Ahead 7A 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
