  • "How A 5A Is Made" Part 3: Sorting.
In this step of the process: All of our dowels are put on a conveyor belt and inspected for weight and straightness.  Any dowel that does not meet the Vic Firth standard is either sanded down for a second attempt or rejected.  Then the dowels are inspected by hand for any imperfections: grain, straightness, blemishes. 
This inspection results in 1 of 4 outcomes. 
1.) A Dowel that meets all the criteria is categorized as a Vic Firth stick.
2.) A Dowel that meets all the physical quality criteria but has cosmetic issues becomes a colored/dipped Vic Firth stick.
3.) A Dowel that doesn't meet the Vic standard but is still considered drumstick quality wood becomes our economy quality drumstick line: NOVA. 
4.) A Dowel that doesn't match one of these 3 categories goes to the boiler.

  • For this week’s #StickOfTheWeek we are highlighting the Freestyle Series. The Freestyle Sticks are designed for people looking for freedom and adaptability. Due to their longer design (17” in length) this series gives you more reach out of your sticks. Available in 7A, 85A, 5A, 55A and 5B. These sticks allow you to choke up or hang back when you play. “Move Better- Feel Better-Play Better” - John Lamb 📷 by: @mirel.oprea
