At Winter NAMM 2018, Andy Tamulynas, category manager for Zildjian and Vic Firth drumsticks, took the time to introduce Zildjian’s new and improved versions of its popular 5A and 5B drumsticks. More than 30 models have been redesigned from the ground-up to improve their style, durability, and response. In addition to the physical changes, all 5A and 5B models will feature a new graphic design and stick sleeve that brings a fresh look to the collection. “With this redesign, we focused on both the physical attributes as well as the overall appearance of the sticks,” Tamulynas says. All Zildjian drumsticks are made in Newport, Maine.
