I've been playing with AHEAD sticks for about a year and half, and have been a believer ever since I first tried them. These sticks are nothing short of amazing! I started out with the 5A's, liked them alot but found the Joey Jordison's(Slipknot), and then I found the Matt "sPuG" McDonough's(Mudvayne) which is now my weapon of choice. The weight and balance of these sticks are perfect for my style of playing, which is alittle bit of everything. From hard rock to jazz, metal to alternative. The Acorn tip is round like a little marble, instead of looking more like a jelly bean like most nylon tip sticks, which means it hits perfectly from any angle. These sticks will definatley improve your playing, I guaruntee it! And for the people that either have the severe problem of dropping sticks due to sweaty hands, blisters, cramps,etc., try the AHEAD gloves. They work wonders for your hands.

they dont last

These sticks sounded like a great idea/value. Then I used them. They play great but the covers only last me about 3 practices or shows. The plastic just gets chewed to hell...Read complete review

These sticks sounded like a great idea/value. Then I used them. They play great but the covers only last me about 3 practices or shows. The plastic just gets chewed to hell by the cymbals. They mite b ok for a drummer that doesnt play much but I play 6 days a week and they last about half as long as a pair of 747s.

Good Buy

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about Ahead Spug Mudvanye/Matt McDonough Drumsticks:

So far, I've had these for two months, and they've held up terrifically. I haven't had to replace the covers or anything to keep them maintained well. The only complaint I have is that there is a plastic spacer in between the nylon cover and the handle that cuts my thumb while I play sometimes, but that just has to do with my grip. Definitely happy I got these.

the way to go

By Savage-DQZib

from Cheyenne, Wy

Comments about Ahead Spug Mudvanye/Matt McDonough Drumsticks:

These sticks have done wonders for me. I wanted them initially because i was breaking too many sticks. At first i had an issue with the sleeves not lasting long enough but it became clear to me the the problem was in my technique not these sticks. I tightened up my technique and now they are flawless. They provide excellent attack and transfer minimal vibrations. If i could give it a 6 out of 5 i would.

God's Drumsticks

By TheNextSpug

from Fort Worth, TX

Comments about Ahead Spug Mudvanye/Matt McDonough Drumsticks:

I have gone through almost every pair of drumsticks imaginable, and by far, the Ahead Matt McDonough sticks have the best balance, rebound and are some of the loudest sticks due to the slightly smaller scale of the sticks, which allows for strength to be channeled more directly than standard sticks. also the sound on the toms and snare are just perfect for harder types of music, obviously not for softer music(if this is what you play why are you even here?). These also last a rediculous amount of time. I've had these for several months now and I haven't even had to change the tips or sleeves even once. All in all, these are the best drumsticks you'll find out there!

Ahead 7A Matt

By souldeadrums

from Killington, VT

Comments about Ahead Spug Mudvanye/Matt McDonough Drumsticks:

The feel, rebound, and consistency of Ahead sticks is noticeably better than their wooden counterparts. I initially switched from wood to aluminum because I was tired of breaking sticks and having my drums covered in sawdust. While the Ahead product certainly lasts longer than wood sticks, they DO break and I'm not entirely convinced the slightly longer life justifies the significantly higher price. But the durability coupled with their undeniably better playing characteristics (for me anyway) makes the Ahead sticks the superior product. They are all I use now.
