    Comments about Ahead Marching Drum Sticks:

    I bought the M3 sticks because I couldn't afford to keep breaking and buying new pairs for marching band. I've had experience with Ahead before and have never particularly enjoyed the feel or sound of their sticks, but these were simply atrocious. They have a very long taper which pushes a ton of weight to the back of the stick, making diddles and buzzes very difficult to control due to the extreme lack of rebound and overall they just seem sluggish. They're very loud and hard for me personally to play articulately with them. One thing I noticed right within the first few minutes of playing is that these take a serious toll on your hands and vibrate hard. Also, if it's cold outside, the metal on the bottom third of the sticks makes your hands freeze like none other. Playing on a practice pad, you can hear the metallic resonance of the sticks and the stick clicks sound awful, but that's to be expected. But they won't break any time soon so I guess I got what I wanted in that regard. However, I would much rather spend a little more money on a few pairs of good wooden sticks than these.
