It all started with a pair of drumsticks...
In 1992, Rick Grossman of Easton Sports approached then multi-store retailer Bob Kasha with his design for a synthetic drumstick. Easton Sports had already enjoyed great success as the leading producer of baseball bats and hockey sticks made from aerospace-grade aluminum, but no one had ever seen success in designing a high performance synthetic drumstick. The path was clear. Kasha became a consultant for Easton Sports, and through his guidance the Advanced High Efficiency Alloy Drumstick was born.
He immediately saw that these new drumsticks had great potential and founded Big Bang Distribution to supply them to drummers around the world. In 1994, Kasha sold his retail stores to better focus on creating and distributing exciting and innovative drum products. In 1997, Bob Kasha purchased AHEAD Drumsticks from Easton Sports.
Since then, AHEAD has become one of the world's top drumming companies, and has expanded its assortment to include snare drums, cases, practice pads, thrones, bass drum beaters and a seemingly never-ending parade of smartly engineered drum accessories under the AHEAD brand.
For the last 25 years we have stayed "Ahead of the Grain" by being the best listeners. We listen to what every drummer and percussionist has to say whether they are a beginner or touring professional. We let their necessity be the mother of our invention. We have all of you to thank for all the great new products and innovations we have brought to the market so far.

We stand behind every product that we make and we stand behind all of you.
