Vater Fatback 3A Wood Reviews
I recently found out about the Vater Fatback 3A drumsticks when playing a gig in Baltimore. You know how it works, if you are not the only drummer playing the gig, chances are that the previous drummers will forget one of their drumsticks by the kit once their sets are over. That’s exactly how I acquired this pair. I was curious to try it out once I grabbed them so I decided to play a couple of my tunes with it during my band’s set. Right of the bat, I noticed that the Fatback 3A had a similar weight and thickness when comparing to one of my favorite Vater sticks, the Xtreme Design, 5A. They only differ in three simple, but very important aspects: Length, tip shape and weight distribution.
The Fastback 3A falls right in between the 5As and 5Bs. Its main application is for producing loud, powerful and “fat” drums and cymbals sounds.mtebaldi rated this unit on 2010-08-10.
