The Remo Pinstripe Coated 8'' Drum Head is from Remo's Pinstripe series, well known for being one of the most popular drum heads ever. The Remo Pinstripe features two plies of 7-mil Coated film, offering mid-range tones with a focused low-end and increased durability. The Pinstripe Coated Drum Head has an overtone reducing agent applied between the two plies providing overtone control with an increased attack and increased durability. The increased durability and attack makes the Remo Pinstripe Coated Drum Head ideal for pop, rock and grunge styles and genres.


About Remo

After World War II, the founder of Remo Inc., Remo D. Belli, was experimenting with PET film as a new material choice for drum heads. At the time, the idea was dismissed by many drummers because they preferred the sound of calfskin heads which dominated the market at that point. There were, however, some issues with the calfskin heads, such as their need for regular tuning, so Remo Belli went about solving these problems and creating a convenient solution for drummers. Using Mylar, a synthetic polyester film for drum heads, Belli was able to copy the look of a calfskin head, with a white and opaque look. Later developments of these drum heads included clear heads, two-ply heads, and simulated natural heads (Fiberskyn) which are still very popular amongst many modern drummers. Remo D. Belli died in April 2016, however, the company continue to lead the way in the drumhead manufacturing industry, supplying heads to a range of drum manufacturers including Pearl, Yamaha, Mapex, DW Drums, and many more.
