Brooks Wackerman has become one of the most in-demand drummers today. He’s recorded and toured with bands such as Tenacious D, Korn, The Innocent and Kidneys
With a diameter that sits right between the 5A and 5B, The 55A is the perfect choice for when a 5B is just a little more stick than is required. The American Classic® line combines tradition and Vic Firth style. With bold designs, the Classics are turned from select hickory — a dense wood with little flex for a more pronounced sound. Hickory is also capable of withstanding a great deal of shock, making it highly durable. The tips are deeply back-cut for intensified cymbal response.
- Sized right between a 5A and a 5B
- Great mid-sized option for all-around playing

Once you go 5A you won’t go back” – Amadeus [Trey Songz] “My folks tell me I’ve been drumming from the day I was born. I’ve had Rock legends’ tell me I have an old soul. I tell them…From the school band to the recording studio and from rehearsals to touring the country… for as long as I can remember, I’ve always had Vater sticks in my hands. I’m proud to say… I’m growing up Vater!” -Jason Hartless [Ted Nugent]
