer little longer sticks and like a little more weight so if you're not used to these types of sticks, one may struggle a little at first getting used to the weight. Otherwise these are great implements first jazz, light combo work, theater, or any use deemed fit.



I will buy them again


I continue to buy these because I love them
