Vater Releases Gospel Sticks
Looks like gospel drumming is everywhere we turn these days. After a wonderful night at the Teddy Campbell clinic at Memphis Drum Shop Tuesday (review coming on this week’s show), looks like today that Vater has released several models of gospel sticks. Not sure how these sticks are customized for gospel drumming. The finish looks like the same from the Zildjian Travis Barker signatures, which I recall despising. We’ll have to try some out and see. Comment away if you’ve tried out the sticks. Let us know what you think!
Under the direction of several Vater Artists including Gorden Campbell, Nisan Stewart and Chris Johnson, Vater is the first drumstick company to introduce a line of drumsticks geared towards the Gospel Drumming genre. Vater’s Gospel Series consists of three models designed to meet the feel, weight and volume needs of Gospel drummers. The Gospel Series models measure in at 16.5″ for some extra length and three diameters to suit the variety of volume, dynamic and venues size challenges these drummers face. Gospel Series models are available in wood tip only.
