Link? Id like to try them...


I haven't used them (I'm a traditional practice pad kinda guy)...but here's the link to the VF page https://vicfirth.zildjian.com/gear/accessories/practice-accessories/universal-practice-tips.html. They're $5.99 for 2 pair. You can order them straight from VF or they are available at Guitar Center...I'm sure that they are available other places as well.
When in doubt...roll.

Throwback, he had some seriously quick and accurate hands.

I've had those rubber tips since they came out.

Heavy enough to change the balance of the stick fairly substantially, so I'm not really a fan, but they'll do in a pinch.

Unlike Steve I can afford a couple of pads to keep here and there. :lol:

The contrast between Steve and Dave is pretty significant in style...
with Steve the grooves are more "traditional and laid back" pre-electric
band era...Steve plays with much more space...both of course work well
