Hey, just thought I would tell everyone about a great deal at Steve Weiss music. www.steveweissmusic.com They've got a pack 4 pairs of Vic Firth 5As for $19.99. I just got mine and will be enjoying them for the next couple of years. You guys might want to hurry before they run out! Four pairs of sticks can last a long time and only for $19.99!!! They've got some other great deals too, but this is a hard one to turn down.
