In the early 1980's, Vic and Steve Gadd began working together on a top-secret new project: a signature drumstick. A true design collaboration between two legendary world-class artists had never been done before in the drumstick industry.
To this day, each signature stick we make is conceived with the same care and respect for artistry and musicality. Vic's Signature Series truly puts the artist's personal touch into your hands!
At age 13, Tony Royster Jr. became the youngest drummer ever to become a Vic Firth signature artist. The STR came out when he was just 15 years old! It features a barrel tip for sensitive drum and cymbal sounds. A great choice for jazz, rock, latin, and funk. Check out Tony's other signature stick, the STR2 as well!
