The Vater Classics Big Band Nylon Tip Drumsticks are the ideal choice for the modern big band drummer. Featuring a gradual taper, acorn nylon tip and grip that's slightly slimmer than a 5a, these sticks deliver a smooth playing feel and clear stick response.

Classic Sticks for Big Band Swing

One of 6 core models featured in the Vater Classics Series, this new version of the Vater Big Band stick utilises the same specification and profile used in their first production in the 50s and 60s.

Paying homage to their humble manufacturing beginnings when sticks were hand-turned, each of the hickory sticks in the Classics range maintains the time-honoured and much-loved specs of the original production.

Vater Classics Drumsticks are available in 7a, 5a, 5b, 2b, 8d Jazz and Big Band models in either wood or nylon tip versions.

Vater Classics VHCBB Big Band Nylon Tip Drumsticks Specifications:

  • Length: 16 inch
  • Diameter: 0.560 inch
  • Tip: Acorn

Vater Classics Big Band Nylon

The Vater Big Band Nylon Drumsticks feature a .560 inch diameter that's slightly smaller than that of a 5a stick which serves to provide a comfortable playing grip.

Meanwhile, the standard 16 inch length delivers standard reach for easy manoeuvring around the kit.

Specifically designed to meet the needs of big band drummers, the Vater Big Band sticks combine a gradual taper and acorn tip to deliver a crisp, clear ride cymbal response.

Providing the clarity needed to cut through the full mix of a big band ensemble, the nylon tip and forward feeling taper ensure a robust ride sound that perfectly highlights the sticking intricacies of big band drumming.


The ideal choice for the drummer who prefers a slimmer feeling stick, the Vater Big Band sticks offer a shorter taper for a more immediate playing feel.

Featuring the original specifications used in the 1st production of the Big Band sticks, this newer version provides a quick responsive feel tailor-made to meet the demands of high energy big band playing.

The gradual taper and acorn nylon tip serve to ensure your ride cymbal sings with cutting clarity.
