Rute

Vic Firth’s complete line of Rute is designed to provide the player with alternative sounds and feels across a variety of musical settings. Unless otherwise indicated, each Rute model features premium birch dowels secured in a birch drum stick handle. The handle provides a natural feel and can also be used for back beats, cross rim work and intricate patterns on the cymbal bell. A moveable band adjusts the effect from crisp to splashy.

Tala Wands

The Steve Smith Tala Wands were conceived when Steve began playing with drummers from India and needed a way to blend with their sounds and be sensitive to lower volume levels. Other bundles worked as far as volume was concerned but they lacked the rebound he preferred. Each Tala Wand model features a foam center for great rebound!
