  • Why do you choose Vic Firth?

    The first sticks that fell into my hands were Vic Firth 5A. Before that, I played with sticks made from the legs of a chair, or from tree branches. Then, of course, I played with all the available stick models, but still in the end, I chose Vic Firth. It's like love at first sight.
