The music industry has a habit of sticking to proven formulas, which means that when something new catches on, it's worth taking notice - because it's probably a big deal. That's certainly the case with the aluminum drum sticks that put Ahead on the map. With virtually all drum sticks being made of wood, it was a risky move for them to branch out into metal. But the results speak for themselves, in the form of these ultra-durable aluminum sticks. They can take tons of punishment, and when they start to wear down, you don't need to replace them right away: just swap the interchangeable heads and sleeves and keep on banging the skins.

Best of all, longevity is only the beginning of what aluminum drum sticks have to offer. One of their key traits is that they're hollow, which has a laundry list of benefits. It makes them surprisingly flexible and springy, so they absorb vibrations instead of forwarding them into your hands. They rebound eagerly from the drumhead, making fast drumming a breeze. And on top of that, they're nicely balanced as well. All in all, you're looking at some fantastic sticks for playing hard and fast without giving yourself Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, which kind of makes them metal in more ways than one!

Like their wooden cousins, aluminum drum sticks come in a range of sizes and shapes to offer something for every drummer. If you want a fairly light and nimble set, your best bet will probably be something from the standard series of Ahead Drumsticks. Or maybe you play in a marching band? Check out the Ahead Marching SDC Drumsticks. On the other hand, if you're a heavy-hitter searching for some beefy aluminum sticks, you might consider a rock style like the Ahead XL Rock drum sticks, or a signature set such as the Ahead Spug Mudvayne/Matt McDonough drum sticks or the Ahead Lars Ulrich Drumsticks. No matter how you play, there's a pair of aluminum drum sticks waiting here for you.
