OVERVIEW

Made with expertise garnered from one of the brightest talents in orchestral percussion.

The Tim Genis Concert Snare Stick was made with input from Tim Genis, the principal timpanist of the Boston Symphony Orchestra. Made from persimmon, which is known for its density, durability and high impact resistance, these sticks produce a full-bodied and slightly darker sound than other wood. The density also gives added power, allowing the player to avoid overplaying. Length = 16.81.


Harness the dark tone and tough durability of Persimmon wood in your next stick purchase! Order today.

Best 2 pairs of VF symphonic sticks!

Comments about Vic Firth Tim Genis Concert Snare Stick:

Get both of these - the STG and the STG2, and you're covered for almost everything you'd play. Concert bands, ensemble, solos. The STG General is great for versatile pieces. The taper is medium short compared to other concert sticks. but it's a quick taper, and the neck gets pretty thin right behind the teardrop tip, which produces awesome rebound and buzz capability. The STG2 has a bullet tip (almost disc shaped) and is great for fast or rudimental passages that are piano-mezzo forte. The STG2 has SUPER good rebound at low dynamics and low heights. Get them both. You won't regret. Both models are lacquered. The persimmon for these sticks may be different than Cooperman, because I think these may be heavier than most cooperman sticks. Regardless, the balance, versatility, and sound quality is just as good! Side note of a possible con - these are lacquered. So if you want a natural finish, just sand down the shaft. You can leave them sanded, or put tung oil on them.
