The revolutionary Hardware SLED from AHEAD Armor Cases combines the versatility and durability of a state of the art roller board system, originally developed by top travel and extreme bag designer, OGIO.

With a reinforced platform supporting a virtually indestructible, weather resistant, double stitched, 600 denier, polyester fabric case, plus a fully-retractable handle, over sized wheels and double-locking adjustable straps, the AHEAD armor SLED is more than tough enough to survive everything from local weekend gigs, to full on cross country tours. At 38" x 16" x 14", the AHEAD SLED is big enough to carry up to a complete set of stands, pedals, thrones, accessories or multiple snare drums

Yes, this may be expensive, but if you're anything like me this is the hardware bag for you. I'm a dad, have a full time day job, and gig with 2 separate bands in my spare time about twice a month. I'm not famous (yet!), and therefor have to lug my gear sans roadies. ALL. BY. MYSELF. I apparently either am a glutton for punishment, or have a serious issue with never having enough drums, cymbals, and all the hardware to hold them up. I play in a Led Zeppelin Tribute and a Rush Tribute. All of this equals a damn big kit to carry! After investing in a set of Ahead soft bags for my shells, I loved the quality. I have an expensive set of Tama Starclassics, and a ton of their roadpro stands to go with it. But silly me, I've never ponied up for the Ahead hardware sleds, and instead have gone through a number of cheaper solutions to carry all my stands. The hardshell golf travel cases, SKB versions (which broke!), bags, even a giant rolling job box I got from Lowes. Either they were too cheaply made and broke under pressure, or in the case of the rolling box, SUPER HEAVY when fully loaded, awkward to get in and out of the minivan, and difficult to roll around without smashing your shins and over stressing your shoulders and arms. So I finally decided to pay the money for these sleds. They are seriously worth it. I think they are the perfect balance of light enough weight to not make them impossible to handle, yet strong enough to take a beating and load up fully. I bought two, which is great because I have the versatility to load just one for the Zeppelin gigs, or both with EVERYTHING for the Rush gigs. They also have a clever velcro lidded pocket that runs the length of the inside top cover- perfect for your floor tom legs, small cymbal arm/clamps, stick bags, and misc junk. When loaded they can still stand upright as well, due to the design and hardshell bottom and back. It's pretty much exactly what you're looking for in a versatile heavy duty yet easy to handle soft rolly hardware bag. So how much can it fit?... I spread the following (mostly Tama RoadPro stuff) out between the two sleds: Double Braced: 1- Double tom stand 1- Combo tom/cymbal stand 1- Rototom stand 4- Cymbal boom stands 1- Roland HandSonic stand 1- Speed Cobra HH stand 2- Snare stands 1- RocNSoc throne stand and backrest as well as 1- Single braced straight cymbal stand 1- Single braced book cymbal stand 6- Floor tom legs 8- Cymbal boom arm with clamps 2- LP Jam Blocks (blue and red plus mounting brackets) 2- Cowbels - 1 trio and 1 large plus claw clamps for each. Yes they are both still heavy, but not unmanageable! And these bags hold up so well. Well worth the investment- don't wait, just get these already!!
