Chris “Wombat” Womble's GO-TO’S

Ahead Armor Cases
I use AHEAD Drumsticks not only for their durability but for the way I feel after a performance. I am not physically drained like I would be using conventional drumsticks, meaning they seem to take a lot of the shock out of the hit. Drumming is very physical and frankly I feel really good after a performance. I have been using AHEAD Drumsticks, products and gloves for over 20 years. I found myself breaking sticks at every gig and feeling sore in my arms. A musician friend recommended AHEAD (Formerly Easton) Drumsticks to me because they are very durable. After picking up a pair for myself and playing with them for a couple of nights, I found that I didn't break them. The fact that I hit really hard and these did not break makes me want to tell everyone. Don't take my word for it, pick up a pair and choose for yourself. You'll be glad you did!
