Vic Firth Steve Gadd Wire Brushes Review
Steve and Vic have solved the age-old problem of wire brushes snagging on new coated drumheads by slightly angling the wires in the top 3/4" of the playing end. The wires glide across the head, allowing a smoother sweep and a velvet swish sound. The angled wires also increase surface contact to generate increased volume.
Steve Gadd is a master drummer who has mastered the backbeat groove. I haven’t had personal experience with this set of wire brushes, but I have had and currently own other Vic Firth drum brushes and their quality is top notch and second to none. The telescopic feature is great when putting the brushes into a drumstick bag. Protect the brushes at all cost to keep your playing sweeping sounds smooth.
