High-quality REMO DrumHead 14'' Emperor Coated
The Remo Emperor Coated 14'' DrumHead is a versatile 14'' drumhead from Remo, featuring a high-quality coated design, offering warm, open tones and increased durability and projection.
The drumhead features 2 plies of 7-mil coated film, with a 3-mil inlay ring for tom and snare heads. Providing a perfect balance of response and tonal control.
After World War II, the founder of Remo Inc., Remo D. Belli, was experimenting with PET film as a new material choice for drumheads. At the time, the idea was dismissed by many drummers because they preferred the sound of calfskin heads which dominated the market at that point. There were, however, some issues with the calfskin heads, such as their need for regular tuning, so Remo Belli went about solving these problems and creating a convenient solution for drummers.
Using Mylar, a synthetic polyester film for drumheads, Belli was able to copy the look of a calfskin head, with a white and opaque look. Later developments of these drum heads included clear heads, two-ply heads, and simulated natural heads (Fiberskyn) which are still very popular amongst many modern drummers.
Remo D. Belli died in April 2016, however, the company continue to lead the way in the drumhead manufacturing industry, supplying heads to a range of drum manufacturers including Pearl, Yamaha, Mapex, DW Drums, and many more.
