The Vic Firth Signature SBEA2 Carter Beauford Sticks feature a 5B hickory shaft with an extended taper and elongated oval wood tip. Now offered without the Vic Grip coating, thes sticks offer superior response, sound and versatility.
A founding member of Dave Matthews Band and truly one of the best-known drummers in the world, Carter Beauford brought his immense talent to Vic Firth five years ago in search of the perfect pair. Creating a versatile stick was an absolute must for this man who is known for his ability to adapt to a variety of genres.
“For years, drummers around the world have told us how much they love the balance and adaptability of Carter’s stick,” states Neil Larrivee, Vice President of Education and Drumstick Product Development. “But if there’s one request we hear time and time again, it’s for a version with a natural grip. In close collaboration with Carter, we’re pleased to now offer his wildly popular signature stick without the added Vic Grip coating.
