ATTESTER FRA LARS ULRICH OG ANDRE TROMMESLAGERE

 

 

Lars Ulrich

Besides being one of Metallica's founding members and main songwriters, drummer Lars Ulrich is also the band's spokesman. Born on December 26, 1963, in Gentofte, Denmark, Ulrich's father (Torbin Ulrich) was a nationally renowned tennis player, and it appeared as though Lars would follow in his father's footsteps, as the young Ulrich practiced hard on tennis skills. In 1973, his father took Lars to his first rock concert, to see the mighty Deep Purple in Copenhagen, which opened the youngster's eyes to hard rock and heavy metal. After he decided that the tennis life wasn't for him after all, Ulrich shifted his focus on music (namely the New Wave of British Heavy Metal movement: Iron Maiden, Saxon, Diamond Head, Motorhead, Def Leppard, etc.), and took up the drums.


H
is family relocated to California in the early '80s, as Lars promptly put an ad in the local music paper looking for other similarly minded musicians looking to start up a band (even though the NWOBHM had yet to make an impression stateside).

One of the first replies he received was from guitarist James Hetfield, as the pair agreed that they should form a band that was a reaction against the glam metal that had infiltrated Los Angeles at the time. Soon after, Metallica was officially born.

Several other bandmembers came and went, until a lineup consisting of bassist Cliff Burton, lead guitarist Dave Mustaine, plus Ulrich and Hetfield (the latter also doubling on vocals by this time) moved to San Francisco, building up a solid fan base due to their shows and a heavily circulated demo tape, No Life 'Til Leather. Metallica was offered a record contract with the independent label Megaforce if they agreed to move to New York, which they did, replacing Mustaine with Kirk Hammett in the process. Over the course of three releases, 1983's Kill 'Em All, 1984's Ride the Lightning (which was the group's first to be issued by a major label, Elektra), and 1986's Master of Puppets, Metallica became one of heavy metal's most promising new bands, until Burton's tragic death nearly derailed the group. With massive success just around the corner, the remaining members decided to carry on with replacement member Jason Newsted, resulting in such blockbuster releases as 1988's And Justice for All and 1991's self-titled release, which established the group as one of the biggest rock bands on the planet. The '90s saw more sold-out stadium tours and further hit albums (1996's Load, 1997's Reload, etc.), before Newsted exited the band in early 2001.

AHEAD Testimonials

II couldn't continue doing what I'm doing live or in the studio without your sticks. Everyday I'm grateful for your product. You guys have been very good to me and it means a lot. Thanks as always for all the continuing support.
Trey Gray/Brooks & Dunn

There is only one thing I can say about these drum sticks. OH MY GOD!!! these drumsticks are as I referred to when I first used them "these sticks are the Ninjas of all drumsticks". I remember reading the awesome comments before I bought my sticks, and every one of them is true. Great sound, great feel and vary little shock on your hands. plus replaceable parts. I highly recommend these sticks to all drummers!
Drew Anderson - St.Peters, Mo

Too many people write and complain about things in life so let me just assure you that this is not a complaint, far from it to be exact. I have just purchased the new Ahead Snare Drum and may I say that this is the best (without exception) snare drum that I have ever played or been lucky enough to own. The Snare is absolutely fantastic in every way and again trust Ahead to come up with the goods.
I have used Ahead sticks ever since I can remember and when I was ready for purchasing my last Snare Drum I looked and tried everything from Tama Star classic through to DW and let me say "Nothing even comes close." The crack from this drum is awesome and even makes playing the snare even easier due to the rebound on the drum and the rim shots are out of this world. Thanks for making this fantastic drum.
Garry Cooper - South Yorkshire, England

Hiya I bought a pair of Joey Jordison drum sticks about a year ago now and I have to say I will never go back to any other drum sticks. They are cheaper to up keep, very well balanced, and very well made. I would give anything to be endorsed by you guy's. Thanks.
Jason Sayers - London, Clapton, United Kingdom

Hey guys just wanted to say that i love those ahead drumsticks. I have been using them for just about 7 years now and i have only broken 4 sticks EVER! Being a metallica fan and seeing the sticks and hearing what lars had said about them and also seeing that tommy lee took a liking, i thought i would give them a whirl. They are everything they are meant to be and more. From the stick tape to the sticks. lol but anywayz i found one sticks worthy of it and i wrapped a stick just to test it out and aside from learning how to get it on the stick and keep it there, the stuff is awesome!! You guys are doing an awesome job with them. All the other drummers can waste money buying wood sticks. I will invest my money and use ahead sticks. Period.
JJ Davis -  Westminister, CO

Ahead drumsticks ROCK!!!!! I used to play with wood pro mark sticks and I kept breaking a pair every 5 days and now, I bought a pair of 5B and a Tommy Lee Silver Series drumsticks and I have better results than wood sticks. I am never going back to wood sticks again because compared to Ahead, they suck. I am glad I switched to Ahead drumsticks. Thanks for creating these cool drumsticks.
Alex Mercado - Streamwood, Il

I PLAY DRUMS IN A HEAVY METAL BAND SO I LIKE TO PLAY FAST AND HARD. WHEN I USE VIC FIRTH OR ZILDJIAN, I SNAP THEM WITHIN TWO DAYS OF PRACTICE. WITH AHEAD DRUMSTICKS, I BOUGHT A PAIR ABOUT A MONTH AGO AND I'M STILL USING THEM LIKE BRAND NEW. AHEAD DRUMSTICKS IS BY FAR THE BEST WHEN IT COMES TO DRUMSTICKS.
Chris Hodges - Des Moines, IO

I have been playing the drums for the past 17 years, and I just switched over to ahead sticks about 2 years ago. I have never used a wooden stick since!
David Fernandez - Santa Clara, CA

I have a pair of Ahead 5a drum sticks.  First off let me tell you I love these sticks,  They really reduce the vibration and are a lot easier on the hands than any wood stick I have ever used.
Chris Layne - Dayton, Ohio

I would like to thank you for making such great quality of drum accessories.  About a year a go, I decided to buy your ahead drum sticks from the local Guitar Center.  I was so pleased with the quality of work and engineering put into the stick that I bought some for a friend.  He was as pleased as I was.  Since then, I have continued to buy as many drum accessories made by your company.  I really appreciate what you guys do.  Thanks again. Ricardo Soria - Covina, CA

I bought one pair of the Joey Jordison signature sticks. Since I bought them, I will never play another type of stick again. Theses sticks are the best, most balanced stick I have ever played. Thank You.
Tim - Ballwin, MO

I just wanted to let you know about how i feel about your products. firstly, i bought a pair of you joey jordison model sticks, and from the first time i played them, i was hooked.after playing those for about a year, i decided to try a new model, so i went with the matt mcdonough model sticks. these sticks are just as amazing as the joey pair, and i switch back and forth regularly between pairs when i play(the ball tips on matt's pair provide excellent cymbal clarity). when i purchased the matt mcdonough pair, i also purchased a pair of your drummers gloves which i found to be an excellent product. the way they grip the stick is awesome. i will recommend your products to every drummer i know, and i will buy your products and support your company.
Tim DeBoer - Ballwin, MO

I just have to say your drumsticks are incredible because the feel is so good.
