Drum Heads

    Need new drum heads?

    You'll love Musicarte Store varied selection of heads. We maintain a large inventory of high-quality drum heads are designed and constructed to ensure your drums sound their best for a long time. A drum head with a warm tone and a balanced attack will fit great in most music genres, but how do you choose the best one for your kit? Let's review the key features you'll want to keep in mind.

    You can choose from clear, coated, black coating, mesh, and fiberskyn drum heads in our selection. Coated drum heads emit a well-defined attack and are extremely durable, but they have a shorter sustain due the coating’s subtle muting effect. The coating also lends them a nicely pronounced punch. If you love brighter accents, our non-coated drum heads will be your favorites. We carry non-coated heads in a variety of materials and thicknesses that produce different timbre, volume, and levels of sustain.
    1-ply, 2-ply, 3-ply drum heads — what's the difference? Thickness has a lot of influence on your final sound. Single-ply heads offer increased sustain and resonance, making them a preferred option for all you acoustic, jazz, and soft rock players out there. You’re unlocking a wealth of overtones and brightness when you choose a 1-ply drum head. For you heavy hitters playing heavier styles, such as hard rock or R&B, the 2-ply and 3-ply drum heads are ideal. They are long-lasting and durable, and they generate the focused, deep, and controlled, articulated sounds that you need. For a well-defined attack and a fat punch, these are an excellent choice.
    What about thickness of the individual plies? Thinner drum heads produce a bright and very complex accent with a sensitive response. Besides their additional longevity, thicker heads will amaze you with their wide tuning ranges and greater amounts of attack.
    When it comes to choosing drum heads, the bottom line is to consider which genres of music you usually play and what kind of sound you want to hear. If you're into a heavier sound, check out our 2-ply and 3-ply drum heads for their reliability and longevity. Any of our 1-ply heads will be perfect for those of you who prefer a lighter sound. For creating a bright and open sound, 1-ply, non-coated drum heads will work their magic flawlessly. For a louder, bigger sound, 2-ply or 3-ply are your best pick.
    Many of our Sales Engineers are expert drummers and drum enthusiasts. But whether they keep the beat or sing lead, they all know the characteristics, features, and benefits of the drum heads we carry. Give us a call, Marco and Michele will be happy to answer any questions and point you to the best drum head for your needs.
