About Drum Heads
It's all about laying noise on skin. A set of optimal drum heads—or drum skins, as they are sometimes called—are a crucial element in creating the sound and response you want from your kit. Do not let the vast range of drum head options intimidate you. If you know what you want in the way of material and thickness, finding new or used drum heads on eBay is simple. Play on coated heads for greater stick sensitivity and a warmer, more focused sound. Chase down a clear drum head pack for a crisp, bright, loud note with lots of sustain. Playing jazz? Single play drum heads should keep you covered. Going more hardcore with a rock or heavy metal sound? Better make those two ply drum heads a priority for the sake of lasting durability. There are many options and combinations out there for serious and casual percussionists to choose from, so even once you have narrowed down your needs, you still have plenty of choices before you. Keep your kit sounding right.
