Vic Firth Ralph Hardimon Snare Drum Sticks are the most popular marching sticks out there. Their balance is exquisite thanks to the long taper, rebounding very quickly off the drum to grant the player a great deal of control.
A fat barrel-shaped tip helps you get the most sound out of every stroke without feeling too heavy - in fact, these sticks actually feel quite light in the hands.
Made of strong hickory, these sticks can handle a beating (but if you play a lot of rim shots you should still reinforce them with some stick tape). The white painted finish looks great from the audience's perspective.
