The old Pinstripe. Gotta love it. I have played Remo Pinstripes on and off since I started drumming 5 years ago. They are very well known in the entry level drumming scene, but don’t let that deceive you. These heads are great for all types of music, like rock, pop, fusion or even country. But like all piece of drumming equipment, it has its pros and its cons.

We’ll start with the pros of the Remo Pinstripe head. First off, like I said earlier, this is a very versatile drum head. It can be thrown on as a primary head, or even a replacement head, in just about any musical situation. This head produces a very “fat” “warm” or even “wet” tone. If you tune your resonant head well you can get a lot of ring and resonance out of the pinstripe even though it’s sometimes looked down upon for being a “dead” sounding drum head. There are rings that run along the edges of the drum head, in between the two plys, that dampen unwanted undertones that can ring throughout your playing.

Now it’s time to talk about the cons of the drum head. Like I said earlier, there are rings that run along the edges of the drum head, in between the two plys, that dampen unwanted undertones. Now some see this as a bad thing. This can sometimes dampen the drum too much, thus giving it the “Dead Head” reputation. What they mean by a “dead head” is that it’s hard to get good tone out of the drum without cranking it to the point of good resonation.

Overall, this is a good drum head for what it is. Two ply’s with a dampening ring around the edge. Some look to it for an easy solution for annoying ringing, but then there are some that look at it as a great drum head. Wherever you stand, you can’t beat the price of the Remo Pinstripe.
