The gradual taper and extra length allows Cyrus to choke up on his grip without compromising any sense of response, balance, speed or comfort from the stick. The barrel-style tip gives full drum sounds and defined ride cymbal tones.
Hickory Chad Smith Signature Wood Tip
Same grip as the standard 5B with a sturdier taper. Great for heavy rock and riding a cymbal bell. Classic acorn-shaped tip. Wood only.
David's new DSK Tour is a scaled down version of his original DSK model. The shorter length provides a "quick" feel when going around the kit, while the heavy shoulder provides outstanding durability for aggressive live performances
A lengthy, but comfortable, stick that features a very fast beefy taper for some added weight up top. This allows for a powerful throw and solid impact that is perfect for an aggressive drumming style. The DSK's large and rounded barrel-shaped nylon tip is great for crispy clean hi-hat and ride cymbal tones. Hickory. Length= 17 Diameter= .590
Hickory Stewart Copeland Signature Wood Tip
To celebrate The Police's 30th Anniversary Reunion Tour, Vater is proud to release the Limited Edition-2007 Stewart Copeland Standard drumsticks. Same in physical design to the top selling Stewart Copeland Standard, the Limited Edition release features updated graphics that include Stewart's "Rhythmatist" logo, signature, and "Limited Edition 2007" printed on the stick in a custom blue metallic ink. Get them while you can! As soon as The Police Reunion Tour ends, so will production on these Limited Edition drumsticks.
The Bottle Rockett measures between a 5A and 5B with a unique handle built into the grip. This handle helps prevent the sticks from slipping out of your hands while playing and gives the stick an unmistakable look. The gradual taper and weight gives the Bottle Rockett outstanding rebound, response and playability. The squared off oval tip creates big sounds from the drums but keeps cymbal tones clean and articulate. Even though the design comes from a legendary glam rock/metal drummer, the Bottle Rockett is versatile enough for applications outside the stick-twirling genre.
