Stay On Beat With The Lightweight Vic Firth Amir "Questlove" Thompson Signature Drumsticks
With supreme versatility, Questlove is in demand as a DJ, music journalist and record producer. He is best known, however, as the drummer for the Grammy Award winning band, The Roots, which is now the in-house band for Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. With a very distinct style and sense of groove, Questlove is certainly one of the most soulful drummers on the planet!
â€œWhen I play,â€ states Questlove, â€œit is extremely crucial that I keep the pace, rhythm and most importantly, the pocket. To do this, I had to design a stick that has a perfect lightweight feel and a finish that would help me hold onto the stick for my â€˜break beat drummingâ€™ approach. For me, the combination of a very long and thin stick is quite unique. And with the grip we have, I am sure I now have the perfect design!â€
With 17â€ of length and an extended taper, Questloveâ€™s new stick can really crack! One of the longest and thinnest sticks we offer, the wildly unique Questlove Signature Stick is now optionally available without VicGrip or paint.
â€œIâ€™ve used Vic Firth all my life,â€ Questlove goes on to say. â€œTo me there is no other option - Vic Firth is the best! The wood Vic chooses is the strongest and most durable which is so important, especially with a thin stick like mine! Thanks for going the extra mile for us all, Vic - personally and professionally!!â€
