85A

Vic Firth 85A American Classic 85A Drumsticks

Combines the dimensions of an 8D and 5A. A great jazz stick.

DETAILS:

Affectionately referred to as the “diet 5A”, the 85A combines the dimensions of an 8D and 5A for a perfectly balanced stick with a lighter touch. 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.

  • A hybrid of the 8D and 5A dimensions
  • Ideal for jazz and fusion playing and getting around the kit effortlessly
