For over 30 years, the American Classics® have been the popular choice of countless drummers worldwide. Wood tips were the originals, followed by nylon for a more durable and brighter sound option. Vic Firth was the first manufacturer to offer nylon tips designed to mirror their wood counterparts, allowing drummers to switch from the richness of wood to the brilliance of nylon without sacrificing feel and balance. And with our injection moulding process, they wont chip or fly off — guaranteed!
For the 5B player looking for a brighter sound and increased tip durability.
