The "default" drumstick
Ike, 30.10.2014
To me, the Vic Firth 5A American Classics are the standard of drumsticks. These are well-balanced, well-matched, great sounding drumsticks. As a drummer of small stature with hands that are on the small size, I find these sticks to be of just the right size, both in length and diameter, and weight for general playing. The bead of the stick also gives a good, clear sound on the cymbals. For slower, heavier songs I prefer a 5B or other bigger model, but for faster stuff and for lighter playing that requires less volume, these are great.

On the negative side, I find that while these sticks hold up well even under fairly heavy playing with constant rimshot backbeats, they're not as durable as e.g. Pro-Mark's equivalent 5A model (though I've never had a Vic 5A snap on me within minutes of starting playing, as has happened with some other sticks). The wood tips also have a tendency to chip, so they may not be intact at the end of a 50-minute set.

Comfortable abd durable
AA, 12.04.2018
These sticks are really durable compared to any other sticks ive tried across many different brands. 1 set can last me up to a year, which is particularly impressive compared to alternative sets of drumsticks. I also particularly like the weight and grip comfort of these sticks, more so than my last Nova sticks.
