The Vic Firth Ahmir Questlove Thompson Signature Drumsticks in Natural are a pair of high quality drum sticks from Vic Firth, designed and developed with Ahmir 'Questlove' Thompson.
When developing the sticks, Thompson had a specific design in mind. He wanted a longer stick that was to be as light as possible. The sticks are constructed from hickory wood, the most popular, widely used wood in drum sticks today, due to its incredible resilience and durability, as well as its responsiveness and natural, classic feel.
The stick itself is longer than most drum sticks, at 17'' in length, and is only .520'' in diameter. The thin stick combined with the extra length produces a agile, lightweight drum stick that accentuates intricate, detailed rhythms whilst still being able to deliver power and speed when necessary.
The stick features a long taper, offering further agility and a balance that's weighted slightly towards the rear of the stick. This allows for easier ghost notes and snare rolls. The sticks feature a tear drop shaped hickory tip that delivers a clear, definite sound even when playing intricate styles and low volumes.
