Remo ColorTone heads
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.
