  • Item Details

    Vic Firth SRH2 Ralph Hardimon 'Hammer' marching snare sticks are balanced and shaped just like the original model with a barrel tip for dark, full sound and a long taper for lots of rebound and control.

    The difference is that these chop-out sticks are made of dense, heavy Sta-Pac, which means you're going to be working harder for every single stroke. Use these babies when you go out to the woodshed to do some work.

    • Nothing wrong with using added weight to chop out from time to time...but to really look and sound good when it matters, you need to practice more with the sticks your line is using. You see baseball players with those rings around their bats to warm up their swing..but notice they don't keep it on for long. When using these, be careful not to adjust your technique to the requirements of a stick like this. I've had a student or two develop some interesting downstroke pinching and overuse of the arms for rolls due to always using these types of practice sticks too often in personal practice...don't rely on these sticks to give you automatic chops, you develop chops through good and consistent practice habits.

    • Holy Chops!

    • I bought these a few years ago, and just started using them again to build back some chops. I love the feel of them and the weight that really lets you know how your chops are doing. The only down side is after a while they get kind of a dead sound to them, not like a broken stick but just not as bright as they start out. Great stick still, I highly recommend these.

    • The Best Chop Building Stick Yet!!
    • April 7, 2011
    • by Randall Olvera
    • I have tried many heavy "chop building sticks" but these are by far the best out there. Vic and Ralph have done it again. The weight on this stick is almost perfect to hit the pad and drum with some warm-ups and to build up your chops. This stick blows the MS4 out the door! The SRH is the overall best stick out there and the SRH2 is the best chop building stick out there!

    • this stick has made such a difference in a very short period of time. the only thing i didn't like was the finish on the stick, but they're becoming more comfortable everyday. go get yours NOW!!!!! especially old-timers like me. you need them.

    • These are way better than the MS4's! I like the fact that it gets the full size of a marching stick (length and thickness). I can't put these bad boys down! Go grab a pair now!

    • I have been searching for a heavy chop building stick, I used to use the MS4s tripple taped from the TH, but the Hardimon Hammers are a full oz heavier untaped. Plus, we use Hardimons at my HS, so it's good to practice with the same length stick.
