For over 30 years, the American Classics have been the popular choice of countless drummers world wide. Wood tips were the originals, followed by nylon for a more durable and brighter sound option.
Vic Firth was the first manufacturer to offer nylon tips designed to mirror their wood counterparts, allowing drummers to switch from the richness of wood to the brilliance of nylon without sacrificing feel and balance. With Vic Firth's injection moulding process, they wont chip or fly off — guaranteed!
Vic pioneered the process of injection moulding nylon tips onto drumsticks. By fusing the nylon with the wood, tips are guaranteed not to chip or fly off. The injection process also makes it possible to create complex, precision shapes that match their wood tip counterparts exactly.
The Vic Firth Extreme 5B takes the weight and balance of the traditional 5B and adds more power and reach. The medium taper provides optimum balance, while the teardrop tip offers a blend of depth and definition.
