Vater Mike Mangini Drumsticks.
Brand new for 2016, the Vater Wicked Piston drumsticks have been created from popular American Hickory and feature a unique design. These Vater drumsticks have a .580" (1.47cm) diameter at the grip end which then increases to .610" (1.57cm) towards the middle of the drumstick and tapers off into an acorn wood tip. A slight weight has been added to the front of the Wicked Piston drumsticks which helps deliver a quick sound and solid, consistent throw and feel.
Mike Mangini, Dream Theater drummer, has worked closely with Vater to create a pair of unique drumsticks, ensuring every detail is perfect;
