Our Perspective

If you’re looking for a stick that strikes a perfect balance between a 5A and 5B then look no further than the Vic Firth American Classic 55A.  These sticks are a great choice when you want a slightly larger stick without too much volume.  If you’re a fan of either the 5A or the 5B you should give these a try.  They may end up being your new favorite stick!  -Alex

The American Classic line combines tradition and Vic Firth style. With bold designs for fuller sound, the Classics are turned from select hickory a dense wood with little flex for a more pronounced sound. Hickory is also capable of withstanding a great deal of shock, making it highly durable.The wood tips are deeply back-cut for intensified cymbal response. The nylon tips are similar in size and shape to their wood counterparts, providing enhanced performance and a feel closer to their original wood tip models. Nylon tips are the most durable and brightest sounding on cymbals.Combines the dimensions of 5A and 5B. A great choice when a 5B is just a little more stick than required.
