Vic Firth Symphonic Tim Genis Signature Snare Drumstick

Vic Firth STG Tim Genis General Concert Snare Drumsticks were designed to produce a dark, full-bodied sound. Great balance. Tim Genis STG Concert Snare Drumsticks are made from persimmon, which is known for its density, durability and high impact...

Comments:

I called to ask what snare drum stick would be best to use on a timpani. The first salesperson did not know but referred me to someone else who called back in a very timely manner. He did not hesitate to suggest this stick. He was right. I used it on timpani for an opera I played and it sounded wonderful It was crisp but soft and no "thud". I am and will always be a loyal customer.

Dream Sticks

Comments:

I accidentally ordered two pairs of these last year at my teacher's recommendation, one of which I kept for myself and one of which I've been letting my high school section use. I took a liking to them immediately and, upon playing with them themselves, my sectionmates now have incredibly high standards for snare sticks! I've even let some of my younger players in our lower ensemble use them, and they've dramatically improved their roll quality and evenness of pulse because of the additional weight in the hand. They're great for my pre-conservatory orchestral rep, for middleground wind band playing and especially to get the right ideas into the hands of less advanced players. Incredibly well-rounded and, at this price, one couldn't ask for anything better!

Great concert snare stick

Comments:

What an outstanding stick. I buy them for all my private students. A nice heavy orchestral stick with a good bounce. They are almost identical to the Andy Reamer's Bookspan General, although these are a bit heavy on the lacquer finish and felt sticky in my hands. I sanded down mine and put a light coat of tung oil to make mine feel like the Bookspans that I had for almost 20 years

Great Compliment to Genis 2

Comments:

I bought two pair of these sticks after trying the Genis 2 model. They are a perfect compliment and produce a rich full bodied sound with little effort. They are well balanced and I particularly like the thin tapper that provides an effortless rebound. Like others have mentioned, I also own several pairs of sticks from the Vic SD1 to a couple pair of Cooperman's (Graham C. John's #1 in persimmon and rosewood). My Genis sticks are always in play while the others generally stay in the bag. Vic Firth makes outstanding sticks, so don't let the price fool you into thinking you're getting a lesser product.

Good Stick!!

Comments:

These are very comfortable sticks. I like the diameter, it fits perfectly in my hand. I would recommend these to anyone from beginner to professional. As always, Steve Weiss has the best prices.

Very Nice...

Comments:

Great for solo work and classical-style snare pieces. They also have a fantastic rebound and heavy enough to really shine in an ensemble if need be (Rimsky-Korsakov, Shostakovich), but also fit perfectly in the mix of the percussion section. I recommend them for all looking for a good orchestral snare stick.

I've used these sticks for awhile now, and my hands have become accustomed to the feel of the stick. Once you get used to it, there's no going back! Great sticks!!

Excellent stick

Comments:

This is a great stick for generating a big sound. I use them for all my general playing in concert band. They are a bit heavy in the front ("Tubby" is a word my teacher likes to use), but they are really meant to be played in a manner in which the stick does all the work and, provided your head gives them enough rebound, they work wonderfully. These sticks do take a little getting used to.

Great stick for the price

Comments:

I own 9 pairs of snare sticks including a few Cooperman Persimmon and Roosewood models, a few Firth sd's, and all 3 of these Vic Firth Symphonic models. I must say for the money these are the best. They sound and feel great! I would recommend them for repertoire such as such as Rimsky-Korsakov: Capriccio Espagnol, Koldaly: Dances of Galanta, and Holst: The Planets.
