Top Ten Best Drumstick Makescunningstunts
The Top TenXW
Vic Firth hand-whittled the first sticks himself from bulkier sticks and sent these prototypes to a wood turner in Montreal. The two prototypes that he sent would become the SD1 and SD2, the first two models of sticks ever manufactured by the Vic Firth, Inc.. As Firth himself states: "It came out of necessity not of imagination or my ability to start a company.
Today, the Vic Firth, Inc. product line has grown from the SD1 and SD2 to approximately 300 products in its catalog, and the company manufactures 12 million sticks a year. -
brilliant. These are what I use - to be precise the american classic... the best
By far the best drumsticks in the world. I know it's only my opinion but in that opinion after playing drums for over 50 years and having tried every stick on the market, Vic firth are the best made, balanced, weight, always consistent. I use several models, depending on the gig at hand----Steve Gadd model----Steve Smith model---Extreme 5A---SD-1 Bolero---and I use the new 5B Rubber Tip Chop Builder and also the Thomas Lang model for the practice pad.

I have had quite a few different brands of drumsticks but my favourite have to be Vic Firth. I love the feel and the way the sound they make. If you're looking for good drumsticks VIC FIRTH are what you're looking for. Don't take any substitutesV34 Comments
promark drumsticks company was one of the first drum stick companies in the USA. Founded by drummer Herb Brochstein, they were also one of the first companies to successfully market oak drumsticks in America. Promark now sells it's popular drumsticks (made of oak, maple, and hickory) to over 100 countries. -
It really depends on the Pro-Mark sticks you get, I am a very big fan of the Joey Jordison and Chris Adler Signature Series. The Joey Jordison and Chris Adler sticks are made from Hickory, I find this the best type of wood for drumming as they are strong, solid and are quality sticks that are really durable.
These sticks are so durable, and they are made in my hometown!
Very durable and versatile, love them.V14 Comments
Other than cymbals, the Avedis Zildjian Company produces products such as drum sticks and other drum accessories. The Artist Series drum sticks allow these endorsers to personalize their drum sticks, and these sticks are sold to the public. -
Even though I am a Sabian user, and it's almost sac-religious to have I both of these. I love Zildjian sticks. I love the different kinds of sticks they have. Like the anti-vibes. It allows you to have those bigger sticks, but without losing speed, and the stick like it says, don't vibrate at all.
Great balance and light feel. They provide the option of all sizes and tip choices. Used by many of the best drummers these are the top choice for your next pair of sticks
Great selection of sticks. You can almost customize them with whatever color and stick design and tips and woods. Great sticksV9 Comments
While other "stick" companies also manufacture products beyond the drumming world, Vater's undivided focus is to give you, the drummer, the highest quality drum sticks, specialty sticks and drum accessories in the world. -
They have been around the longest, There sticks feel amazing and sound amazing too, They have lasted longer than any other sticks I've had, they are honestly the best sticks I've ever used
Vater Drumsticks for me make the best kind of drumstick that fits my expectations of a perfect drumstick. The best, response, tone, and feel of a drumstick I've ever used.
Best durability!V14 Comments
Ahead drumsticks are a product of Easton and distributed by Big Bang Distribution. They are quite unique and different than most drumsticks in the world. They have an aluminum core and replaceable plastic sleeves and plastic tips. This allows them to outlast normal wooden drumsticks by a long shot. Some would even say that they never wear out because you can constantly replace the plastic sleeves or tips with new ones instead of having to buy a whole new set of drumsticks every time. -
These sticks are amazing! Lots of fun to use and produce lots of power. Great for drum roles or hard cymbal hits.
I love playing with these sticks but MAN they're expensive! However one pair lasts you a very long time so it is worth it I guess.
Best sticks ever I've had mine foreverV7 Comments
Light weight & very comfortable...
The first Hot Sticks were created in 1979 and combined many of the features that would establish Hot Sticks reputation as leaders in drumsticks innovation. Not only were the original Hot Sticks the first to offer a variety of brightly colored models, they were the only major drumsticks that incorporated a proprietary dry grinding process to protect the integrity of the wood during production.
Just got the Alex Van Halen signature model by regal tip! Great sticks that are un breakable!
Regal tip has a unique feel I like the 8a and have used them for years great sticks
Come on! 12? Seriously? Regal Tip has been around for as long, if not longer that Vic Firth and Pro-Mark. Much as I love my Vater 5bs, the Alex Van Halen signature sticks are my new faces, due to their length and strength (rhyming, lol! ). Sure, maybe they aren't used as much nowadays, but they still remain the best and their quality and dedication has never waned. Alex Van Halen, Brian Tichy, Tommy Clufetos, Daniel Adair, Jason Sutter, Jeff Porcaro, and (formerly) Stewart Copeland, too many names to count, have all used Regal Tip. They have stood the test of time and should be higher. Plain and simple.
Although in my opinion Vic Firth makes the best drum set sticks, Innovative Percussion is by far the best company for sticks/mallets used to play any other type of drum. Innovative Percussion dominates it's competitors when it comes to marching snare sticks, marching bass mallets, tenor mallets, concert snare sticks, specialty drum sticks, mallets of all sorts, etc.
If your a concert percussionist. You use innovative percussion. No questions asked
Innovative Percussion number 13?! They by far make the best drum sticks for everything
Try them out! I just got an invader pad and they sound great on it!V5 Comments
The colored drumsticks are made of Lexan�, a heat-resistant plastic widely used in today's business equipment and automobile products. It's tough construction offers great durability and they're perfect for novelty songs or showcasing a drum solo. -
Same pitch and try to use it to see what is the difference to others...V1 Comment
Motorhead? Saxon? Arch Enemy anyone? A lot of great drummers actually use these sticks. It's amazing that more of the well known drummers don't.
While I frankly prefer Vater, Mikkey Dee of Motorhead has a signature model with Wincent which are killer!
I wish they sold their sticks to America. I really want the Tomas Haake modle stick. I used the Vic Firth SHAA modle (Tomas Haake) and their best sticks for me as a player. I don't know what it is but these and only these seem to work better for me. Their classic metal sticks are pretty good.V2 Comments
Carbostick is a brand of drum sticks, it produces stick made up of carbon fibre, giving them a lot of resistance and a long life. Their cost is higher than wooden sticks, but the investment is gained over the duration of the sticks. -
Actually really a line under Vic Firth, but they are almost a different make by themselves. Before I used Vader as my main brand, I still have my pair of Nova's, that I still occasionally use, that I really enjoy. Even though they are made by Vic Firth, they are unlike any of their other sticks and are almost a whole separate deal.V1 Comment
Mark my words, these guys will keep rising to the top. Arian Van Weesenbeek of Epica ad MaYaN uses these, and they're great. They may be new and unknown for now, but it's only a matter of time before they're being used to bang heads everywhere!
Good and cheap, especially 2b
Each stick is Calculated, then the precise weight needed is added to achieve a balance point for maximum performance, resulting in a faster, better feeling stick that eliminates stick shock. This concept can be applied to improve all drumsticks. RB Drumsticks Immanently improves all drummers playing.
