With high demand coming from young drummers, drum lines, and theatre / pit drummers, Vater has developed the Color Wrap Series. The core of the color wrap series is made of Vater's extremely popular 5A, 5B, and Power 5B wood tip & nylon tip models. Each model is available in blue sparkle, gold sparkle, red sparkle, black optic, silver optic, and purple optic finishes. The eye-catching wraps themselves are high density without compromising the feel, weight and balance of the stick. Perfect for drummers looking to add an exciting visual aspect to their playing.
Hickory is the most popular wood used for making drumsticks. Hickory is denser, heavier and more rigid than Maple. Hickory can also absorb a great amount of shock, which reduces hand and wrist fatigue. Dark, or "brown" hickory, is found closer to the tree's center and is slightly denser and heavier than "white" hickory.
Full sized barrel tip and long shaft for weight and extra reach.
