We dig all kinds of music! Sure, we may talk a lot about rock, but totally recognize it when we meet and listen to great funk, soul and jazz players too. Carl Allen is one of those cases and he demos his Vater sticks and brushes in this cool video.
Vater Drum Sticks and Chad Smith of The Red Hot Chili Peppers have stuck (pun intended) together for 25 years, now celebrating their silver anniversary. Congrats, guys and here’s to another 25 years!
Kristina Schiano knows how to attract a huge crowd on YouTube. And how to hit those drums good! Check out this video, as she beats up those barrels with her Vater Sugar Maple Concert drum sticks.
Luke Holland is a great drummer, but he also did practice a lot on a special effect of a more visual kind. Flippin’ the sticks freely within the groove has become second nature.
Morgan G Simpson buckles up and hijacks Jacob Collier’s take on Stevie Wonder’s ‘Don’t You Worry ‘Bout A Thing’ in a tour de force of chops and flying sticks.
Sure, it’s great to have a truckload of great endorsers, but sometimes it’s also just great to know that your products are being out to good use everywhere.

This is a very cool little lesson by James Murphy. As he explains, it’s not a fill or a lick, but rather something subtle, yet very effective, that will help you ‘color’ your groove a bit.
Behind every great drum groove, fill or lick are hours and hours of practicing. Nothing really beats hard work and patience, but it doesn’t necessarily have to be boring getting better.
Stacy Jones is a versatile drummer who tours with such different acts as Miley Cyrus, Letter to Cleo, Everclear and The Lemonheads. But regardless of artist or band, Vater is in his stick bag.
