> > > 25th Anniversary of AHEAD

When you think of products made by the AHEAD company, you probably think of something new, different and extremely useful. That is what the founding members were thinking about from the beginnig of it all. This great company celebrates its 25th anniversary this year.

Ahead Drumsticks

Let us quote a short story about the first years:

In 1992, Rick Grossman of Easton Sports approached then multi-store retailer Bob
Kasha with his design for a synthetic drumstick. Easton Sports had already enjoyed
great success as the leading producer of baseball bats and hockey sticks made from
aerospace-grade aluminum, but no one had ever seen success in designing a high
performance synthetic drumstick. The path was clear. Kasha became a consultant for
Easton Sports, and through his guidance the Advanced High Efficiency Alloy Drumstick
was born. He immediately saw that these new drumsticks had great potential and
founded Big Bang Distribution to supply them to drummers around the world. In 1994,
Kasha sold his retail stores to better focus on creating and distributing exciting and
innovative drum products. In 1997, Bob Kasha purchased AHEAD Drumsticks from
Easton Sports. Since then, AHEAD has become one of the world’s top drumming
companies, and has expanded its assortment to include snare drums, cases, practice
pads, thrones, bass drum beaters and a seemingly never-ending parade of smartly
engineered drum accessories under the AHEAD brand.”

To celebrate all this effort AHEAD has made an unique thing. It’s the special anniversary edition silver drumstick- Ahead 5B LTD!

Only 1000 pairs were made, and that are individually laser engraved from 1-1000, and include a Certificate of Authenticity signed by the CEO, mr. Bob Kasha!
