He taught and studied with Fred Sanford and studied with Charles Dowd at the University of Oregon. Following Fred Sanford's departure after the 1980 season, Hardimon became Director of Percussion for the Santa Clara Vanguard in 1981 and kept that position through 1990, during which time SCV won four High Percussion awards (1978,1979,1988,1989) and three DCI World Championships.

VF7AW  Vic Firth American Custom 7A Drumsticks

American Classic Hickory Drumsticks

The American Classic line combines tradition and Vic Firth style. With bold designs for fuller sound, the Classics are turned from select hickory - a dense wood with little flex for a more pronounced sound. Hickory is also capable of withstanding a great deal of shock, making it highly durable.

The wood tips are deeply back-cut for intensified cymbal response. The nylon tips are similar in size and shape to their wood counterparts, providing enhanced performance and a feel closer to their original wood tip models. Nylon tips are the most durable and brightest sounding on cymbals. Click here to see the nylon-tipped versions of the American Classic sticks.
