Vater Hickory 5B Drum Sticks
Vater guarantees their sticks to be “straighter, more consistent and of higher quality than all other leading drumstick manufacturers”. Vater sticks typically have a higher moisture content than other drumsticks, which is intended to create more durable drumsticks, though this does result in a slightly heavier stick.
Very responsive, comfortable and balanced stick with acorn tip. Versatile stick.
“Vater makes the best sticks out there by far and if it wasn’t for them I’d just be air drumming!! I choose the 5B because it’s not to skinny and not too fat, I get the power and the speed that I need.” – Brann Dailor [Mastodon]
“Playing in arenas and stadiums I require a stick that can stand up to a full on beating. The Vater 5B is extremely durable and still maintains a fantastic feel.” – Jim Riley [Rascal Flatts]
“There’s only only stick that can deliver the Death Punch and it’s Vater! I need a stick that’s the perfect balance of weight, length and durability. The only one I’ve found that delivers is the Vater 5B.” -Jeremy Spencer [Five Finger Death Punch]
“The only stick that can stand up to the abuse night after night” – Kent Diimmel [In This Moment]
“My stick of choice has changed extremely little over my 25+ years as a drummer. The Vater 5B allows me enough girth for power and loudness while allowing just the right lightness for jazz and other dynamic playing.” – Claude Coleman [Ween/Eagles of Death Metal]
