"Vater makes the best sticks out there by far and if it wasn't for them I'd just be air drumming!! I choose the 5B because it's not to skinny and not too fat, I get the power and the speed that I need." - Brann Dailor [Mastodon]
"There's only only stick that can deliver the Death Punch and it's Vater! I need a stick that's the perfect balance of weight, length and durability. The only one I've found that delivers is the Vater 5B." -Jeremy Spencer [Five Finger Death Punch]
"The only stick that can stand up to the abuse night after night" - Kent Diimmel [In This Moment]
"My stick of choice has changed extremely little over my 25+ years as a drummer. The Vater 5B allows me enough girth for power and loudness while allowing just the right lightness for jazz and other dynamic playing." – Claude Coleman [Ween/Eagles of Death Metal]
