The latest drop from Vic Firth includes uniquely designed sticks by Vic Firth Artists and a hybrid Rute/drumstick that offers unparalleled versatility.
Designed in partnership with Vic Firth Artist and world-renown drumming educator Mike Johnston, the American Classic NE-1 was crafted for players everywhere in their journey. With a longer taper, a diameter between a 5A and 5B, and a modified barrel tip, the NE-1 is a stick that will get out of your way, and allow you to focus on developing your skill behind the kit.
Crafted to match the power and versaility of Vic Firth Signature Artist, Nate Smith, the new Nate Smith Signature Series drumstick is slightly thinner than a 7A in the grip, with added lengh and a medium taper for a smooth response and impeccable balance. Perfect for sitting right in the pocket.
Finally, Vic Firth is proud to introduce the Rute-X rods, a hybrid stick that has the feel and response of a drumstick, with the volume control and alternative sounds of a rod product. The Vic Firth Rute-X rods offer versatility, solid rimshots, and cross sticking that you just can't get with traditional rods. Available in 4 models: light gauge, medium gauge, and heavy gauge premium birch, and a durable poly synthetic.
