Extremely poor durability, unless I have a defective pair, which rendered them unusable halfway through a gig, brand new, right out of the bag. I'm not a heavy hitter and play a lot of quiet venues in a lounge jazz/exotica band. These deformed so that some dowels protrude above the others, one stick worse than the other but both of them damaged (see photo). As far as I can tell, no wood cracked or split. It's as if some of the dowels came loose in the base of the stick and grew. They are unusable in this shape and I have written to Vic Firth. I have used many types of multi sticks in the course of 7 years with this band, mostly ProMark but also the birch version of this stick by Vic Firth and I've never seen anything like it. I'll probably stick to ProMark.
Update: Vic Firth was contacted and said they have not seen this problem before. They were very good about sending me out a replacement pair of wands THAT ARE DOING EXACTLY THE SAME THING! Used to play three quiet lounge jazz songs, kept in a stick bag the next day in my car for a few hours where they were exposed to some heat (not terrible) and *bam* they are deforming in the same way seen in the photo. I think maybe the bamboo is not yet dead and is growing. Bamboo is good luck so I've got that going for me. Which is good.
While I love these for what they are - light, almost brushlike but w/ more sound and oomph, an interesting, shimmering sound on hi-hats + rides, great for not wanting to sound too loud, etc - It's what they're not that irks me.
They sound completely dead + have no bounceback on toms, the bamboo isn't top shelf, so that they breakdown, splinter, fray on rims very easily, but the major annoyance is that the rods come out of the PVC almost immediately + constantly have to be pushed back in - a thin strip of gaffers tape where the 2 PVC pieces are helps tremendously, but doesn't eradicate the problem entirely. Because then the inner rods start to come forward and they too have to be pushed back in place. It's a design flaw that you don't need a scientist to solve, just better proactive design. Anyone heard of glue? A dollop at the bottom would work wonders...
And if you dig in w/ them at all, the foam core comes out, so these multiple issues make them great but frustrating at the same time.
I play match grip, so I'm hitting the rims more than a traditional grip player would, so the quick deterioration of the bamboo may have something to do w/ that. Maybe not. The Hotrods I've used last considerably longer, but I'm not a huge fan of them either for my own reasons.
So as long as you're prepared to deal w/ these issues + plan on keeping several pairs around due to their limited lifespan, these are a sweet alternative to sticks or brushes 'cause they sorta straddle the line between both - it's the best + worst of both worlds.
But, as in any relationship, it's the give + take that counts, right?
(If you're looking for something a bit beefier that sounds more like sticks but still not too loud and very controllable, and something that takes a beating - pun intended - and lasts longer + thus far hasn't come apart like the Tala Wand - and again, I'm a fan, sorta - try the Vic Firth Rute. It's more steroidal in thickness, sound attack and construction, sounds much better on toms and I've beat them like red-headed stepchildren w/o any issues - yet).
