The Vic Firth American Classic X55B Extreme Hickory Drumsticks, Wood Tip are a heavier alternative to the American Classic 5B drumstick - perfect for drummers seeking more weight and power. Featuring an increased shaft thickness and length, added leverage and power gives you a great overall feel. And, made by Vic Firth - you know you're getting your money's worth.
A medium taper produces a balanced rebound, faithfully executing your technique, whilst the wooden tip bring out the warmth of your drums, pronouncing the low-end. Made from a special hickory that is ideal for drumsticks, they are durable, reliable and musical. You can use them for months because they undergo a rigorous manufacturing process that goes above and beyond expectations. The ones that don't make it are used to heat the kiln.
