I would break a stick about almost every show and practice, costing about 8 bucks every time I play. One pair has lasted about 2 years, with just changing the cover and a few tips. They save you alot of money, you get used to the feel of them and won't go back to wood. I recommend 2 sets for live players, tips can eventually crack or come loose and fly off over time and I have broken one stick in half doing very hard rim shots. I also ruined the threads on one not noticing the tip came off right away playing live, so if the tips breaks live flip the stick to the butt end and finish the song with it or grab another stick while playing. No tip on it will also kill your heads. I also check tips to make sure they are not coming un-tightened between breaks to be safe, which doesn't happen often at all unless its a 3 hour jam

I bought these sticks because I'm a huge Metallica fan, also hoping they would be the last pair of sticks I had to buy as a casual drummer. However, I was very disapointed in them. Personally I think they are a better decoration than drumstick. These sticks are HEAVY, which is to be expected because they're made of metal, but it drastically limits playability. Recently the sticks broke also... not that I'm too dissapointed because the drummer of my band also broke his pair. I also noticed that the weight of the sticks takes away from the true sound of the drums, like they absorb sound. Wooden sticks lift much faster letting the true tone of the drums out. I just don't see them being worth the 30 dollars. Too heavy, too slow, too weak for the cash.

LOUD and CLEAR

By Angusfanno.1

from Indianapolis, IN

Comments about Ahead Lars Ulrich Drumsticks:

I bought these the other day and tried them out. These are the best sticks I have ever used! The are loud and the sound they produce is clearer than any thing I have used. I would recommend these sticks even if you are not a fan of Metallica. The price is a little steep but it's really an investment into your playing.

best sticks on the market

By VaterDOGG

from Paducah, Ky

See all my reviews

Comments about Ahead Lars Ulrich Drumsticks:

i own 2 pair of these sticks and they are the best on the market. the weight is distributed very nice for harder, faster playing. the tips sound great on all cymbals as well. i would recommend ordering some grip tape, extra covers and a new set of tips while ordering the stick. the covers and tips are cheap and easy to replace.

Sticks Last Forever - Cymbals & Heads Don't!

By ArkansasDrummer

from Arkansas

Comments about Ahead Lars Ulrich Drumsticks:

Yes, these Sticks will Last Forever! Replace the plastic parts about once a year for standard practicing and gigging.BUT over time they cut through Cymbals & Heads like they were butter!!! Sticks are too long and heavy, so you loose bounce and too much vibration causes sore hands!I loved the Ahead Sticks at first! Finally a stick that lasts for years with no breaing or splitering. After a month Evans and Remo Heads were gone! Only Aquarian Performance II Heads will take the beating! After a year started cutting through Zildjian Cymbals, and denting Sabians.I've played for 25 years on High School Drumlines, All-Region Honor Band, my College Drumline, and in Rock/Metal/Punk/Grunge Bands. I have proper technique, and I'm not a heavy hitter.Sticks that last forever seemed great, but not worth it when they start ruining more expensive Cymbals and Heads!I recommend trying: ProMark White Oak, or Aquarian X-10 Graphite!!!!

I've had these drumsticks for about almost a year and it doesn't look like it's gonna break anytime soon. I recomend it to any hard hitter who is sick of cheap broken sticks.

        Ahead Sticks

        By ZecsMarquis

        from Frankfort, IN

        Comments about Ahead Lars Ulrich Drumsticks:

        These are great for heavy drumming and take a long time to wear down and then you can just replace the taper! They are just a little bit heavy, making real fast drumming around the kit difficult.

        Comments about Ahead Lars Ulrich Drumsticks:

        They are the best sticks I have ever played. They're half the weight of my other sticks and they bounce back alot quicker when I hit my toms. Replacement sleeves aren't that expensive.

        Comments about Ahead Lars Ulrich Drumsticks:

        First of all, with covers, they're exteremely heavy. Rolls and breakdowns become impossible with them. I go through the covers like fingernails and they last as long or shorter as an entire wooden 5A/5B. I am a very hard hitter but that's still ridiculous for something so heavy. I played a while with really chewed up covers and now my warranty is void because the aluminum is completely torn apart. Maybe I was just unlucky but I could of saved 30$ and only made a couple woodstick replacements in the meantime. STICK WITH WOOD!

        I have had these sticks for years and they have never failed me. Good quality gives you good sound and best of all its durable. Better than the wood stick. These stick wont break on you. With replacable plastic heads what nore can you ask for? Worth the buy.

        Comments about Ahead Lars Ulrich Drumsticks:

        I got these sticks because I got tired of buying a new pair of wooden sticks every week, since the tips always cracked on my ride. So I got these since they are Lars' signature model. First they were a bit heavy, but I got used to it. I strongly recommend these sticks to any metal drummer, buy them, you will save a lot of money.

        Comments about Ahead Lars Ulrich Drumsticks:

        these are the best drumsticks i have ever had! i love them, they never vibrate, which i love. i play metal so i hit hard. they havent broke. i only had to replace the cover in 3 months. i love how you can replace the covers and the tips on the stick. the replacements are soooo cheap!!! the only thing that stinks is the price. but it diffidently pays for itself. the only thing i have to say is get the grip tape. the drumsticks were slipping out of my hands.

        Comments about Ahead Lars Ulrich Drumsticks:

        I had the Lars Ulrich Ahead sticks for maybe half a year. About a month ago I broke one of them in half. Not the taper but the entire stick. I'm not going to lie, I love these sticks but I thought they were supposed to be indestructible

        Really Good

        By BusEmptyDrmmr

        from San Angelo, Texas

        Comments about Ahead Lars Ulrich Drumsticks:

        These are really good sticks that you dont have to worry about them breaking. They really dont sound to good on the ride ot when youre doing a side shot. Relpacing the rubber cover is way cheaper than buying new stick. Overall buying these sticks is a good deal.

        These sticks are the Best thing on the face of the earth. They reduce the "shock" in your playing. They also keep your cymbals clean, as well as your drumheads. It's worth every penny you spend!

        I own this pair of sticks and they are amazing! They are really light and quick. As a metal musician I enjoy this and recomend ahead sticks to everyone. And they are especially cool because they are Lars Ulrich signature sticks ;)
