Default Vic Firth American Jazz Series

I have really been getting into jazz in the past two years...and as I have come to better understand it...regular sticks just weren't cutting it...


so I bought a pair of Vic Firth AJ2's

which r great because they have the shaft of a 5A which is what I use...


but the tip is great...

It makes my 20" Ping Ride sound so amazing...and it's a lot easier to control.

Yeah they are alright.

But when things get serious, go bopworks.

Well I guess I can chime in on both the AJ2's and Bopworks.

I just picked up a pair if AJ2's and they are pretty sweet, a little big but they do make smaller versons(im deffinaly getting some) but over all this stick will continue to be in my bag for sure the shaft and tip are prime

Bopworks WESTCOAST's are veryyyy slim, fairly long(16" i think) compaired to the AJ2's(and of course a lot lighter, ide recomend a size or two bigger... no not longer) but this sticks tip makes me bosphorus trad 20(normally a littttle pingy)ride sound like butter but overall ide say they are both AWESOME sticks but the AJ are more versatie the bopworks are a strictly jazz stick for me.
