Vater Chad Smith Signature Drum Sticks
Tradition of quality
The Vater factory produces over ten thousand sticks per day, which are shipped to over a thousand drum shops and music stores in thirty five countries. Founded by Jack Adams in the 1940's, Jack (a great drummer himself) started turning drumsticks for some of the greatest drummers of the day including Buddy Rich and Louie Bellson. The tradition of quality that Jack started provided the Vater family with a challenge; continue to improve and perfect the art and craft of drumstick making into the new millennium. By the way, Jack is Alan and Ron Vater's Grandfather, so you can see, quality truly is a family tradition. Today, the unmatched quality of Vater has attracted the top players in the world like Marvin "Smitty" Smith of the Tonight Show, Chad Smith, Virgil Donati and the list goes on and on. If you're already a Vater user, you know what real quality feels like every time you play. If you're not, What are you waiting for?

Long lasting all-around great sticks!


from Brandenburg,KY

Comments about Vater Chad Smith Signature Funkblaster Drumsticks:

My son talked me into trying the Chad Smith Vater Signature Sticks, it was a great change. I had used a different stick made by a different company for years. I found your stick's to be more comfortable, last longer, and just seemed to get more attack out of my snare.My son hit's alot harder than I do and these stick's took the abuse. They seem to last twice as long as the other stick's that we used in the past.Great job Vater!!Joe LambertLouisville,KY

strong sticks


from San Jose,Ca.

Comments about Vater Chad Smith Signature Funkblaster Drumsticks:

I like these sticks. They are strong and have power like a fatback 3A, but are more focused and responsive. The acorn tip has a nice back cut and sounds great on drumheads or cymbals. Like all wood tips though these will eventually chip. Some players claim that fingernail polish or acrylic spray sealer will help this problem. The obvious solution may seem to be nylon tips, but the fact is that many players do not like nylon tips.
