Vater Manhattan 7A Drum Sticks
Vater’s Manhattan 7A drumsticks are longer than most 7A drumsticks but still have a light Jazz feel. Their round tips are different than most 7A sticks allowing for detailed snare playing, sound great on the ride cymbal and they help to smooth out buzz rolls common in Jazz fills. They have a mellow sound on the toms and seem to embrace the head with each stroke; the impact doesn’t feel as harsh, but you still feel a strong sense of control.
These drumsticks are less flexible than most Jazz sticks so they’re ideal for technical players. Vater sticks are some of the most durable drumsticks available and mine seem to last longer than other brands with their tips not chipping as much. The longer size and round tip makes these some of the most unique drumsticks on the market.
