At age 13, Tony Royster Jr. became the youngest drummer ever to become a Vic Firth signature artist. His first Signature Stick the STR came out when he was just 15 years old! Now nearly 20 years later, Tony has grown physically and musically and with these changes his stick preference has needed to evolve as well. The new STR2 stick is designed to match the needs and playing style of Tony today.
