Subscribe to Rhythm and get a set of Ahead Bamstix and an Ahead practice pad

Ahead's new BamStix's are multi-rods made with bamboo sticks that is both lighter than old fashioned stick wood and many times more durable and strong. You'll love the sound they offer - a light, subtle tone, but versatile enough for heavier rock ballads or country shuffles as well.

You can also practice wherever and whenever you want to with the Ahead 7" mountable practice pad.

I'm MusicRadar's eCommerce Editor. In addition to testing the latest music gear, with a particular focus on electronic drums, it's my job to manage the 300+ buyer's guides on MusicRadar and help musicians find the right gear for them at the best prices. I dabble with guitar, but my main instrument is the drums, which I have been playing for 24 years. I've been a part of the music gear industry for 20 years, including 7 years as Editor of the UK's best-selling drum magazine Rhythm, and 5 years as a freelance music writer, during which time I worked with the world's biggest instrument brands including Roland, Boss, Laney and Natal.
