Vic Firth Garibaldi Jam Master Sticks

Vic Firth Garibaldi Jam Masters

- Lyle Caldwell - 2002

Secondary mini review- I bought a new pair of Vic Firth Dave Garibaldi "Jam Masters" the other day, only to find the stick design had changed, in size, shape, weight, and sound.

Not liking the new design, I tried many sticks today, and was very pleased with the Johnny Rabb 5A Traditional and the Rabb Jim Keltner traditional. Both feel great, are very well balanced, are very consistent from pair to pair, and sound wonderful both on drums and on cymbals. Not sure which of the two I prefer yet- the Trad 5A is the best long 5A I've found so far, and feels very quick, but the JK has more meat in the back part of the stick, which makes it easier to use finger control.

Not that my hands are good yet, so take this with a grain of salt, but the Rabbs felt better to me than any of the other brands.

Well worth trying if ou get the opportunity.
