A few notes on the drumhead comparison chart above:
  • In general, the drumhead comparison chart goes from thinnest and brightest, to thickest and warmest heads.
  • Open (non-dampened) drumheads are usually before drumheads with built-in dampening.
  • Drumheads from different brands can sound slightly different, even when they have the exact same specs, due to different manufacturing processes, materials, and design. In the bigger picture though, these differences are usually small compared to how ply/thickness/dampening/etc alters the sound. Some drumheads don’t match up exactly, but if they’re listed side-by-side on the comparison chart, you can be confident that they are very closely related.
  • Still confused? Need some help deciding which drumhead to choose?

Great care has been taken to ensure all of the drumhead comparisons in the chart are as accurate as possible. Notice something in the comparison chart that doesn’t add up? Please get in touch – it will be fixed ASAP!
