For players who love the classic 5B profile but need a little more cut and projection from their cymbals Vic Firth offers the American Classic 5BN. These sticks are great for high volume situations or for players who want a heavier stick with extra power and weight. -Alex
The Vic Firth American Classic 5BN Hickory Nylon Tip Drum sticks feature a nylon tear drop tip for that prodcudes brighter rich cymbal sounds. The 5BN has a slightly larger diameter than a 5A that makes them ideal for playing rock, concert band or for practice.
The American Classic nylon tip models mirror their wood tip counterparts, so drummers can switch fro the richness of a wood tip to the brilliance of nylon without sacrificing feel and balance. And with Vic Firth's "tip locking" manufacturing process, they won't chip or fly off - guaranteed! Nylon tips are the most durable and produce bright sounds on cymbals.
