Under the direction of several Vater Artists including Gorden Campbell, Nisan Stewart, Cora Coleman-Dunham and Chris Johnson, Vater is the first drumstick company to introduce a line of drumsticks geared towards the Gospel Drumming genre. Vater's Gospel Series consists of three Hickory models designed to meet the feel, weight and volume needs of Gospel drummers. The Gospel Series models measure in at 16.5" for some extra length and three diameters to suit the variety of volume, dynamic and venues size challenges these drummers face. The round tip provides great cymbal clarity and rebound from around the drumkit. The Gospel Series is finished in a white stain.

Length: 16 1/2"
Diameter: .555"

1st. off I was hugely disappointed that the sticks wasn't white like the picture showed. However,I have been an Vic Firth drummer for as long as I can remember. Every time I got some sticks it was completely Vic Firth I didn't see the need to change. I then started to wonder later on down the road if there was different type of sticks I can get that didn't sacrifice the weight and size for durability. I seen YouTube videos and reviews talking about how durable Vater Drumsticks are and how awesome they are. So I decided to give them a try. They are just fantastic. They haven't broke yet and feels like the wood is smoother than Vic Firths. I still had grip on the sticks while sweating vs VF Sticks they would be about to fall out my hand. At this rate I will continue to stay team vater, they are Awesome Sticks.

  • This design comes from one of the most respected musicians in the Gospel scene and drummer for Israel Houghton and New Breed, Big Mike Clemons. Mike's design measures out just under a 5B in the grip with an extra 1/2" in length for added reach around the kit. With a quick taper and a classic acorn style tip for full drum and cymbal tones, this model is very durable and responsive. Mike's model also features Vater's Nude Series finish for a c...
