Vater Percussion 1A Drumsticks
Vater’s 1A drumsticks feature a 17 length which is surprisingly well-balanced and doesn’t feel top heavy. Feeling similar to 5B drumsticks but bigger, these sticks can produce a lot of volume with little effort. Their late taper withstands rim-shots well, creating explosions of sound on crash cymbals. While these sticks feel very large in the hand, they’re still light enough for fast playing. The acorn-shaped tip produces an enormous sound on the toms and won’t chip easily. Personally I’ve never broken a Vater 1A and they hold their grip very well.
