Length 16 5/8" | 42.23 cm
Grip 0.600" | 1.52 cm
A perfect stick choice for when a 5B is too light and a 2B/Rock model is too heavy. The slightly enlarged diameter, heavier taper and little extra length make Abe’s model great for harder hitting drummers but is also very suitable for laid back/solid groove playing. The medium sized acorn tip delivers warm but articulate tones from around the kit.
“Offering balance, consistency, great feel and ultimate durability. My Vaters bring me pure joy and peace of mind. My search is over….I have found my sticks!!!” Abe Cunningham [Deftones]
"Although this is an extra-long stick, it didn’t feel oversized. In fact, it had a great combination of forward-leaning throw and nimble rebound. If you play anything like Cunningham, whose style features a lot of intricate flourishes as well as aggressive backbeats and fills, then you’ll find everything you need in this stick. It has the perfect balance of power and grace." - Modern Drummer Magazine
