    Vic Firth 5A Silver Bullet drumsticks have a unique aluminum tip that's even brighter than nylon on your cymbals - you will be able to clearly hear every microscopic ghost note.

    Like other 5A sticks, these are light and airy in your hands, making them ideal for softer or faster-moving drumming. Very useful in jazz, orchestral, and orchestra pit settings.

    • I originally had no idea why anyone would buy aluminum tipped sticks, so I bought them. First thing I noticed was the dramatic change in sound on cymbals, especially my ride. What I thought would be a useless prop turned out to be a great pair.

    • Great sound on toms and cymbals. The snare sound could be better, but perfect for playing set. Wood compared to nylon is a similar comparison to nylon to aluminum
