Default Re: Vic Firth Signature Sticks - Weird break

Gotta be honest here, I've never heard of anyone contacting the company over one solitary broken stick........I just don't think it warrants it. If every stick in the batch broke after a short amount of time, sure. But one stick? Talk about mountains out of molehills.

Rather than write letters to the editor or protest in the streets, you just grab another one and move on, don't you?
Didn't look at it that way, perhaps I am overreacting................These were relatively new sticks, less than an hour of playing time with them.......and mostly "softer" playing too.

I guess I looked at them as defective and I'll let VF know. I am not looking for free stuff, but they may have had a QA/QC type problem..........I don't know how they could even check for defects like that, but I'm sure they do.

Other than normal "wear and tear" I've been extremely happy with VF sticks and will continue to use them, regardless of what their response is.

I hope so too.
