Ahead Armor 22″ x 18″ Bass Drum Case
If it’s hard it’s a case; if it’s soft it’s a Soft Case, right?
Hot on the heels of those Cornish surfing dude Soft Case makers, Ahead Armor are making a huge splash in the drum case world with their fantastic range of tough, durable, padded, waterproof Bass drum cases.
Ahead Armor drum cases incorporate Ahead’s exclusive drum-hugging DX-Core providing 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 cases and the protection of the drums, all wrapped up in a virtually indestructible, weather-resistant, water-proof, double-stitched, 600-denier polyester fabric exterior.
Available to fit almost any Bass drum size you can think of, Ahead Armor cases all have the following construction features.
- Innovative teardrop shape (great for accomodating for RIMS type mounts)
- Ingenious cutaway design allows easy drum removal
- Patented TruForm design allows snugger drum fit
- DX-Core providing great shock-absorption properties
- Premium-grade Sherpa Fleece lining
- Double-stitched seams
- Patented DynaZip system
