Few drumsticks feature the same level of engineering that Vater Percussion put into the Mike Mangini Wicked Piston, and the results are amazing. They're significantly longer than typical drumsticks we see at Sweetwater, and there's a slight swell in the middle that's easier to feel than see. This unique shape makes it so the balance is significantly different depending on where you hold the stick. Gripping closer to the middle gives you a light and balanced feel. Need more power? Don't flip your stick around - just slide your hand back for the tip-weighted action you need. What's more, the Wicked Piston's acorn tip dishes out serious volume without pitting your heads, and the rim shot you can get out of these sticks is simply phenomenal.
