The Vic Firth American Classic 8D Sticks were designed for players who want a little more reach out of their “low volume” sticks. These sticks have a similar design to the classic 7A model but with an extra half inch of reach giving it a unique feel and balance. A great stick for any acoustic or small group setting as well as a great choice for younger drummers with smaller hands. -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. Like the 7A, with a bit more reach.L = 16" D = .540"
