The Vater Extended Play™ Series is an extremely durable drumstick that has two distinct features to help address issues of common wear and tear on a players’ drumsticks. The first feature is a pearl-colored, specially formulated durable finish that protects the tip and shoulder area of the stick to slow early chipping and cracking. The second feature is our exclusive 3 inch “ Stick Shield™ “ located in the rimshot area that is highly impact resistant and 8X stronger than Steel with maximum tensile strength. The grip area of the stick has the same great-feeling finish as found on all Vater Sticks. Extended Play™ sticks offer the optimal balance and feel of a Vater hickory stick, with advanced durability and resistance to rimshot fatigue and breakage. Patent Pending.
