Ahead Armor Padded Floor Tom Bag

The Ahead Armor bag's teardrop-shaped TruForm design snugly fits most drums with mounting hardware, while DX-Core material provides rigid, sturdy protection.
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 tom 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.

"Easily the best drum bag on the market"

These Ahead Armor cases are truly amazing. You can tell that a lot of thought and effort went into the design, based on real-world conditions for everyday working musicians...and at a ridiculously affordable price. They are stiff, tough, thickly padded, plushly lined, waterproof and easy to load and unload, thanks to their unique shape and zipper design. I've tried other bags (and hard cases) over the last 30+ years and nothing else even comes close, in terms of overall quality and ease of use. One minor recommendation I have to anyone purchasing these is to vacuum out the fleece lining thoroughly before loading your drum inside for the first time, as my drums were covered with a small amount of loose fleece residue after the first time I took them out of the cases. No big deal... :-)
