|WHAT OUR TEAM THOUGHT|
If you want to find affordable drum heads for your whole drum set, this might very well be a great option! Especially if you’re playing genres like pop or jazz and want a 1-ply, coated drum head that gives you a nice, living tone. Remo is a well-renowned brand that many drummers have great confidence in and that you can trust too. Did you know? Remo D Belli invented the first successful synthetic Mylar drum heads, which is standard today, in 1957!
This is a really good drum head for snare drums that will take away those annoying overtones that makes your tone muddy. You will be left with a nice, clear and crisp tone. The reverse dot is great since it’s not in your way while playing. It’s also available in a single ply version with a reversed dot and a 2-ply version without it.
