Vater Hickory Los Angeles Power 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.

Similar grip as 5B but with 1/2″ extra length. The “big brother” to Power 5A.

“Vater drumsticks…why! Well, since the family has been at it for over 50 years, they have a damn good idea about what works, and what doesn’t! No B.S., just great sticks! The Power 5B model has the perfect balance of weight, length, and strength for how I play…I can’t recommend it enough!” – Atom Willard [Against Me!]

“Vater Power 5B: Sturdy, dependable, perfect. Why would I use anything else?” – Jason Pierce [Our Lady Peace]

“No matter how hard I play, the Vater nylon tips won’t break or fly off. It’s nice to be confident in sticks that they won’t break apart right away. Vater sticks are the most durable and consistent I’ve used!” – Branden Steineckert [Rancid]
