Vic Firth

The number one stick in the world with HingeStix® technology.

Designed as a learning tool by drummer, percussionist, clinician and author, Sam Ruttenberg, HingeStix by Vic Firth force drummers to hold their drumsticks correctly. Adjustable plastic swivel pads position the thumb, index finger and middle finger for the perfect fulcrum. The exact balance point is achieved every time the player picks up these sticks.

Additionally, the player will develop proper finger technique and learn to feel the natural rebound of the drumstick. This all results in a smooth and relaxed approach to playing with no fear of hand fatigue. Holding the sticks incorrectly is impossible with the unique design of the HingeStix Practice Drumsticks!

Comments about Vic Firth American Classic HingeStix Training Tool:

While the sticks do provide a consistent reference point for the fulcrum, practicing with them can be a bit awkward. It also seems that you will begin to rely on the pivot point of the sticks instead of proper grasp technique.

This is really for absolute beginners with no knowledge of percussion. If you've done any type of playing before you may want to skip this one.
