As one of the most honored and celebrated drummers of all time, Vinnie Colaiuta is an artist who needs little introduction. With a long resume of musical credits under his belt, he is one of today’s first-call drummers for both live and session playing in a variety of musical genres. His credits include work with artists such as Herbie Hancock, Jeff Beck, Sting, Megadeth, Faith Hill, Chick Corea and Joe Satriani to name a few.
“You can have the best gear, but if the sticks aren’t good, the chain is broken,” states Colaiuta. “When the sticks are balanced, I feel balanced. They should be transparent – an extension of me. That’s exactly what my new Vic Firth signature sticks are!”
Designed for superb musical presence, the Vinnie Colaiuta signature sticks are an evolution of the immensely popular Vic Firth 5B model. Crafted in hickory, the proportionately thick neck and blunt, bold tear drop tip provide an enhanced sound on drums and cymbals. The long taper puts it all into balance for great touch and feel.
