Watch the introduction video featuring Weinberg performing with the new Vater 908s.
Marking his 30th birthday, Slipknot drummer Jay Weinberg has announced his new signature series of drumsticks from Vater.
The 908 is symbolic for Weinberg as his birthday is 9/08 and the area code in which Weinberg started learning how to play drums with the 908.
Weinberg said of the collaboration, “Vater Drumsticks and I have developed a brand new stick that feels like a sharpened hybrid of the classic models I’ve been using since I was 14. The 908 feels familiar in the ways that drummers who play intense and heavy music need — but has extra consideration for the quickness and response we want from our drums and cymbals.”
The sticks are currently available at Vater.com. In the meantime, watch the introductory video showcasing the joint project.
