Vic Firth American Classic 5AN Nylon Tip Drumsticks
The Vic Firth American Classic 5AN appeared on our recommended list for Drum Sticks from May 2021 until August 2022 when they had been out-ranked by other nylon tip sticks.
These are the popular Vic Firth American Classic 5A's in nylon tip.
Nylon tipped 5A's possess some advantages over the wood tipped version such as brighter cymbal sounds and more resistance to chipping or cracking - although some drummers prefer the natural feel and darker sound of wood tips.
They also possess a good balance, weight and feel similar to their wood tip siblings.
The 5AN's are an excellent starting point if you want to try nylon tip drumsticks.
