Wincent 55 Fusion Round Tip and Xl Sticks

Print

They may not be as well known as the Vic Firth and Promark brands, but these Wincent sticks certainly take some beating. Not new, but newly launched in the UK market, they are evenly balanced and have that ‘quality’ feel. We tried both the ‘round tip’ model and the standard tip ‘XL’. Clearly sticks are down to the personal preference of the player, but for weight and thickness these 55s were, for me, ideal. The Round Tip model was for me the more interesting of the two, as the tip is slightly larger than a normal round tip and gave added volume but retains the same definition and clarity, comparing well with my usual nylon tip models.
