Product Description

Vic Firth's affordable Nova 5B drum sticks are crafted of the same First Quality wood used for Vic Firth brand sticks. Each pair is weight-sorted and tone-paired using Vic Firth technology. On the nylon sticks, Vic Firth's new TipLock process guarantees that the tips won't chip or fly off..

10 Steps to a Vic Firth Stick:

    1 - Kiln Drying
    Dried to an exact moisture level in Vic Firth's own kilns.

    2 - Doweling Process
    After reaching the proper moisture level the wood is processed individually into a round dowel.

    3 - Dowel Inspection
    Dowels are inspected and graded into categories, based on color, grain, streaks, blemishes and defects.

    4 - Centerless Grinding
    Stick shape takes form as dowels are grinded by a wheel that spins at a high speed.

    5 - Backknife Lathe
    For timpani mallets and bass drum beaters not made on centerless grinders

    6 - Computer Shaping
    Complex stick and mallet profiles are shaped on the CNC computerized lathe.

    7 - Finishing and Logo Stamping
    Sticks are placed into tumblers to evenly finish the sticks. Vic Firth's Logo is stamped on accepted sticks.

    8 - Weight Sorting
    After checking once more for straightness sticks are loaded weighed on a computer scale and organized by weight.

    9 - Tone Pairing
    A computer analyzes the exact peak frequency of the stick and places the stick into a bin with others that match.

    10 - Color Matching and Packaging
    Sticks are paired by hand then the label and bar code are added (12 Pairs are combined to make a Vic Firth Brick)
