At the NAMM 2012 show, Ahead Armor Cases presented the expansion of its full line of Latin and World Percussion cases: the company introduced new cases for conga drums and djembes.
The new cases incorporate Ahead’s exclusive "DX-Core" dual-foam interiors with Sherpa Fleece lining and a sturdy, water-proof exterior for protection. They also feature "Tuc-Away" backpack-style straps, double-stitched handles and the patented Dyna-Zip Plus design.
The Dyna-Zip Plus zipper runs down the entire length of the case as well as around the top to make it faster and easier for drummers to take the instruments in and out of the case. The Tuck-Away straps and heavy-duty handles provide increased portability for drum circles, rehearsals and gigs.
