Synthetic sticks built to last.

XL Rock series aluminum sticks with replaceable nylon sleeves really pack a wallop. They feature the largest diameter (.620") of all of the Ahead sticks and are built for optimum sound projection and durability, with ergonomically tuned handle diameters.

Precision alloy cores provide negligible weight and balance variations. Super-hard replaceable polyurethane covers protect both sticks and gear. Vibration-reduction system reduces hand fatigue. The XL Concert is 16-5/8" long, the XL Studio is 16-1/4". Each features super-short taper covers.

The Sticks I Use

Comments about Ahead XL Rock Drumsticks:

I've been using these for some time now. I have three pairs instead of a case of sticks. These really hold up.

Miracle Invention

By Jeremy-eshgy

from Southside VA

Comments about Ahead XL Rock Drumsticks:

These sticks are the epitome of modern drumming. They are tough, heavy, and money saving. Tough because the Super Short Tapers can take an insane beating and help with the vibration reduction. The vibrations from wood was a huge factor in buying these. Heavy, in a good way, you become so accustomed to the weight they'll be flying in your hands. Buying tapers is all you really have to replace on these things, way better than buying new wood sticks constantly. I bought the XL Concert, I suggest buying the Studio sticks, because the Concert Nylon tips are nowhere to be found. The Studio tips can be bought in long island or somewhere. There is no better music site better than Music123, but they do not sell the Concert or Studio nylon tips. Keep that in mind when buying these sticks. Other than that these sticks are the absolute best in the world and I will play nothing else.

Excellent sticks

By Kyle-auPx8

from Whitby, ontario, canada

Comments about Ahead XL Rock Drumsticks:

I have been using these sticks for a while, and they're excellent. They are very big and heavy, and I play at least two times as long with these sticks as I did with wooden sticks.
