New musical possibilities emerge when exploring the colors these new Soft Touch sticks can produce! They feature a dense felt head for a moderately articulate sound that is on the warmer side of a conventional wood tip. Available in both 5A and 5B models.

  • another good option for the stick bag

The Soft Touch sticks are a nice compliment to go along with normal sticks, brushes, and mallets. They seem to be a good option when a stick is too loud, but a timpani mallet, like the V.F. T1, is too soft. The Soft Touch sticks also feel just like normal 5As in terms of weight and balance, so they're easy to control. I really like the sound of them on toms, but for cymbals you will obviously lose any kind of "ping" sound. Also, just keep in mind that like any felt mallet, these wear down over time, but all-in-all they're pretty durable.
