Hickory is the most popular wood used for making drumsticks. Hickory is denser, heavier and more rigid than Maple. Hickory can also absorb a great amount of shock, which reduces hand and wrist fatigue. Dark, or "brown" hickory, is found closer to the tree's centre and is slightly denser and heavier than "white" hickory.
Sugar Maple brings out a mature, soft and sweet voice from drums and cymbals. Drummers can enjoy the feel of a big stick but without the weight of a Hickory model. The "Sugar Maple Series" of models is perfect for drummers who often find themselves having to play in smaller venues where low-volume is key.
Working in collaboration with some of the world's largest drumming icons, Vater has created the "Player's Design" and "International Player's Design" Series'. These custom models are derived from each artist's unique and individual style.
Working in collaboration with some of Vater's artists, Vater has come up with a new series of sticks that will fill a big gap in the drumstick market. The Xtreme Design Series models have been designed to meet the great demand of drummers who have been asking for stick models in between the very popular Vater Power 5A/Power 5B models and the Rock model.
The stick of choice by some of the world's hottest percussionists, Vater's traditional Timbale sticks are available in both Hickory and Maple in 3 standard diameters. If you need a stick with a beaded head for cymbals, check out the Yambu Jazz.
Under the direction of several Vater Artists including Gorden Campbell, Nisan Stewart, Cora Coleman-Dunham and Chris Johnson, Vater is the first drumstick company to introduce a line of drumsticks geared towards the Gospel Drumming genre.
