NAMM 2017 - Vic Firth - Buddy Rich and Carmine Appice Signature Sticks

Limited Edition Products will Celebrate Artist Milestones in 2017 

Vic Firth Co., the world''s largest and leading manufacturer of drumsticks and mallets, is pleased to unveil two limited edition signature products for 2017. 

Artist collaborations have long been a point of pride for Vic Firth Company. Conceived with the utmost respect for artistry and musicality, sticks in the Vic Firth Signature Series celebrate the musicians – past and present – who shape the drumming world today. 

Quite possibly the most recognized jazz drummer of all time, Buddy Rich fundamentally changed the role of the drummer. His inimitable style pushed him to center stage, and in so doing, created generations of aspiring young drummers! 

Exploding on to the music scene in the late 1960’s with Vanilla Fudge, Carmine Appice brought an immense energy to the drumming world. Together with Vanilla Fudge, he helped to shape the face of Psychedelic Rock for years to come. 

Vic Firth is pleased to release these limited edition products, celebrating Buddy’s 100th birthday and Carmine’s 50-year career in the recording industry.
