Phat Ride Wood tip
In between a 5A and 5B for a comfortable grip. The quick taper to a medium-sized round tip produces a clean sound on ride cymbals. A very versatile stick. Brings out a mature, sweet voice from drums and cymbals. Maple can provide the feel of a big stick without the extra weight of a hickory stick. Many of Vater’s popular Hickory models are also offered in Maple for players who prefer a certain profile but desire the tone / volume changes that only Sugar Maple can provide.
