The Vater Classics 5A Nylon Tip Drumsticks maintain the original specifications and profile of the first Vater 5As ever produced to deliver a full sound and a familiar playing feel.

The Original Classic

The 5a drumstick has been the most popular choice for drummers of all styles for many years and it’s all down to its well-balanced feel and strong, versatile playing sound.

The Vater Classics series places the popular 5a sticks alongside five other models to produce a core line of drumsticks that have been integral to the Vater brand since the beginning.

Giving a nod to the start of the Vater story when sticks were hand-turned, each of the hickory sticks in the Classics series maintain the time-honoured specifications of the original production.

Featuring 7a, 5a, 5b, 2b, 8d Jazz and Big Band sticks available in either wood or nylon tip versions, the Vater Classics range brings old favourites to modern drummers.

Vater Classics 5a Nylon

The Vater 5a Classics stick features a .565” diameter and 16” length to deliver the time-honoured specifications much loved by many drummers.

Offering a comfortable, well-balanced playing feel, the Vater 5a is ideal for a wide range of playing styles and situations.

This Vater Classics stick delivers a full sound from drums and cymbals thanks to its standard taper and acorn tip.

The hickory construction ensures a stick with superb durability that you can reply on to last while the nylon tip provides a slightly more sparkling top end response than the wood tip.


The undisputed classic, the 5a delivers the feel and response that the majority of drummers want no matter what style they play.

Utilising the original profile used in the first Vater production, these classic 5a nylon tip sticks deliver familiar playing feel and full sound.
