Vic Firth Ralph Hardimon Nylon Tenor Sticks


We now offer pitch & weight preference options on this stick model! Please keep in mind that these are not a guarantee, but simply a way for us to hand-select a pair in stock that best suit what you're looking for.

A true extension of Ralph’s original tenor stick. Extra length provides comfort and rebound on modern multi-tenor drum set-ups. An exceptionally large barrel shaped red nylon tip creates a huge sound with tremendous clarity. Ralph’s new tenor stick is as big and bold as his existing model, but features a few design modifications for today’s marching repertoire. The exceptionally large barrel tip has been upgraded to red, injection- molded nylon for a brighter sound on high-tuned Mylar® heads. The overall length of the stick has also been stretched out from 15-15⁄16” to 16-3⁄4”. This added reach allows for greater comfort and speed when playing on modern multi-tenor set-ups, which tend to be further away from the player’s body.

Sound quality matters in modern marching percussion, and your sticks are just as important as heads, tuning, dynamics & design. We're proud to offer Pitch & Weight Preferences on this stick model.

No questions asked.
