The Rute 202 is perfect for the player who wants to really dig in while still retaining the classic Rute sound. Seven dowels (.480cm ) surround a thicker centre dowel (.640cm ). Now with new rubber handle for better feel! Vic Firth offers a variety of "brushes" designed to deliver a traditional sound or create bold new colours. Each model makes its own musical statement and provides the opportunity for an extensive range of effects.
