  • Item Details

    Vic Firth Ralph Hardimon Snare Drum Sticks are the most popular marching sticks out there. Their balance is exquisite thanks to the long taper, rebounding very quickly off the drum to grant the player a great deal of control.

    A fat barrel-shaped tip helps you get the most sound out of every stroke without feeling too heavy - in fact, these sticks actually feel quite light in the hands.

    Made of strong hickory, these sticks can handle a beating (but if you play a lot of rim shots you should still reinforce them with some stick tape). The white painted finish looks great from the audience's perspective.

    If you need a brighter tone, these sticks are available with nylon tips. There's also a version specifically designed for younger hands.

    Length: 17"

    • sounds ok but they break like glass and the paint is very slippery and annoying. they are too light once you build up your chops but they are ok for when you are first learning. not enough weight in the front. mike jacksons and paul rennicks are better

    • These are amazing sticks. They're not too light or heavy, respond well, and produce a clean, full tone. However, the long thin taper breaks easily if they're not taped often. I feel like there should be more weight in the front, but that can be easily solved by taping only the top half.

    • Update on my last Review
    • December 4, 2013
    • by Austin R
    • In my last review, I praised these sticks. Then I grew up. Vic Firth produces some great products, but when it comes to these that's a different story. These sticks have amazing balance front to back, that is no lie but they are too light. For a growing drumline with building chops these may be good for a while, but then it is time ti move on. They break like glass after some major drumming like most drumlines put out these days. Yes you can get them for a good price and they can be replaced with ease, but not what I would recommend these. Add a extra, you need STICK tape galore to make the front heavy and to keep the taper from breaking as fast... I say nay to these on a drumline, if I'm just hacking that's a different story.

    • These are the best sticks I have ever played with. I've played with other sticks, but none compare to these. They have a great feel to them and a great sound. All around great pair of sticks and I HIGHLY recommend these to anybody.

    • I have gone through IP's and System Blues trying see which was better. Then I found these. Right away I was hooked. Great balance from front to back, and durable too. You cant beat these. So buy these and forget the rest.

    • These sticks are fantastic! I like them so much, that I've purchased 3 pairs! They're very good build quality and I love the Vic Firth logo on them. I do not reccomend you tape the part of the stick where there is print on it, because if you remove the tape, the print comes off, I recommend taping the sticks just in front of the words and all the way to the end before the beater of the stick. These sticks are very reliable and are great build quality. Highly recommended!

    • They are an extremely good pair of sticks. Nice and light enough to muscle paradiddles out but heavy enough to get a nice full sound out of the drum. My only problem with it was one pair lasted about a week before one stick went dead and the other broke

    • These were and by all measures still are the gold standard of marching sticks. Vic hit the nail on the head with these years ago and has stuck with the same recipie thats kept Vic in the marching game for years. Fast, strong, responsive and agile. These should be a must have for any drummers stickbag. Also feels great with stick tape and doesnt change the performance like tape does to others.

    • You can't go wrong with a pair of Hardimons. They produce a nice sound with enough beef behind it and has a nice weight to them (if you get the right pair). I prefer sticks with a diameter of .710 so these are perfect and the feel is so comfortable. You'll more than likely go through each pair at your local music store to get the right one. But other than that they're an awesome stick to have. I think this pair is the most overlooked stick out in the market today. People say they break easily but thats not true. If you're playing with correct technique and not just doing rimshots all the time then these will last you for quite some time. A nice pair to have in your stick bag.
