EVOLUTION signature stick was designed by Vic Firth and
Dave to correlate with changes Dave made to his playing
approach in the late '90s.
It has a slightly heavier front end than his original
signature stick (the red one), producing a great balance
from a 'center of gravity' balance point, allowing
rebound to happen with very little effort. It is similar
in size to a 5A, with a different tip and different
balance in the front end.
The SDW features a
barrel tip for a broad cymbal sound. It's fast, with
great leverage, and is available in wood or nylon tip (SDWN).
L = 16 1/4", Dia. = .560"
The SDW2 features a short tear drop tip on a 5A
shaft. It provides superior cymbal definition with
excellent rebound. It is also now available with a nylon
tip. L = 16", Dia. = .563"
