Hailing from Coventry, England, Jen Ledger is the drummer and back-up vocalist for the Grammy nominated platinum selling rock band, Skillet. She has been featured in magazines such as Rhythm, Drummer, Modern Drummer, Drumhead, Drum!, and HM. Jen was chosen as a Rising Star in the 2012 Drum! Magazine “Drummies”. She was also invited by Drum! to be a judge in the 2014 “Hit Like A Girl” contest.
“This opportunity to design my own stick has been amazing,” states Ledger. “We were going for something that would free me up while playing live. My new stick has a perfect blend of weight, length and thickness. It’s solid and sturdy without feeling heavy or bulky. When the adrenaline is pumping, they help me play hard without weighing me down!”
The new Jen Ledger signature stick is crafted in hickory and features a shaft diameter that will feel especially familiar to 3A and 5B players. The 16 1⁄2” length gives the stick an “extreme” feel and a unique medium-length taper flanges back out into a bold tear drop tip. This design affords the player excellent response while providing plenty of leverage for power. The unique wood tip creates clear sounds on drums and cymbals.
“Working with the Vic Firth Company has been such an honor and I am humbled and excited about my new signature stick,” says Ledger. “We have come up with a stick that feels incredible to play with. The distinctive shape and artwork make them look more unique and more like me – fierce and free!”
