Vater Classics 5b Nylon

Featuring a standard 16” length, the Vater Classics 5B sticks have a slightly thinner .595” diameter in keeping with the original specifications used in their first production in the 1950s and 60s.

Delivering a comfortable playing feel, these slimmer 5b sticks are a versatile choice for drummers who play a variety of styles.

Producing a full sound with a slightly brighter top end tone compared to the wood tip versions, these sticks are constructed from hickory to provide a durable playing response.


Offering drummers of all styles a slimmer version of the popular standard 5b, this Vater Classics stick gives a nod to its original incarnation. 

The undersized grip delivers a comfortable playing feel while the acorn nylon tip ensures a bright cymbal response and versatile sound.
