Vic Firth is kind of a legend in the drum realm and many know his sticks have a known legacy for quality. The all new modern jazz collection adds a new element to the already massive Vic Firth lineup. While they are labeled as a "jazz" stick I'd encourage any player to try as many different kinds of sticks as they can and find the ones that are comfortable and inspire them to play their best. Sticks are highly personal and subjective oftentimes what works for one may not work for another, so experimenting is highly encouraged. My summary for these particular sticks is that players who prefer a lighter stick that dishes up great response and feel with a leaning toward brighter more articulate cymbal sounds will really like this stick. Whether you already play a light stick such as an 8D or 7A or you have beefier sticks these could be your new favorite or a great compliment to your existing collection in your stick bag. As a drummer that plays in live/recording situations across a myriad of musical styles it's nice having tools for anything that can be thrown my way.
