There's no question that having the right gear is a vital part of the drumming experience. That means picking out the sticks, shells and hardware that are best for your personal style - and something that's just as important is having a great set of heads on your drums. When you're looking to upgrade a single drum at a time or to mix and match for a completely customized set, individual drum heads are naturally the place to start. With the "Ã la carte" options in this section, it's easy to get exactly what you need.
The very first drums used real animal hides, which certainly explains why some people call them 'skins,' but those have been mostly replaced by modern synthetics. Individual drum heads with the same feel and sound as classic hides are still the go-to choices for hand drums like the bongos, so if you're looking to perk up your world percussion you can start there. The Remo Medium NuSkyn Conga Head is a great example of a synthetic skin drum head. If you prefer to play the real thing, of course, you can find that as well with options such as Schalloch's Djembe Goat Skin Replacement Head.
One of the best places to experiment with different drum head materials is the bass drum. Not only can you get synthetic skins like the Remo Powerstroke 3 Fiberskyn, but there are also a ton of different plastics to choose from, not to mention hydraulic heads, which have a thin layer of liquid sandwiched between the sheets of plastic to keep resonance under control and add emphasis to fundamentals and overtones. There are even bass drum heads with ready-made graphics on them to give you that extra dose of stage presence you might be looking for.
Bass and hand drum heads are only the beginning of what you'll find here, so don't hesitate to dive in and check out the entire line-up. Whatever you're looking to build or upgrade, from snares and toms to tumbas and quintos, the individual drum heads for your percussion setup are right here, waiting to be found.
