Great drums can only sound as good as their heads. The drum head is most signifficant in shaping the sound of the drums, but usually manufacturers use generic heads, and leave this important possibility to influence the instrument to others. As our sound concept differs diametrical from most other drum manufacturers who usually strive for making the loudest drum, we offer a range of drum heads.
A quick overview: Heritage heads are single ply heads which have, due to a unique laminating, less attack and overtones and produce a warm, well defined sound, perfect especially for rooms that already sound bright and noisy. Due to the lamination these heads can be played with brushes too.
Should the drums sound more open, the single ply SP Classic are your weapon of choice. They produce more overtones, are a bit more sensible, have a huge tuning range and, coated, are perfect for brushes too.
For the heavy drummer who wants more punch, the dual ply DP Classic are your choice. They have less overtones, are esy to tune, keep tuning well, and.offer a good extra portion of punch and attack. Due to the little overtones, they are an excellent choice for live gigs and often need no or only little extra dampening. And if adrenaline kicks in, don't worry, this head will stand your beating!
A special lamination takes the else typical attack of the mylar head, for a full, warm sound; standard head on the worship series.
