DW Bass Drum Drum Heads
Drum Workshop may be best known for their hardware, but that's not the only percussion accessory they make. Far from it, in fact, and the DW bass drum heads in this section are all the evidence needed to show it. Like everything else DW makes, their drum heads are designed from experience, with passionate drummers pulling the strings. The result? A series of DW kick drum heads that's ready to compete with any of the competition. If there's one thing that DW proves with these heads, it's that a hardware company can pull off making major drum parts as well - and they can do a great job while they're at it.
Of course, making one's mark in the drum head industry does sometimes mean doing things a little differently. The DW Front Ported Bass Drumhead is a good example: instead of porting this resonant head with a single large hole, they went ahead and used a series of smaller ones instead. This does make the drum a little more challenging to mic, but the tradeoff comes through in the sound (not to mention its unique look). If it's a batter head you're looking for, the DW Coated Clear Bass Drum Head is one to watch. It's a single-ply head based on a Remo hoop and Dupont film, delivering a solid balance of resonance, dampening and durability in a range of different sizes.
Drums are all about choice, and that means every drummer is free to choose the drum heads that are the best fit for his or her instrument and tastes. The top-seller status is enough to show that DW bass drum heads have been that for quite a few drummers already, and if you like what you see while you're browsing this section, maybe it's time for you to join in? The results you can get with one of these kick drum heads mounted on your kit will probably speak for themselves.
