Ahead Forced Me To Reevaluate My Playing

By Mike Gately

from Beloit, OH

I recently bought a pair of Ahead Metal Fusion 2B Aluminum sticks. I've always been against aluminum or carbon fiber because they just didn't compare to the natural wood feel but I'm pretty sure this particular style was made for me. They have polyurethane sleeves that you replace after too much ware. They're heavier, longer, more tapered and absorb 50% less shock. I was a non believer until I purchased this particular brand and size. I don't think I'll be going back.

I've played ahead for a while but just started using these sticks. The balance is perfect. Although the stick is fairly good size I find it easy to play with control and all volume levels due to the length, weight, and balance. Ahead gets a bad wrap for being 'basher' sticks but this is far from the truth. Why wouldn't any drummer benefit from the vibration reduction, consistency, and durability of Ahead sticks. I haven't seen any other drummers downtown Nashville playing with Ahead sticks. I don't understand the stigma but I believe if more players try them they will fall in love with them.
