Well, not exactly. But Vic Firth Universal Practice Tips do effectively turn any hard surface into a practice area. This lets you build chops or practice rudiments anywhere you've got time to kill: like in line at the drive-thru or on hold with customer service. These soft rubber tips fit over standard drum kit drumsticks to protect surfaces from damage and marking. They're also quiet - a big advantage when you're in public and around loved ones. Nothing replaces your practice pad. But Vic Firth Universal Practice Tips will encourage you to practice anywhere your pad is not.
