An Extreme 5B shaft with the neck and tip of a Rock. Plenty of weight for heavy hitting, yet thin enough to play with finesse. L = 16 1/2″, Dia. = .595″ – Each Vic Firth Signature Series model was conceived through extensive research with the finest drummers from a variety of musical styles. The designs reflect their musical requirements in terms of balance, feel, sound projection and cymbal color. All colored sticks feature a clear, natural tip. All sticks are hickory unless otherwise noted.
