Working in conjunction with internationally renowned drummer Steve Smith, Vic Firth has developed a unique reduced volume stick without comprising feel and distinctive sound.
The TW12 Steve Smith Birch Tala Wand has a foam center surrounded with birch dowels wrapped in thin PVC. This offers outstanding rebound and sound while naturally producing a lower volume. Even though the shaft dimensions are thicker than the TW11 model, the lighter weight of the birch dowels actually helps create a lighter touch and even lower volume.
