  • Features a unique taper that blends smoothly into the neck and then to the tip. Very well balanced, with great leverage. Named the best “Up and Coming” drummer in the 2006 Modern Drummer Readers’ Poll, Aaron Spears broke onto the national scene with the D.C. based jazz/R&B/rock group known as the Gideon Band (GB). He has since gone on to work with artists such as James Brown, Alicia Keys, Usher and the American Idol tour. “I have always loved the Vic Firth 3A,” explains Aaron. “But given the chance to design my own stick, I knew I could come up with something that would be even better! We lengthened the taper and increased the overall length, and I now have a stick that lets leverage do the work for me. These are my new favorite sticks, and I think you will love them too!” Aaron’s new Signature Stick is made of hickory and features a taper that blends smoothly into the neck and then to the tip. This creates a very well balanced stick, and one that plays as well as it looks!

  • A 5B shaft with a front-end loaded neck and tip for a full sound on the bell of the ride. With black Vic Grip. Gregg Bissonette is one of the most versatile drummers in the music business. His broad experience ranges from big band to blues, rock, Latin, fusion, and much more. With an impressive list of television and movie credits to his name, as well as performances and recordings with an amazing variety of artists, Gregg is certainly one of the busiest drummers on the scene today! “As much as I love my original signature stick for rock gigs and recordings,” Gregg explains, “I found myself wanting and needing a stick that was more of an all-purpose model for the rest of the musical genres I find myself playing within. I am excited to say, we have designed a stick that fits the bill: plenty of front-end weight for power that works for me, not against me. I can play fast passages easily and no matter what style I play, I am able to get a great ‘Backbeat’ sound!” The new Gregg Bissonette “Backbeat” Signature Stick features a hickory 5B shaft with a front-end loaded neck and tip for a full sound on the bell of the ride. Slip-resistant Vic Grip provides superior hold for a confident backbeat and big drum sounds. This new model is a great all-around stick choice. “First and foremost, I have a great deal of respect for Vic as a person, percussionist and teacher,” says Gregg. “What he has created with this company is nothing short of amazing. I am so glad to say that I have been part of it all, since 1982!”

  • A 5B shaft with an extended taper and elongated oval tip for great response, sound and versatility. With slip resistant Vic Grip for superior hold. “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.” Carter’s new signature stick combines a 5B shaft with an extended taper and elongated oval wood tip. The result is a design that provides superior response, sound and versatility. For a distinctive look and feel, the butt end of the stick is dressed in our anti-slip Vic Grip coating in Carter’s signature yellow. This specially formulated coating is extremely durable and an ideal choice for players like Carter who prefer an enhanced grip on their drumsticks. Vic concludes, “I have admired Carter for his terrific drumming style for many years. With the rare ability to inject such a unique playing sensibility, he flourishes as an inspiration to us all! It is no wonder that he has garnered countless awards including Rolling Stone magazine’s recognition as one of the top 10 drummers of all time! I am so delighted to have Carter as part of the Vic Firth family!”

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.

  • German drumming sensation Benny Greb requires no introduction in the percussion world. A true student of the instrument, his analytical and holistic approach to the drums fuels his enviable ability to groove in any musical setting. As much an educator as he is a performer, Benny strives to share his knowledge and passion with future generations of drummers in his instructional roles at the Popakademie in Hamburg and the Hamburg School of Music. In 2016, Benny brought his immense talents to Vic Firth in search of The Perfect Pair. “We wanted to get this product absolutely right – and it was worth the wait,” states Neil Larrivee, Vice President of Education and Drumstick Product Development. “Working with an artist of Benny’s knowledge and artistry is always a pleasure. His thoughtful and detailed contributions to the design process have made this a truly exciting stick. No question.” Benny’s stick is similar in diameter to a 5B, but features some unique adjustments that optimize feel and sound. A medium taper places the shoulder of this stick in an ideal spot for durability. To get a little more response than a medium taper typically offers, additional length is “borrowed” from the neck by moving the tip further up the stick. While increasing response usually requires changing the taper or length of a stick, Benny’s signature model does it all within a well-balanced 16 inches! The tip is a shortened tear drop shape - smaller than what you might normally find on a stick of this diameter - and provides a much more focused cymbal sound. The Benny Greb Signature Stick is personal on every level, right down to the green ink – a calling card of this drumming mastermind. “What a rewarding experience it is when you search for something, think there might be a possible improvement, and then your expectations are met and even surpassed,” states Benny. “I feel at home and that everything is as it should be.” *A 5B shaft with a shortened tear drop tip for focused

  • A 5B body with a proportionately thick neck and blunt, bold tear drop tip. Long taper for great feel and a musical touch. As one of the most honored and celebrated drummers of all time, Vinnie Colaiuta is an artist who needs little introduction. With a long resume of musical credits under his belt, he is one of today’s first-call drummers for both live and session playing in a variety of musical genres. His credits include work with artists such as Herbie Hancock, Jeff Beck, Sting, Megadeth, Faith Hill, Chick Corea and Joe Satriani to name a few. “You can have the best gear, but if the sticks aren’t good, the chain is broken,” states Colaiuta. “When the sticks are balanced, I feel balanced. They should be transparent – an extension of me. That’s exactly what my new Vic Firth signature sticks are!” Designed for superb musical presence, the Vinnie Colaiuta signature sticks are an evolution of the immensely popular Vic Firth 5B model. Crafted in hickory, the proportionately thick neck and blunt, bold tear drop tip provide an enhanced sound on drums and cymbals. The long taper puts it all into balance for great touch and feel. “My new signature sticks help to bring out a full sound from my drums and cymbals,” Vinnie goes on to say. “They are solid, beefy, have great balance and hold up well even when I play aggressively. Being back with Vic and his team feels so good! Their unique approach assures all of us that our sticks will be consistent and made to the highest quality standards. They care about making it right. It is an honor for me to be in such esteemed company!” Vic concludes, “Vinnie is truly one of the great musical drummers of our time. His understanding of sound and his ability to adapt his sounds to the music is uncanny. It is with the greatest respect and enthusiasm that I welcome him to the Vic Firth family. We are all honored to be able to produce his signature stick!”
