The Vic Firth 5AP Drumsticks feature a tear drop tip for rich cymbal sounds. They are light and fast for jazz, orchestral and pit work. This new model is the same as the 5A but with a pink finish.
The Vic Firth 5A are turned from select hickory, a dense wood with little flex for a more pronounced sound. Hickory is also capable of withstanding a great deal of shock, making it highly durable.
