Vic Firth American Classic 8D Drum Sticks
Vic Firth’s 8D sticks are basically 7As with extra length making them feel more significant in the hand than 7A sticks (which can sometimes feel like toys.) The small size is very appropriate for Jazz music because it keeps movements small and controlled, allowing you to really play out during fills without letting the volume get out of hand. The teardrop tip sounds great on the ride cymbal, especially on the snare drum and these sticks work great for heavy hitters looking to lighten their sound for Jazz music. More durable than most thin sticks, with the Vic Firth name you know you’re getting nothing but quality and consistency.
