VATER VHMJ2451, MIKE JOHNSTON 2451 MODEL HICKORY
This design comes from one of the most respected musicians in the Gospel scene and drummer for Israel Houghton and New Breed, Big Mike Clemons. Mike’s design measures out just under a 5B in the grip with an extra 1/2″ in length for added reach around the kit. With a quick taper and a classic acorn style tip for full drum and cymbal tones, this model is very durable and responsive. Mike’s model also features Vater’s Nude Series finish for a comfortable, unlaquered grip.
My stick model works well for me and I believe it will work well for you too. It’s durable for the power player and not too big and not too small…great for any hand size. It has the length that every drummer wants and has no finish so it doesn’t slip out your hands. – Mike Clemons
