When you work as much as we do, there isn't a lot of time to try out new gear. You get kind of locked into a routine. And that's sometimes unfortunate, because there could be something out there that's better. That was the case with me and Vic Firth! When a friend of mine recently put some Vic Sticks in my hands, I could not believe the difference. The stick not only felt perfectly straight and balanced, but I could also hear the difference immediately. I found I didn't have to work so hard because the stick was working for me. It was then I realized that I had found the right tool for the job.
