Vater guarantees their sticks to be “straighter, more consistent and of higher quality than all other leading drumstick manufacturers”. Vater sticks typically have a slightly higher moisture content than other drumsticks, which is intended to create more durable drumsticks, though this does result in a slightly heavier stick.
Besides drum sticks, Vater also manufactures a variety of timpani mallets, marimba mallets, vibraphone mallets, brushes, specialty sticks, silencemutes, stick bags, drink holders and other accessories.
