"I love the AHEAD Company and all the products they have. I have been playing AHEAD Drumsticks since 1994. They do not break!! At least I have never broken one and I play hard. With wood sticks from all the major brands, I literally shred them within a few hours. One pair of AHEAD Drumsticks last me 6 months before I need to replace the sleeves. 6 months!! With AHEAD Drumsticks my hands, wrists, and forearms never get fatigued. I never get blisters on my fingers or shocks to my wrists."
"I have been using AHEAD Armor Cases since 2012. They are by far the best drum cases I have ever used! I love their unique TruForm shape for ever drum case. I love the heavy duty Dynazip system and the way the cases actually stand on their own which makes getting my drums in and out of the cases easier and faster. I know my drums are protected inside the cases as they are surrounded by the DX-Core high impact foam padding. And I love that my AHEAD Armor Cases stack into each other for storage like a Russian Doll."
"Recently I purchased the AHEAD Spinal Glide drum throne. I am completely blown away by the full body comfortability and back support this drum throne gives me! Way to go, AHEAD! Another amazing product."
"I am so excited and honored to be a part of the AHEAD Artist Family and among so many great AHEAD Artists that I grew up admiring like Mick Fleetwood, Lars Ulrich, Tommy Lee, Tico Torres, and Rick Allen!"
