Vic Firth American Classic

read more 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.

"The Only Sticks I Buy"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
Considering I purchased these sticks during the Coronavirus outbreak, and they indeed shipped and arrived in two days, that is pretty amazing. As well, with Vic Firth being the go-to stick brand of band programs in Texas, I figured there has to be a reason for that. And there is, as these sticks last so long and perform better, longevity-wise, per capita than any other stick I know. Thank you, zZounds, for providing a wonderful first-purchase experience.
