The Vic Firth SD7 “Whacker” Sticks were designed to be the perfect all around jazz stick. Not too big but with enough length to have an excellent feel and consistent rebound, these are a great choice for jazz trios, fusion groups and jazz ensembles. These sticks are only available with nylon tips for extra articulation on the cymbals making fast ride cymbal passages precise and clear. -Alex
The Vic Firth American Custom SD7 Whacker Maple Nylon Tip Drum Sticks are great for playing jazz and small group ensembles. The nylon tips offer great cutting power on the cymbals.
The American Custom® line consists of a variety of models conceived and engineered by Vic Firth — performer and educator. The first manufacturer to apply the concept of a round striking surface to drumstick design, Vic developed the other originals that complete the line with jazz, pop and rock players in mind.
All twelve are turned from select rock maple for a light, fast playing stick with great flex and rebound. The Custom line is perfect for the artist who is playing lighter types of music, or prefers a beefier stick without a lot of weight.
