Vater Hickory Drumsticks
Cut from solid hickory to better absorb shock when playing, these Vater sticks come in a variety of sizes and tip materials to fit every player's need.
Hickory is the most popular wood used for making drumsticks. Hickory is denser, heavier and more rigid than Maple. Hickory can also absorb a great amount of shock, which reduces hand and wrist fatigue. Dark, or "brown" hickory, is found closer to the tree's center and is slightly denser and heavier than "white" hickory.
