VIC FIRTH INTRODUCES THE KEITH MOON SIGNATURE STICK!
Vic Firth Co., the world’s largest and leading manufacturer of drumsticks and mallets, is pleased to announce its first ever Keith Moon Signature Stick!
Keith Moon, legendary drummer with iconic British rock band The Who, was noted for his unique style and tremendous energy. He continues to be praised by critics and musicians to this day. Keith was posthumously inducted into the Modern Drummer Hall of Fame in 1982, becoming only the second rock drummer to be chosen. In 2011, Moon was voted the second-greatest drummer in history by a Rolling Stone readers’ poll.
At the invitation of and in consultation with the Keith Moon Estate, Vic Firth is excited and proud to immortalize Keith’s drumming legacy. The new Keith Moon signature model matches the exact specifications of the stick used by Keith throughout his storied career.
The Keith Moon Signature Stick is unique in its design with the combination of a medium shaft, fast-sloping medium taper and a length just short of 16”. Crafted in hickory with an oval wood tip, this stick packs plenty of punch when need and can work in a variety of musical settings.
“We wanted this new Keith Moon model to be made by the very best drumstick company,” states Keith’s daughter Amanda De Wolf. “By choosing Vic Firth, we have accurately replicated the design and provided the enhanced quality that Vic Firth is renowned for.”
