Barrel tip produces bright, articulate cymbal sounds. Great for light rock and fusion. The American Classic® line combines tradition and Vic Firth style. With bold designs, the Classics are turned from select hickory — a dense wood with little flex for a more pronounced sound. Hickory is also capable of withstanding a great deal of shock, making it highly durable. The tips are deeply back-cut for intensified cymbal response.
- The barrel tip and shorter taper provide a balance for more aggressive playing
- Produces a fat, punchy sound on toms and snares
