As Mike says, this stick is great for "When I need to BASH!"

Johnston's 2451 is a great all-around design that can be used in any musical style. It has a grip size between a 5A and 5B with a gradual taper to a barrel tip for ride cymbal definition. The gradual taper gives the model a fantastic and quick feel around the kit.

The 2451 Hickory is heavier than the maple version, making it the right choice for live and hard-hitting performance settings.

"The 2451 is the stick I have dreamed about my whole career. This stick feels amazing in my hand and even better on the kit!"
-Mike Johnston

Comments about Vater Mike Johnston 2451 Hickory Drumsticks:

Best stick i have used. Feels great in the hand and great size. Tried many different brands in sizes 5a and 5b and these are by far the best. I have used the same stick for almost 3 months. Try them out.
