Skin-like sound.

A warmth, sensitivity, and articulation reminiscent of calfskin all characterize Rennaisance heads. These heads have a very warm and tonal sound that's great for melodic expression and affords a wider, more balanced sound spectrum for tympani, snares, toms, and bass drums in any drumming application.

For snare drums and timbales, the textured surface provides excellent stick and brush response that will not degrade under harsh playing. For tom-toms, Renaissance combines the warmth and depth of laminated heads, the clarity and response of coated heads, with the resonance and projection of clear heads. For bass drums, Rennaisance creates a deep, round sound with a low fundamental and moderate attack. This combination allows a low pitch and high degree of control over decay as tuning and a variety of muffling techniques to modify the pitch and attack in acoustic and mic'd situations.

  • Amazing Heads!

    As reviewed by Jeff Popaeko on 4/2/2010

    I have used the Diplomat, Ambassador and Emperor weights of these heads, and all are excellent depending on the drum and your tuning preferences. I first tried the A-heads on my '50s Slingerland toms, but those were too ringy even with careful tuning. Those drums sounded way better with the E-heads. Point is, you may need to try different weights to get what you're after. I used a D-head on the snare, perfect. I now have an entry level Gretsch jazz-bop set. With the lighter-weight shells, I opted for d-heads on the toms as well as the snare, perfect. These heads have a wonderfully unique sound. The fact that the texture is integrated instead of a coating is a great benefit as these hold up way better than coated heads. Great for brush work. The color is calf-skin like for a retro look -not at home on all drum finishes so make sure it's what you want. I also use a REMO PS-3 head on my kick batter with a FiberSkyn PS-3 head in front. Some other companies make excellent heads, but I remain loyal to REMO. These Renaissance heads are a big reason why -unique, innovative, durable, absolutely outstanding.
