Here's what Ahead have to say about the Ahead 5A Sticks
Before it was one of the top companies in innovative drum products, AHEAD Products Inc. started with just a pair of drumsticks, Advanced High Efficiency Alloy Drumsticks. These drumsticks were developed by Rick Grossman, a drummer and engineer at the Easton Company, the world’s leading producer of aluminum arrows, baseball bats, and hockey sticks made from aerospace-grade aluminum. Because it was strong, durable, and consistent as well as lightweight, Easton aluminum had quickly become the natural choice to replace wood in the manufacturing of sporting goods. Grossman figured it might also make an excellent substitute for wooden drumsticks. With Easton’s support, Grossman designed drumsticks with a hi-tech aluminum core and handle, threaded nylon tips, and a replaceable sleeve made from injection-molded polyurethane.
