What Drives Your Creativity?

Listening to a variety of music genres is the root from which my creativity and my understanding of music stems from. A variety that consists from jazz and fusion, to alternative rock and heavy metal.


Why do you choose Vic Firth?

What I love most about Vic Firth's American Classic 5A White and 5A DoubleGlaze is that these pairs of sticks feel like they belong right in my hands! They give me a great, easy and ergonomical drumming experience!
