i got this about a year ago now, and as it was impressive that the sticks never broke, it cracked every single one of my cymbals over the course of 1 year. i would not wish this on my worst enemy. im in the process of replacing the cymbals as i get the money. i would never reccomend these, stick with wood, when the sticks break its only $5 when cymbals break its $150-$300.

These stick are the BEST

By jonathan p chavarry

from woodbridge N.J.

Comments about Ahead Lars Ulrich Drumsticks:

These sticks are the legend. These sticks make a great sound on the drums and cymbals. They are really light. If you are a roll freak, These sticks make it the best possible way to make the rolls easy to do and it makes it very crisp. It also protects the life of your drums. When i was using wooden sticks i would replace a drum head every month more or less.Its been 2 and a half years and there arent even dents in the heads. Same with the cymbals. It has a loud and profound effect. But they are still as shiny and smooth as when i bought them

metal sticks....thats genius

By natezynski drumman

from baltimore MD

Comments about Ahead Lars Ulrich Drumsticks:

these sticks are great for what theyre made for. durability. ive had them for a few months (3-5. not really sure)and theyre not broken, and im a pretty hard hitter. only problem is that the covers get chewed up pretty fast. but theyre like, 5 bucks. i gave it a 4 cuz theyre pretty much good for metal and rock and such. if you like to use the handle for rimshots or wutever, then you wouldnt like these that much. since the handles are metal, its not good for the stick or the cymbals/rims to use them. other than that theyre awesome sticks. the idea to make metal sticks is just pure genius. very ingenuitive. i would say definately get them if youre into metal and hard rock, but if u like to use the handles and need a durable stick, get some thick wood sticks, like the thomas lang model or something.

The Ultimate Metal Drumsticks

By drummingmachine2

from Beaverton, OR

Comments about Ahead Lars Ulrich Drumsticks:

These sticks are great drumsticks. Not only do they give you an incredibly good grip, but they are balanced to perfection. Although they are on the heavier side they still make great sticks to play rock with. Also, they are the coolest looking sticks ever!! So if you dont have a pair, go and buy some.

Had them for years....

By ffemt751

from Charleston, SC

Comments about Ahead Lars Ulrich Drumsticks:

I haven't played for a while, but when I was playing constantly, they were the best I ever used. I used the same set for a couple of years and they never broke, and rarely had to replace the tips from wear. THE BEST!!!!!

a great stick

By Jonathon

from Kansas City, MO

Comments about Ahead Lars Ulrich Drumsticks:

Now, this, my friend, is a helluva stick. The core is exceptionally strong, and the tapers hold up like you wouldn't believe. And without the wood-chippings, this stick never loses its reliability. It feels just like it did when I first bought it two weeks ago, and doesn't feel like it's about to give in. Now, this stick is definitely made for rock drumming only. There is a handle area just below the fulcrum, so you cannot traditionally grip this stick. So rudimentary playing is out of the question. Also, this stick, like every other Ahead stick, is quite heavy. So this is definitely for those looking for a whole lotta impact without reservations. Also, what Metallica fan doesn't just get giddy at seeing the logo and Lars' signature on the handle?

Great sticks

By Devin

from keswick, Va

Comments about Ahead Lars Ulrich Drumsticks:

These feel great and I now prefer them over wooden ones. The only thing that i don't like about them is after a while of use the shoulder tends to get beat up rather easy from hitting the cymbals. But it doesn't really effect anything other than the feel of the shoulder, it will be rough.

Watch out

By Jason

from stl MO

Comments about Ahead Lars Ulrich Drumsticks:

I bought a pair of these YEARS AGO when they came out. I had beautiful PAISTE Visions cymbals. The plastic wore through, and within ONE SONG, I chipped the finish on ALL of the cymbals I played. Seriously, it messed them up...On another occasion, (yeah, stupid to give another chance) One of the tips came off, revealing the metal threaded end of the stick. METAL THREADED END VS PLASTIC DRUM HEADS AND CYMBALS EQUALS CATASTROPHIC DAMAGE TO ALL. HUGE DENTS IN THE DRUMS, HUGE DINGS IN THE CYMBALS...ALL IN ONE SONG LIVE. I'll stick to WOOD sticks thank you.
