I've been playing Vic Firth sticks since I was in Maynard Ferguson's Big Band in 1982. I used VF 5B's with Maynard. This stick was perfect for the many different styles that we played in that band. Vic invited me to have my first signature stick in 1985 when I had my 7 years of fun and great music as a member of The David Lee Roth Band. This GB signature stick is still part of the VF signature line. It's a 2B with a beefed up neck that works great for Big Rock! I still use that stick for really hard playing. I have been a member of Ringo Starr and his All Starr Band since 2008, and my newest and second VF signature stick is the GB Backbeat. It's a version of a type of a modified 5B design and a modified tip with amazing feeling black Vic Grip. For me, it's the best all around stick I have ever played! VF sticks are the best in the world.. Vic was a dear friend of my Dad, Bud Bissonette and I. Thanks Vic for 33 years and counting! Gregg Bissonette
