Re: Vic Firth Legacy Brushes :(
I own quite a few pairs of brushes ( all Calato/ Regal Tip oddly enough).
My current two favourites are :
Non- retractable handle - XL Model - hickory handled brush longer brush than normal.
Retractable Model- Ed Thigpen signature , hybrid wood/rubber handled brush, nice spread, medium thickness bristles.
Honorable Mention goes to :
Non-retractable - Clayton Cameron - was my original favourite, but I prefer the wood handle of the XL
Retractable - Jeff Hamilton - thicker bristles, I generally use these for my Big Band gigs because they cut through all the horns well.
