Comments about Vater Acoustick Solid Sticks:
The sticks give a decent sound and are more durable than other doweled sticks, however the energy dissipation of the strike makes the sticks feel really mushy. I find that my wrists and hands get really tired playing with Acoustic Solid sticks (which is NOT the case with other doweled sticks). Also the wood shaft and nylon outer sleeve sections of the stick slide freely out of the butt of the stick which necessitates stopping often to reposition the wood and nylon portions back into place, but with careful playing and patience these sticks offer another option when it comes to achieving a diifferent sound on the kit and they're probably going to be populating my stick bag for years to come.
