When I started this channel, I really didn’t know what was going to happen or where it was going to go. All I knew was that I wanted to build something that is valuable to the drum community and fulfilling to me as an artist. And as my channel has steadily grown, there’s been one company that understands what I do and supports what I do, and that is Vic Firth. Their willingness to bring me into their family and help me reach a larger audience has been an honor, and I feel extremely lucky to have a relationship with a company as forward thinking as Vic Firth.
And when it comes to drumsticks, there is really only one thing I care about, and that is, do these sticks allow me to play without distraction? If the sticks are warped, or unbalanced, or they just don’t feel good, these are all distractions from what’s most important which is your creative flow on the instrument. The stick should feel like a seamless extension of your hands and when you can find a stick that achieves that, then you are really free to play to your highest potential. I’ve tried a lot of brands over the years, but Vic’s are the only sticks that truly feel like an extension of my hands. They allow me to get my ideas out without distraction, which is what a great stick should do. And that is why… I’m with Vic.
