Steve Smith: Tala Wand - Slats (TW4)

Vic Firth Signature Artist Steve Smith demonstrates the new TW4 Tala Wand and explains how the product came to life!

“As much as I love my two existing Tala Wand models, I felt there was another sound and dynamic level that could be achieved,” states Steve Smith. “What we have come up with is totally new as far as look, sound and feel. With the TW4, drummers can create a dense and deep tone that occurs at a dynamic level below that of drumsticks but above the level of the preexisting Tala Wands. Great new textures can be produced across the range of the drum set and I particularly love using the TW4’s in groove situations. They are a lot of fun to play with!”

The new Steve Smith Tala Wand – Slats feature a foam center that is surrounded with four flat bamboo slats wrapped in thin PVC. This provides a variety of unique sounds with great rebound and feel. This product is unique in that they create softer sounds than sticks but are louder than other Tala Wand and Rute models. A great choice for new sounds on drum set and multi-percussion set ups!
