Positive aspects of the product (pros): Not very loud (good for indoors) Very thin (Good for young players)
Cons: Not a full sound, even in an indoor setting, Way to thin, Serious quality control issues, very wierd balance.

There is pretty much nothing good to say about this stick. The first complaint is the thickness. This stick is way too thin, even for indoor sticks. Most concert sticks and some drumset sticks are thicker than it. I understand that the indoor environment wants to cut back on volume and overtones, but I would still want some fullness and quality of sound, which this stick lacks. With the name of Ralph Hardimon on it, I would expect the stick to have similar balance rebound to the Outdoor version, but it does not. I get no where near the same rebound and it seems a little front heavy.

Vic Firth has some serious quality control issues. I ordered 4 pairs online for the snare drums(I know, never order sticks online, but I had no choice), and 3 of them were dead on arrival. Thats a 75% failure rate, and you cannot blame it on employees mixing the sets. Later on, I found that my local drum store had them in stock, and again, 3 of the 4 pairs were dead.

Overall, I am very disappointed that we must use this stick, but at least it wasn't my money.

Positive aspects of the product (pros): Light, good rebound.
Cons: None

Feels good because its smaller. (Im younger so i have smaller hands). Overall its a good stick for younger players. I like the white color.
