The Shōgun® Series

SHōGUN® STICKS ARE BACK!

Originally released in the early 1990′s, Vic Firth’s Shōgun® series is back by popular demand! The Shōgun® Series features the designs of the American Classic® 5A and 5B, crafted in Japanese white oak.

A denser wood with a more rigid response than hickory, Japanese white oak provides added weight and power for a full drum sound and strong rhythmic projection. The hardness of the wood tip creates a brighter cymbal sound and provides excellent definition during intricate ride patterns. This unique wood also produces an incredible cross-stick tone that really cuts through.
