American Classic® 5B Wood Tip Drumstick Black Finish | Vic Firth

The 5B you know and love, with a distinctive black finish. Tear drop tip. Ideal for rock, band and practice.

A 5B profile with a barrel shaped tip. The reduced surface area of the tip provides a more focused cymbal sound while retaining great playability and versatility.

“Creating barrel tipped versions of our two most popular models was not a one-size-fits-all endeavor,” states Vic Firth Director of Education and Product Development, Neil Larrivee.
