New! Tony Royster, Jr. Signature Stick

Tony Royster, Jr. burst onto the drumming scene after winning the Guitar Center “Drum-Off” at the tender age of 11. At 13, he became the youngest drummer ever to become a Vic Firth signature artist. Today, he is a first call touring musician and a household name for drummers everywhere.

Evolving from Tony’s existing signature stick, the new STR2 is designed to match the needs and playing style of Tony today. With a diameter of .585”, this stick has the feel of a slimmed-down American Classic® 5B in the hand. A slightly longer taper offers incredible rebound – great for fast, flowing, effortless chops.

New! Thom Hannum ST4 “Beast”

Originally created as a custom stick for Carolina Crown to use in their 2018 production of “Beast” at DCI, Thom’s new stick is capable of delivering a huge sound without feeling unwieldy. It is easily controlled and delivers a fantastic feel at all dynamic levels. A higher shoulder adds a bit of weight as well as extra durability in the rim shot area. This is balanced out by a specially-designed taper that increases flex and response in ways not possible on traditional short-tapered sticks.

For the snare line or solo snare drummer looking to generate huge sound, the Thom Hannum “Beast” delivers unbeliev- able power and sound in a well-balanced package. Dia. = .700”; L. = 17”; Short Taper

New! Anders Astrand Signature Mallets

As a mallet specialist, Åstrand regularly performs and gives clinics throughout the US, Latin America, Australia, and Europe. With his percussion ensemble, Global Percussion Network, he has toured extensively in Sweden, Europe, the USA and South Korea.

Åstrand focuses on melodic and rhythmical improvisation, an essential feature also in his compositions. Åstrand has been commissioned to compose for brass quintets, saxophone quartet, choirs, and big band. A more spectacular side features compositions for ice instruments to be performed by percussion ensemble (one of the concerts also featured fighter aircraft as instruments), tractors, and an entire building being inaugurated. Åstrand has also composed music for multimedia performances including dance, video projections, ice instruments, and fire sculptures.

Anders-Orange-Series

Orange Series

Inspired by string quartets, brass quintets and vocal choirs, the individual mallets in this series share a common sound color that allows their individual voices to speak beautifully together. While they are a great choice for solo playing, the Orange series are exceptional mallets for keyboard ensemble settings, where instruments must blend.

 

Anders-Blue-Series

Blue Series

Designed to support the soloist as well as the percussionist playing in an ensemble setting, the Blue series is a bit heavier, producing rich sounds with great projection. Added weight allows the mallets to speak clearly without the player needing to do all of the work.

American Concept Freestyle Series®

Freestyle is a new series of sticks from Vic Firth that draws inspiration from the dynamic world of freestyle longboard skateboards. For freestyle riders, it’s about expression, flow, and style. They have the versatility to move up and down the board without losing control, using every inch of their deck.

Vic’s Freestyle series of drumsticks combine a massive overall length of 17” with extra long tapers. This combination of length and taper length more than doubles the area where a drummer can place their fulcrum – offering a humongous array of responses and feels out of the same pair of sticks. Available in 7A, 85A, 5A, 55A and 5B sizes.

Check out all 5 models of the new Freestyle Sticks!
