Manufacturer's Description from Vater

Derek Roddy's Vater drumsticks are in between a 5A and 5B in the grip. The stick features a really quick taper to a small acorn tip for warm but defined cymbal tones. A great stick for a variety of musical applications. 

"My Vater signature model drumstick gives me exactly what I need. Perfect size and feel.... not too big, not too small. Perfect balance.... weighted just right at the tip and butt. Added length gives me that little extra reach. Perfect versatility... works well in quiet, loud or any other situations I find myself playing in. Perfection! Perfect for me. Perfection? Could it be perfect for you?" - Derek Roddy

Although the company began producing sticks in 1956, it did not officially become Vater Percussion until much later. The first sticks made by a Vater were made by Jack (Adams) Vater, in Jacks drumshop inBoston, Massachusetts. Jacks was one of the first shops to offer custom models, and began producing custom models for Buddy Rich. In the early to mid 1980's what would become Vater began manufacturing drumsticks for Vic Firth percussion and Zildjian Cymbals. On 10-22-1988 Vater moved their factory to Holbrook, Massachusetts. Three years later the first Vater drumsticks were introduced at aPercussive Arts Society show
