Vic Firth's Director of Education and Development, Neil Larrivee, demos the VicKick Beaters launched at NAMM 2014.
The VicKick Beaters are available in felt, wood and fleece. The felt and wood beaters can be set in two positions:
- the radial position; for clear articulation and consistent rebound
- the flat position; this increases beater surface contact for enhanced sound.
The fleece beater is crafted with an oval felt core and sets up in a singular position. The oval fleece-covered felt has a medium felt core covered with fleece for a full and warm sound.
