Vic Firth Corpsmaster Ralph Hardimon Wood Drum Sticks

The signature stick of Ralph Hardimon, a Grammy nominated percussionist and teacher, the Vic Firth Corpsmaster Wood Drum Stick set is a barrel tipped pair of drum sticks with a long taper. The barrel tips create a full and dark tone, great for snare work. However, if you’re looking for a more clear and defined tone you’re going to want to go with a pair of sticks that has a smaller tip.

Specifications

  • Tip Material: Hickory
  • Weight: 3.2 oz
  • Diameter: 0.710”
  • Length: 17”
  • Taper: Long

The Corpsmaster sticks are coated with paint, which some musicians will love. Paint gives a less “grippy” feel, and creates a stick that is less prone to damage from changes in temperature or humidity. However, if you ever have issues with your sticks flying out of your hands while playing you may want to find a non-coated stick (or rough up the surface of the Corpsmaster set with steel wool).

Lastly, the Vic Firth Corpsmaster Ralph Hardimon set is made from hickory. Because of the set’s length and diameter it will be noticeably heavier than the sets above.
