Description

Kentville Kangaroo Snare Head Heavy Gauge

These Kentville Kangaroo Heads bring out the absolute best in Vintage drums.

Our kangaroo hide heads provide unrivalled warmth and a clear fundamental tone synonymous with that of the calf heads of the early 20th century. With their fine sensitivity and articulation meeting the requirements of even the most perceptive player, Kentville heads bring a quality of sound to a drum that plastic heads often fail to deliver. Embodying the history of the instrument in the most traditional way, today the sound of our heads resonates through the great concert halls of Europe, the jazz clubs of New York and the RSLs of Sydney. It’s the real tone of real rawhide that’s been at the heart of drumming for eight thousand years; a sound from the past for the music of today. It’s the pure essence of Australia!

 

Traditionally Handmade
Each head is entirely handmade using a series of tasks and tools as old as western drums themselves. Today we lap our 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, our 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. Each head is then packaged in a sealed sleeve before being sent on its way from our workshop to its destination.

Any items held at our warehouse and ordered before 12pm will be dispatched same-day. For any special order items, we will be in touch directly with tracking information. Delivery is free for most of the U.K. on all orders over £100 and others start from just £2.99.

We offer 'Express Shipping' on all items meaning that, for most parts of the U.K., your order will be with you next working day.
