Vic Firth Honored at Musikmese
Vic Firth Company received two prestigious awards for the best products in their chosen category at the 2011 Frankfurt Musikmesse.
The first was the PPVMEDIEN Leser Award, which recognizes the best instruments and equipment of the year based on various readers polls in magazines such as Soundcheck, Keys, Tastenwelt, Drumheads and Guitar. This year, the PPVMEDIEN Lesser award was presented to Vic Firth in recognition of the Vic Grip Extreme 5A.
Vic Grip is an eco-friendly, water based urethane that is extremely durable and an ideal choice for players who prefer an enhanced grip on their drumsticks. The Vic Grip line was recently expanded to include the Extreme 5A and Extreme 5B models.
During this year’s Musikmesse event, Vic Firth Company was also awarded the Musikmesse International Press Award (MIPA) in recognition of the Vic Firth Kinetic Force stick. By adding a more dense material to the butt end of the new Kinetic Force sticks‚ they can be played longer and harder with less fatigue. The Kinetic Force drumsticks are offered in 5A and 5B sizes.
