Ahead Armor Padded Bass Drum Bag

Protect your bass drum with the high-impact foam padding and Sherpa fleece lining of this Ahead Armor bag.
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 read more of the cutout.

"Love it!"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
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!
