Vic Firth’s complete line of Rute is designed to provide the player with alternative sounds and feels across a variety of musical settings. Unless otherwise indicated, each Rute model features premium birch dowels secured in a birch drum stick handle. The handle provides a natural feel and can also be used for back beats, cross rim work and intricate patterns on the cymbal bell. A moveable band adjusts the effect from crisp to splashy.
For the Rute player who prefers a rubber handle and fixed position band. Designed for all-around playing. With 19 dowels (.125").
