Big Savings on One of the World’s Leading Sticks

Vic Firth American Classic drumsticks are the choice of top players throughout the industry. Now you can save big with this value pack, which includes four pairs of Vic Firth American Classic 5As for the price of three!

From their precision manufacturing and matching methods to their spellbinding range of products, Vic Firth offers quality you can count on. These 5A Vic Firth American Classics are dried, formed, sanded, and finished in-house by Vic Firth’s wood experts. Their wood teardrop tips deliver a rich, musical sound on cymbals, and their medium tapers have a great balanced feel in the hands. Though they’re a fine option for rock, dance, or orchestral music, the American Classic 5As particularly shine for jazz and other low-volume applications.

About Vic Firth American Classic 5A Drumsticks Medium tapers balance power and speed

Drummers who play a range of musical styles will appreciate the tapered shaft of each Vic Firth American Classic 5A, which is balanced between the butt and tip for a great-feeling blend of flex and attack.

Teardrop tips offer a musical sound on cymbals

Vic Firth’s renowned teardrop tips are heralded by professional drummers everywhere for their musical definition on ride cymbals and hi-hats, which is neither too soft nor overpowering.

Crafted with care from select house-dried hickory

Every stick starts as an undried green square of select Southern US hickory. It's chosen for grain quality and appearance before it's dried in controlled, specially modified in kilns on-site, and shaped into the dowels that become your Vic Firth American Classics. This detailed process is just one of the reasons Sweetwater stands behind our Vic Firth drumsticks with confidence.

Mechanically certified straightness

Some drummers may remember the embarrassment of rolling their sticks across the glass counter of their local instrument store to check for straightness. You never have to suffer this indignity again when you buy Vic Firth American Classics: sticks that don’t meet Vic Firth’s straightness tolerances when rolled across a conveyer are discarded.

Weight matched for an even response across the kit

Sticks in each perfect pair of Vic Firth American Classic 5As are weighted within two grams of each other. This weight matching greatly reduces imbalances between the left and right hands, which is often felt when switching from traditional to open-handed technique or picking up sticks after a break.

Pitch matched for studio accuracy

Once sticks are sorted by weight, they’re then matched by pitch, within a quarter-tone of each other, to promote an even attack whatever hand you lead with. And since grain anomalies can cause multiple resonance peaks, sticks that don’t have a clear fundamental are discarded. This is critical for studio and live close-miking applications when pitches from the sticks themselves can influence what’s captured in the mics.
