A founding member of Dave Matthews Band and truly one of the best-known drummers in the world, Carter Beauford brought his immense talent to Vic Firth five years ago in search of the perfect pair. Creating a versatile stick was an absolute must for this man who is known for his ability to adapt to a variety of genres.

“For years, drummers around the world have told us how much they love the balance and adaptability of Carter’s stick,” states Neil Larrivee, Vice President of Education and Drumstick ProductDevelopment. “But if there’s one request we hear time and time again, it’s for a version with a natural grip. In close collaboration with Carter, we’re pleased to now offer his wildly popular signature stick without the added Vic Grip coating.”

“When you work as much as we do, there isn’t a lot of time to try out new gear,” states Beauford. “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.”
