Ahead 5B Rock – Metal Drumsticks

Ahead 5B Rock – Metal Drumsticks


Need help choosing drumsticks? Check out our Drumsticks Shopping Guide for an overview of whats available and some tips about what really matters when choosing drumsticks.


Ahead 5A Metal drum sticks are designed to last 6 to 10 times longer than wooden sticks. The great part is it is only the plastic sleeve that wears down, so when the sleeves need replaced simply take them off and replace! Replacement sleeves are half the cost of expensive brand sticks, and will last 6 to 10 times longer!

These sticks are ideal for drummers who are sick of breaking stick after stick and are looking for a hardwearing alternative. Of course the feel off the drum is different than wooden drum sticks but some drummers have grown to love the feel of them including Metallica’s Lars Ulrich.

Available in 5A, 7A, and 5B

At Drum Central we want you to be able to shop with confidence and are happy to offer a 2 year warranty and 30 day money back guarantee on all of our new products. (All products sold are considered new unless clearly stated. This includes ex display models.)

If within 30 days of receiving your purchase you decide it is not right for you providing it is returned in “as new” condition within its unopened original packing we will refund or exchange your item as desired. In cases where packaging has been opened we may be unable to offer a refund but in some cases will offer a refund that reflects the reduced resale value of the item.

We do our best to make sure every aspect of your Drum Central order goes smoothly but in the event that an item arrives either damaged or incorrect then notify us within 14 days and we will arrange a free collection so as to get the item swapped or replaced.

If your purchase develops a fault within the 2 year warranty period you can return it to us and we will repair or replace it. A fault is defined as a defect that you would not normally expect to occur through normal wear and tear and that has not been caused by improper use.
