Ahead Drum Sticks & Mallets
It's easy to tell how dedicated Ahead is to all percussion styles when you consider how extensive their catalog of drum sticks and mallets are. Not only will you see signature series sticks from popular drummers like Lars Ulrich and Tommy Lee, but you'll also find short and medium taper sticks, models specifically crafted for recording in the studio, and even replacement polyurethane covers and grip tape. For those who always wanted to try brushes, check out the Switch Brush Wired Retractable Brush with Trip (Pair). Designed to meet the exacting standards of jazz drummers, these brushes are ideal for any creative drummer who wants to expand on their percussion abilities.
Ahead even crafts sticks for marching bands, and the Marching SDC drum sticks are one of the best-selling pairs. Made from aircraft grade aluminum and boasting cushioned grips, these sticks are designed for today's hardest hitters, and although they're aimed at marching band percussionists, they're also excellent for players who drum in genres where additional volume is needed, like punk and metal. Simply put, you'll have no problem making your performance heard when you're armed with these killer sticks.
As your tools of the trade, the sticks or mallets you go with should be chosen wisely, so you can be sure that every whack and thwack you make reflects the talents you've worked so hard on perfecting. With that in mind, Ahead is proud to provide you with sticks that will never hold you back while you're practicing or performing live, and only highlight your strongest playing attributes.
