AMERICAN CUSTOM® MAPLE DRUMSTICKS The American Custom® line consists of a variety of models conceived and engineered by Vic Firth - performer and teacher. The first manufacturer to apply the concept of a round striking surface to drumstick design, Vic developed the other originals that complete the line with jazz players in mind. All models are turned from select rock maple for a light, fast-playing stick with great flex and rebound. The Custom line is perfect for the artist who is playing lighter types of music, or prefers a beefier stick without a lot of weight.
i play at church and these sticks are perfect to control volume. If you are looking to play loud or hard, these are not for you. Even when you lay into the drums, the stick does not have enough mass to get very loud.
This is an excellent stick for quiet jazz playing, especially of the ECM type!!!
