OVERVIEW

A stylish, durable snare case with a unique teardrop design.

The Ahead Armor Snare Case has some innovative features that are truly worth a detailed investigation. All of the cases have a heavy-duty, waterproof, 600 denier polyester exterior, complemented inside by their "DX-Core": two layers of high-impact foam padding and a soft interior lining of premium Sherpa Fleece. This combination offers the snugness and smaller dimensions of soft cases, while still retaining the resistance and strength of hard plastic cases.

Another great feature can be found by looking at the shape of the cases themselves: they are designed to hold not just the drum, but the mounted hardware as well; no need to shove your expensive drum into a case that just doesn't quite fit. Finally, Ahead Armor Cases has made it easier than ever to get your drum in and out of its case with the 'Dynazip' zipper. The cutaway design allows the top and bottom of the case to completely separate, eliminating tight squeezes and vacuum effects.

    Comments about Ahead Armor Cases Snare Case:

    I bought the 13x7 guy for a brand new snare drum of the same size a few months ago and this is just perfect. solidly crafted, not too heavy and, for a bag not a case, exceeded my expectations of protection. honestly, zero complaints. in the past i've used ONLY cases and never a bad before so i was second guessing myself after ordering it but once it arrived i'm glad i chose this and didn't spend the extra $30/$40 or so on the other case i was looking at. i recommend this.

      This is an excellent bag. Good protection for a bag. Well made. The zipper is great. Doesn't feel cheap. And I love how the top half opens up completely which makes putting the snare in and taking it out very easy. Easier than with other bags. Looks nice also.

        This are a very similar to the Protection Racket line. If you know their quality, you will find that in Ahead drum bags as well. I owm both products and i really can't find a difference beside the logo. Good quality and well made. Protects securely the snare drum

              Good bag and design overall, I use one for a Pork Pie Lil Squealer 7x13 snare. I don't recommend these bags if you have a VERY heavy snare drum over 12 lbs. I have a new Premier HR1480 which weighs 14.5 lbs. That drum is better suited for a case based on it's shape and weight.

                Comments about Ahead Armor Cases Snare Case:

                I have a 12x6 Pork Pie Lil' Squealer snare drum that needed a case, and this case (12x7) is the closest I could find to that size. It fits great, the extra 1" is not an issue; snare fits nice and snug. There is room built in for the snare mechanism, zippers seem to be quality, and the padding is rather plush. There is nothing fun or glamorous about buying a snare case, but I am totally stoked on this case for the price.

                    Thsee are pretty good cases. The way they are cut allows drums to go in and out easy and quickly. They do leave fuzz from the interior of the case on your drums; that seems to lessen after you use them for awhile. Zipper seems strong. As do the straps

                    I don't like the huge logo on the case. Feel like they should pay me for carrying the logo on them. Yes, they are that huge... a little snug around my pearl free floater; but fits...

                        Comments about Ahead Armor Cases Snare Case:

                        I like these bags because they are rugged yet plush inside, and easy to open and get your drums in and out of quickly. Since they are bags they are more form fitting and you can get them in spots where hard cases take up too much room. Yet your gear is still protected, and not as heavy to carry around as hard cases.
                        Bottom line is these are really good cases for the money. Armor's website contains good info on how to size your bags, and when I emailed their support with a few questions on bags for oversided floor tom leg mounts their responses were quick and helpful.

                            I love the interior and clam shell design of the bag. There are no other bags that have that combination. My only quibble, is that the handle doesn't line up with the top of the bag, which makes setting the snare bag down a little awkward. Minor discrepancy, but manufacturers need to take note.

                              Typically I transport a couple times a month for gis and weekly to a practice. Though it's only been a couple weeks, this is a perfect fit for my needs. Good everyday protection, useful for my amount of travel. Didn't need or want a bulky hard case, but even if I transported my snare more, this would work great. Very lightwieght and easy to carry with a little extra room for the throw off. Nice that they had it in a 7X13 and was very affordable (at least when I bought it).

                                the easy of placing and removing the drum in this case is much easier that the old standard round shaped cases

                                  Another very established brand was not in stock in size needed, sorry to say. But it worked in my favor, as this is a better bag. The padding is more substantial, and the "teardrop" sort of shape gives room around the edges. Solidly built, too.
