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!
"When I play, states Questlove, it 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 breakbeat drumming 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!"
With 17" of length and an extended taper, Questlove'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.
"I've used Vic Firth all my life," Questlove goes on to say. "To 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!!"
