OVERVIEW

Quality construction, smart design.

The Ahead Stick & Mallet Tower Bag is the ultimate stick bag. It accommodates all of your sticks, mallets and other striking implements. It holds up to 30 pairs of sticks or 20 pairs of mallets. As is typical of Ahead products, the Armor Mallet and Drumstick Tower features and ingenious design, one that allows immediate access to any stick anytime, and yet is suffieciently low profile that it doesn't clutter your stage real estate. The top of the bag zips open and folds back out of the way, and velcro separators keep your sticks and mallets easily accessible. You can even preserve the time-honored tradition of attaching the Tower to your floor tom just as you might do with a conventional drumstick bag.

There is an accessories pouch in the top of the bag, as well as both interior and exterior pockets, and even a cell phone holder on the shoulder strap. It features a rugged, reinforced bottom as well to protect your inventory of sticks and mallets.

  • Holds 30 pairs of sticks

Comments about Ahead Armor Cases Drumstick/Mallet Tower:

This review is my initial impression of the product, and my impression of Musician's Friend's service.

I got this bag hoping to use it for quick stick changes during rehearsals and performances. I was excited to get four different compartments, so that I could fill each with a different stick size / type. It does have that, but with a caveat: this thing is massive, and the "divider" is just an "X" of 2" fabric that velcros in place. I'm glad that this holds 30 sticks / mallets, but you'll either be fishing the one stick you want out of a black hole mid-performance or trying to find it amongst 59 neighbors.

Since I couldn't find any dimensions on the website, I'll help you out. This bag has a diameter of 8", and is 17" tall - the height divides into a 13" standing portion and a 4" detachable top. The pocket on the top is quite small. I had hoped to put my Zoom recorder in there, but my wallet barley fits. The best legitimate use I can think of is that this pocket would hold a drum key and a spare hi-hat clutch.

Another nitpick I have is hat the top pocket comes completely detached, in a way that could become lost. With 2 D-rings, Ahead missed the chance to put one on the top pocket to keep the lid from being separated.

If you find yourself going through multiple pairs of the same stick during the course of a concert ( and I can see where that would be the case for metal or punk drummers, perhaps ) than this would be great, since you just grab any stick indiscriminately.

The build quality of this product is decent, and I suspect it would last a long time.

Given my initial impressions, it shouldn't surprise you that I wanted to return it. That's when I came across Musician's Friend's "Best in the Industry" return policy. The customer pays return shipping. The cost of "free" outbound shipping is deducted from the return. They will return payment "by check in 30 days." All told, I will only get "TwentyFive" back.

    Comments about Ahead Armor Cases Drumstick/Mallet Tower:

    Stands perfectly beside my floor toms and puts all of my sticks, mallets, rods, and brushes at my fingertips for a quick grab without getting hung up. Has enough room for a full arsenal of sound choices and stands firm in the heat of gig.

    Cool concept and cool bag

    Comments about Ahead Armor Cases Drumstick/Mallet Tower:

    I have no regrets about buying this bag. The fact that it stands up on its own is very cool. Everything​ looks to be pretty heavy duty and durable but we will see how it holds up over time. I wish they would have put compartments inside the bag for different sticks.
