Vic Firth launched five new sticks for 2019 at NAMM in a new series called Freestyle - and they are 17" long. The concept features a larger area on the stick where your preferred balance remains in control. The position where you hold them gives you a lighter touch, or, when holding the sticks more at the end, a heavier feel that lays more into the drums. The video and info below give you the full rundown.
Andrew Tamulynas, Global Category Manager - Sticks, Mallets and Alternative Implements at Avedis Zildjian Company (& Vic Firth), takes you through this entirely new design of 17" drumsticks.
