Sad news to hear that Vic Firth has passed. He was a solid percussionist (and most any instrument you put in his hands reportedly), who has influenced musicians for decades with some of the best sticks and mallets in the business. I've been using Vic Firth sticks for around 20 years now.

Vic was an inspiration to all of us. He was a visionary, a mentor, a leader and a friend. He always said he surrounded himself with the best people, but the truth is he brought out the best in all of us. His boundless passion for music and musicians drove every decision he made.

Vicís spirit and legacy will continue to live at the core of the Vic Firth Company. He will be missed beyond words.
