I've played Vic Firth products ever since I started playing in 8th grade. I still have my old pairs of SD1's and after 38 years they still feel and sound fantastic. As a performer I play in a variety of solo, chamber, and large ensemble settings and no matter what the situation I can always find a mallet that works for me. Teaching at the University of New Mexico I've found that Vic Firth sticks and mallets always sound great, whether my students are performing in a concert hall or in a football stadium. The consistency from mallet to mallet and attention to detail is why Vic Firth products are the right choice for me!
