Vic Firth American Classic

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 read more 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.

"Great sticks!"
Overall: 4.5 out of 5 stars
Being a novice drum player Vic Firth is all I've ever purchased. Unfortunately, I had no idea about ZZ Sounds! therefore I'm quite sure I've been overpaying!Hard for me to tell you how long they will last a professional drummer? All I know is they're perfect for me. They feel well balanced within my grip, and I've had success with both the 5A and 5B. Please keep in mind as a novice drummer I'm pretty hard on the sticks especially when I miss the skins, and actually hit the side of the snare or toms!! Sticks are nicked on the very outside of both sets, but still work fine! Bottom line is price, & durability make these an easy option for me.
