Remo Skyntone Drum Head - Product Information

Remo Skyntone drum heads are designed for use on snare drums for both concert and drum set applications.

With minimal stick attack and controlled high frequencies the Remo Skyntone snare drumhead has a warm gut-snare sound even when paired with standard wire snares. In a concert setting the slightly subdued articulation makes it perfect for live concert halls where metal snare drums generally sound too sharp and tinny. For drum set, at higher tuning ranges the Skyntone provides a warm controlled sound with an excellent surface for brushes.

Sweet tone

Comments:

I recently purchased a used Premier APK bop kit with an 18" bass drum, a 12" ride tom and a 14" floor tom. I opted for the Powerstroke 3 coated batter on the bass drum, with a fiberskyn felt tone resonant head. Honestly, this combination gives me all of the depth and tone of my 22" Premier Resonator bass drum when I use it in a big band setting, and it can also be tuned up high for small group as well, while still maintaining the full tonal spectrum. I also opted for the Skyntone heads both top and bottom for the two toms, using a perfect 4th tuning between the batter and resonant on the 14" floor tom, and unison tuning for the 12" ride tom. For this particular drum kit, these tunings produced the best resonance and tone, and I am blown away by the way this particular head/tuning combination transformed this $300 used kit into something spectacular (I actually like it better than my Resonator kit, and that is saying something!).

Wonderful!

Comments:

Wonderful sound! Very controlled, solid sound. I really crank down my snare heads, and this head handles it with ease, with diminished high-frequency tones. I may have found my New Standard!

The Remo Skyntone

Comments:

A good sounding snare drum, like women in general, are somewhat of a mystery to me, with the former possibly mores. The components of a good sounding snare drum include the material of the shell, the shell bearing edge shape, the types of snare and batter heads, the snares, to put it simply. The 14 X 5.5 snare drum that I installed Remo Diplomat snare and Skyntone batter on is a custom 1/4 inch maple ply shell with reinforcing hoops. Both bearing edges are rounded inwards towards the center of the shell. The Skyntone batter sounds great, and as Remo states, the head features " . . . controlled high frequencies . . .". This is absolutely true. The Skyntone on my particular shell has no horrendous harmonics, but a wonderful fundamental tone. I also tried a coated Diplomat and the overwhelming harmonic prompted to return to the Skyntone immediately. I suspect the Skyntone should work well in a tom-tom application, if a full and round sound is wanted.
