ABOUT THE COMPANY:
Vic Firth Company is the world’s leading manufacturer of drumsticks and mallets. Established in 1963 by world-renowned principal timpanist for the Boston Symphony Orchestra, Everett “Vic” Firth, the company is widely recognized as the producer of the highest quality drumsticks in the music industry. Vic Firth produces an average of 85,000 sticks per day at its manufacturing facility in Newport, ME and manufacturers over 500 products to meet the growing needs of drummers around the world.
From the very beginning, Vic Firth Company has guaranteed drummers The Perfect Pair™ -- a straight pair of sticks, perfectly matched in pitch and weight, every time! This concept revolutionized the market for drumsticks and catapulted Vic Firth Company into a leadership position in the industry. Outstanding quality control, new product innovations, and industry-leading sales and marketing initiatives have allowed Vic Firth to remain the choice of drummers across all musical genres worldwide.
Vic Firth Company has maintained the highest standards of environmental responsibility in manufacturing for many years -- long before it was fashionable to do so. In 1992, Vic Firth was the first company to package paired sticks in the paper matchboxes which are now the industry standard, eliminating millions of plastic bags from landfills every year. At their Newport factory, water is recycled at a rate of 10,000 gallons per hour! Additionally, sawdust is collected and used as fuel to heat the factory.
Vic Firth Company has been recognized with countless accolades from consumers and trade professionals alike. The company is annually recognized and highly regarded in magazine reader’s polls. For Vic, recognition from drummers is the most rewarding!
Vic Firth, himself, is no stranger to recognition. He holds honorary Doctorates in Music from New England Conservatory, VanderCook College of Music, and the University of Southern Maine. Additionally, he is a Hall of Fame member for the Percussive Arts Society and Music for All. He has also been honored with the Modern Drummer Editor’s Achievement Award and the Music & Sound Retailer Lifetime Achievement Award.
