Quick Take—Vic Firth Stick Bag
By Mike Fitch |
One of the best gear purchases I've made in ages. That's right. You heard me. You might ask yourself " What could be so great about a simple stick bag?" The answer is that this particular bag is big and versatile enough to serve as a drummer's mobile office, sheet music stash, and all-around supply center.
What You Need To Know
I'd been attached to my funky leather stick bag for years, but after trying out the Vic bag I've made this substantial, yet comfortably soft vinyl number my go-to bag for touring, recording, or practicing. Besides doing stick bag duty, this sleek black case has enough spare pockets and features to make it your nerve center on the road. It's simple to keep music practice notes, sheet music, set lists, and tablet in order with three large-sized outside pockets. There's also an extra inside pocket that's handy for holding your cel phone or music player, along with another inner pocket perfect for parts like drum keys, snare cord, ear plugs, etc.
The Vic Firth Stick Bag is big enough to hold a vast range of sticks, mallets, and brushes. Backpack straps free up your hands when hauling your drums into the venue. For the busy drummer and percussionist who needs a sturdy, smart-looking stick and mallet bag with plenty of room for accessories and multiple pages of notes and scores, this stick bag is a god-send.
