FIRST LOOK

Remo ColorTone heads

Rhythm - - BEAT! -

While the pri­mary func­tion of a drum head is to ex­tract the best tone from your drum shells, they’re not much to look at and those crisp looks fade quickly once they’ve been played in. For a long time drum heads came in just two flavours, clear and coated (with a few fi­bre, Kevlar and graphic op­tions thrown in for good mea­sure), but Remo is on a mis­sion to add a splash of colour to drum­mers’ lives.

For its daz­zling new ColorTone heads, the Californian com­pany uses in­no­va­tive Skyn­deep Imag­ing Tech­nol­ogy to in­fuse pig­ments of colour into the sur­face of the My­lar, with­out com­pro­mis­ing the sound, vol­ume and pro­jec­tion of the head.

Cur­rently, you can choose be­tween bright orange, yel­low, red, green, blue and smoke colours, in a hand­ful of head types – Remo’s Pow­er­stroke 77 (2-plies of high-strength My­lar film with an added 5-mil Con­trolled Sound Dot on top and a 7-mil damp­en­ing un­der­lay ring), Em­peror (2-plies of high-strength My­lar film), and Pow­er­stroke 3 bass heads (sin­gle-ply 10-mil high-strength My­lar film com­bined with a 10-mil un­der­lay damp­en­ing ring) are all avail­able in ColorTone vari­ants.

Whether you set­tle on a sin­gle colour to com­ple­ment the fin­ish of your kit or match your stage out­fit, or em­brace the rain­bow with an as­sort­ment of colours, you should have no prob­lem find­ing the right combo and sound to suit your style.
