Known as one of the pioneers of contemporary double-bass technique, Charlie Benante has been an influence on countless drummers throughout the world! Idolized as the drummer for the band Anthrax since 1983, he has had a big part in popularizing the blast beat technique with thrash metal.

“I’ve played Vic’s sticks for 3 decades now and to me, it’s the only real choice!” states Benante. “Vic has so many great models, but I would always end up using two separate choices for our shows. I really wanted to develop a stick that could provide me with what I liked about both and put it into one. With this new stick, I now have that!”

The Charlie Benante Signature Stick features a Rock shaft and tip with a special taper that provides great feel and enhanced durability. Slip-resistant Vic Grip provides superior hold, making this stick an ideal choice for the “crashing on the ride” technique that Charlie is known for.

“I’m a hitter, and I don’t play light,” continues Charlie. “I don’t like a thin stick, but I also don’t like a stick that is too heavy. My new Signature stick combines everything I need, and the quality speaks for itself!”
