Kangaroo hide heads are suited to a variety of musical settings. They are perfect for jazz, orchestral, folk and contemporary performers seeking the raw, full-bodied, warmth that is often absent in a plastic head. Kentville's drummers. The heads are easy to tune, melodic, responsive and free of troublesome overtones. Hear the difference for yourself...
About the Heads
Each head is entirely handmade using a series of tasks and tools as old as western drums themselves. Today, Kentville lap the drumheads in the same way that they were lapped for the snares of the drummer boys that served in the Battle of Gettysburg and the Napoleonic wars. It's a process steeped in tradition.
Hide selection demands discerning examination before skins are deemed suitable for drumhead production. After being stretched and dried, the chosen hides are cut to size and thinned to attain the ideal thickness for producing heads. These precisely sized rounds are then lapped to flesh hoops before being set on moulds to dry and to form crowns which enable the heads to seat comfortably.
Only the finest quality drumheads pass our scrupulous final inspection.
