Remo is sort of a powerhouse in the drum industry - they make so many instruments, parts and accessories that it's pretty easy to build a Remo-exclusive kit from the ground up. So it's only natural that drum heads are included on their list of offerings, and when it comes to your kick drum, there's plenty of variety in this selection of Remo bass drum heads. Since every musical genre and drumming style has unique demands for kick drum performance, this kind of choice is exactly what it takes to make sure everyone can create their perfect signature sound. Go ahead and take a look at what Remo has to offer; no matter how you play, it's a safe bet there's a drum head here for you.
The most important factor in choosing a bass drum head is which side of the drum you're swapping out. For the audience-facing end, you'll want a resonant head such as the Remo Ebony Powerstroke 3 Resonant Bass Drum Head. These give the drum its projection and sustain, and some are available with port holes that add a little extra 'thud,' while also providing a natural spot for a microphone. On the other side of the drum, a batter head like the Remo Powerstroke Black Suede Bass Drum Batter Drumhead is the way to go. As the name suggests, these heads are designed to take a beating from your pedal, and since they're the first point of contact for the beater, they're instrumental in shaping the drum's tone.
Of course, there are some heads in Remo's lineup that can be used in either position. You'll also find graphic-printed models like the Remo Custom Graphic Blue Moon Resonant Bass Drum Head and the Remo Custom Graphic Flames Resonant Bass Drum, in case you're looking to boost your visual stage presence along with your sound. The best thing about Remo bass drum heads is how much they give you to choose from, so don't hesitate to read up on all the heads you see in this section - that's the first step to finding the best one for you!
