Vic Firth

Grundades 1963, och har sitt huvudkontor i Boston, Massachusetts, USA. Vic Firth är idag världens största tillverkare av trumstockar och klubbor av högsta kvalitet.

Anledningen till att företaget startades var när Vic, som då hade spelat med Boston Symphony Orchestra i 12 år, uppmanades att framföra mer avancerade stycken som han ansåg krävde trumstockar av en högre kvalitet och specifikationer än de som då tillverkades. Vic beslöt därför att designa en egen uppsättning av stockar.

Vic täljde de första prototyperna för hand själv från redan existerande kraftigare trumstockar, som han sedan skickade till en träsvarvare i Montreal, Quebec, Kanada. Dessa två prototyper skulle sedan bli SD1 och SD2, de två första modellerna tillverkade av Vic Firth Inc.

Vic sa: "Det kom sig av nödvändighet, inte av fantasi eller min förmåga att starta ett företag." Även om stockarna ursprungligen var avsedda för Vic’s egna personliga bruk, blev dom snabbt populära bland hans trumelever och blev så småningom lagerförda i musikaffärer.

The American Classic® line combines tradition and Vic Firth style. With bold designs, the Classics are turned from select hickory — a dense wood with little flex for a more pronounced sound. Hickory is also capable of withstanding a great deal of shock, making it highly durable. The tips are deeply back-cut for intensified cymbal response.
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!
Developed for the player who is looking for ultimate rebound on the drums and cymbals, the American Jazz® line is comprised of six models which feature a long taper in the shaft for that great feel! The neck specifications are sizable enough to create dark cymbal sounds, and the small tear drop tip keeps everything in focus.
The American Sound® series features our most popular American Classic® models, but with a full, round tip. The surface area of the round tip brings increased focus and clarity to the drums and cymbals. This line furthers our effort to offer drummers the ability to change their sound and color without sacrificing feel or balance.
The American Custom line consists of a variety of models conceived and engineered by Vic Firth—performer and educator. The first manufacturer to apply the concept of a round striking surface to drumstick design, Vic developed the other originals that complete the line with jazz players in mind. All eleven models are turned from select rock maple for a light, fast-playing stick with great flex and rebound. The Custom line is perfect for the artist who is playing lighter types of music or prefers a beefier stick without a lot of weight.
Freestyle is a new series of sticks from Vic Firth that draws inspiration from the dynamic world of freestyle longboard skateboards. For freestyle riders, it’s about expression, flow, and style. They have the versatility to move up and down the board without losing control, using every inch of their deck. Vic’s Freestyle series of drumsticks combine a massive overall length of 17” with extra long tapers. This combination of length and taper length more than doubles the area where a drummer can place their fulcrum – offering a humongous array of responses and feels out of the same pair of sticks.
Vic Firth offers a selection of world music percussion products under the World Classic® banner. This line combines Vic Firth’s attention to quality with the expertise of legendary artists worldwide!
Some secrets are too good to keep quiet. Over the years and in collaboration with some of the world’s top artists, the design team at Vic has produced thousands of prototypes ranging from the highly experimental to the straight-ahead. This has been our secret playground. The MJC series have been staples in our back room for years – and while the name says ‘Modern Jazz’, we’ve found they are exceptional in almost any musical setting.
American Heritage® drumsticks feature the dimensional specifications of our most popular American Classic® models, but are crafted in maple rather than hickory for greater rebound and flex. This series allows drummers to have the feel of their favorite American Classic model but with a lighter and more "airy" sound, especially on cymbals. This approach is another extension of our effort to offer drummers the ability to change their sound and color without changing feel and balance.
The Vic Firth Nova Drumsticks are made from second grade Hickory, and are perfect for a drummers on a budget. Each pair are weight-sorted and tone-paired by using the Vic Firth technology.
Vic Firth offers a broad variety of “brushes” to deliver a traditional sound or create bold new sound colors. Each model makes its own musical statement and provides the opportunity for an extensive range of effects.
Vic Firth Keyboard and Timpani Mallets are designed together with the best artists in the world to address a range of instruments and all dynamic levels.

Crafted from selected pieces of persimmon — a wood known for its rigidity and ability to generate dark tones.

Vic Firth's bass drum mallets combine seamless, round felt heads with tapered maple handles for deep, dark sound without excessive weight. The exception is the BD8 with its extraordinary weight and contoured shaft. The gong mallets feature turned maple handles and are offered with fleece covered (GB1-2) or yarn wound (GB3-4) heads.
Field tested and field proven, the superior designs of the Corpsmaster® line reflect years of collaboration with the world’s finest drum and bugle corps.
With a stick or mallet for every musical situation, it’s only natural that Vic Firth offers a line of apparel and accessories to solve certain challenges and make every drummers experience more complete.
