(Although, saying that as someone who’s had their favourite VF 1A sticks recently discontinued )
Apparently so, such a shame. Been using that model for decades I think.Wait, Vic discontinued the 1A? I've been trying to get a pair to try because they are about the only one that still makes that model. I guess that explains why they've been hard to get...
I don’t think the 1A has been discontinued. Firth are still trying to fulfill tons of back orders because of production slowdowns, so they’ve designated a lot of slower selling models as "out of stock", but they plan on starting to make everything again eventually. Sometimes when Firth designate something as "out of stock", some retailers have interpreted that as "discontinued" but that isn’t the case. It may take 6 months to a year, but I’ll bet the 1A will be back in production eventually.Apparently so, such a shame. Been using that model for decades I think.
Vater still makes 1A’s thankfully. London Drumstick Company also, so there are options.
