  • Item Details

    Vic Firth MTS1 Corpsmaster Marching Tenor Sticks feature an ovaloid nylon tip that gets a full sound out of the drum head with a particularly cutting high timbre - which is often necessary to keep the middle voice present in a full battery sound.

    The tip also rebounds easily off the head, making diddles and sweeps that much easier to perform.

    Diameter: 0.680"

    • Great stick, breaks easily.

    • Great sticks, no questions asked. Just don't plan on using them on Yamaha rims, they'll break so quickly you'll wonder what happened. If Vic Firth made these with the same dense wood they do for the Mapes series, unpainted, I'd never use another stick. Perfect, just break.

    • Overall a good stick, the only thing is they don't feel good on a practice pad.

    • I've been looking for quality tenor sticks for a while and haven't been satisfied until I got this stick. It gives a full sound on the tenor drum and also great rebound. I highly recommend this stick to beginner and skilled tenor players

    • I've been using this stick for a few years now, and I'm satisfied with the great rebound and the full sounds that they produce. Just a great feeling tenor stick all around.

    • Pretty great stick, i love it because i am also a snare drummer and love the feel of a snare stick, with the nylon tip giving you all the articulation that you need on a set of tenors
