Developed for the player who is looking for ultimate rebound on the drum and ride cymbal, the American Jazz line is comprised of six models which feature a long taper in the shaft for that great feel! The neck specifications are sizeable enough to create dark cymbal sounds, and the small tear drop tip keeps everything in focus.

  • Length: 16"
  • Diameter: .595"

American Jazz Hickory Drumsticks Specifications:

  • AJ1: A 5B shaft that feels full-sized yet plays "lightning fast".
  • AJ2: A 5A shaft for a light touch.
  • AJ3: An 8D shaft that feels like it plays itself.
  • AJ4: A thin stick that still produces good cymbal sounds.
  • AJ5: The thinnest stick in the entire catalog! Built with great balance in mind, making it light and easy to play.
  • AJ6: A 7A-like shaft coupled with a very small neck and tip of the sweetest cymbal sounds. No fear of "overplaying" with this model!

Comments about Vic Firth American Jazz Hickory Drumsticks:

I use these in a relatively small jazz club with a piano trio and singer. The smaller bead makes your cymbals take a "back seat" to the featured instrument (vocal). I use the AJ2's in a heavier situations. The only gripe I have with Vic Firth and several other companies, is that over the last several years, the beads on their sticks tend to split and splinter sooner after you start to use them. This never used to be a problem - hence the 4 stars. I haven't found a company yet that has anything better so I'll stick with Vic. The sticks are great and do what they are supposed to do, I just wish they lasted a bit longer.
