Product Description

Used by such top artists as Adrian Young, Thomas Lang, Cora Coleman, Danny Seraphine and Thomas Pridgen, the Ahead Armor Cases feature an innovative teardrop shape along with several additional breakthroughs in drum case design and construction. Ahead Armor Padded bass drum bags distributed by Big Bang Distribution set a standard for strength and security. These drummer-friendly cases not only advance the state-of-the-art, they offer drummers today's most progressive system for safeguarding their instruments.

The advantages of Armor cases begin with their unique shape. Employing Revolution's patented "TruForm" design, the shape of each case corresponds to the "true" shape of the drum plus its mounting hardware. This universal, teardrop design allows a much snugger drum fit.

Armor cases incorporate Ahead's exclusive "DX-Core". The drum-hugging DX-Core provides the stiffness of two layers of high-impact foam padding plus the softness of premium-grade Sherpa Fleece lining. This increases both the shock-absorption of the bags and the protection of the drums. Yet, the plush interior of each case is complemented by the strength and durability of a virtually indestructible, weather-resistant, water-proof, double-stitched, 600-denier, and polyester fabric exterior.

The patented "DynaZip" zipping system makes it easier to take the drums in and out of the cases-combining an ingenious cutaway design with a zipper that travels along the diameter of the case as well as down both sides of the cutout. In addition to the full line of Ahead Armor drum and percussion cases look for additional Armor cases and accessories in 2011, including a revolutionary hardware case featuring the proven "Sled" design as well as a one piece, folding "Drum Mat" system featuring a compact travel design.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (4 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Love it!"
Overall: I spent weeks reviewing drum cases. I had just bought a set of DW collectors series drums and was very nervous about what I would trust to protect them!! I kept going back to the Ahead case because I loved the zip feature, the thick soft lining and shape of the bag. My biggest concern was would it be tough enough to withstand being banged around from the rigors of gigging?! The answer is yes!! This bag is super tough and seems to be able to withstand as much as a hard case at a much lower price and easier to carry! When you unzip the bag it stands on it's own rather than collapsing like most soft cases. I think it's kinda the best of both worlds! I would def recommend buying this bag!
Style of Music: Rock. In an original band called and she did.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Ahead Armor Padded drum bags!"
Sound: Not required Feature: True form fit, thick plush padding and tough denier outer layer. Easy zip, with great handles. Ease of Use: Very easy to use. From putting the drum in to taking them out and carrying them all in between. My load time was cut in half, with the help of these babies. Quality: These seem to be top quality. Everything looks to be double stitched and well sewn together. This looks as though it could last for years! Value: This is well worth it's typical selling price, compared to others I have had in the past. Manufacturer Support: Never need them. The Wow Factor: The inside looks to be cozy,comfortable, and safe, which is exactly where I would want my babies to stay during transport. Overall: These are the best drum bags out there. I have used the Humes and Berg Tuxedo bags. I had to fight with them to get the drums in. Also had to order them a size bigger for the rims mount. The Ahead Armor bags open up and the drum lays right in. Same size as my drums, and no needed help from the bass player to get them in! I LOVE them!
Style of Music: Rock, Classic Rock, Country, Blues.
