Default Re: Vic Firth American Classic 5A

I'm not a drummer legend who's been playing for 30+ years but in my 7 years of playing I can testify to you VF 5A classic are my all-time favourite sticks.
Durability is good, feels great on my hands, no over-tacky or over-slippery feel...great all-round sticks for me.

If the gig is super light & the room is super-small I'd switch to 7A
and vice versa if super heavy music & bigger venues I'd switch to 5B but 95% of the time I use 5A.

Go & try different sticks though, dont be stuck with just 1 option in mind. There are 000s of sticks out there for you to try.
All the best!!
