Deftones drummer Abe Cunningham visited Drum magazine’s booth at Winter NAMM 2017 to introduce his new signature drumstick from Vater Percussion: Abe Cunningham’s Cool Breeze Player’s Design Drumstick.



Offering a length of 16 5/8″ and diameter of .600″, Vater describes this model as “a perfect stick choice for when a 5B is too light and a 2B/Rock model is too heavy. The slightly enlarged diameter, heavier taper, and a little extra length make Abe’s model great for harder hitting drummers, but also very suitable for laid back/solid groove playing. The medium sized acorn tip delivers warm but articulate tones from around the kit.”

Cunningham himself says, “Offering balance, consistency, great feel and ultimate durability, my Vaters bring me pure joy and peace of mind. My search is over… I have found my sticks!”

Abe Cunningham’s Cool Breeze Player’s Design drumstick is available now. Visit Vater Percussion for more information.
