Remo 26" Clear Pinstripe Bass Drum Head
PINSTRIPE™ heads have remained as one of Remo’s most popular drumheads since its 1973 introduction. The well-known and heavily recorded PINSTRIPE™ has a very focused low-pitched sound with moderate attack and response characteristics. PINSTRIPE™’s quick decay makes them ideal heads for the "fat" sounds of rock and R&B. They’re also considered ideal for creating a deeper, controlled drum sound in studio and live situations.
PINSTRIPE™ heads are made with two 7 mil plys with a measured layer of a ring-reducing agent applied between them at the outer edge of their trademark stripe. This internal muffling dampens the high frequency overtones for a warmer resonance.
PINSTRIPE™ heads are available in the classic clear finish, as well as coated for an even warmer, more controlled sound. There’s also a PINSTRIPE™ with an EBONY™ finish.
Clear PINSTRIPES™ have remained as one of the best selling drumheads since its 1973 introduction. A classic clear PINSTRIPE™ sound is an open, warm, resonant tone with plenty of attack. Some notable artists who rely on Clear PINSTRIPES™ include Lars Ulrich, Mike Portnoy, Gerald Heyward, Paul Leim, Julio Figueroa, and John Otto.
