The West Side is a real unique sounding stick. The grip size measures comfortably in-between a 5A and 5B. The small rounded oval style tip blends right into the neck and taper of the stick for a unique feel and sound dynamic.
"I've been using the West Sides ever since I've checked them out and they're my new stick of choice! They're really versatile and I dig the unique tip design." - Gil Sharone
"Vater's West Side model is the most balanced and playable stick I've ever used! Yeah, I keep it real on the... "West Side"!" -Mika Fineo
