Kentville Drums Kangaroo Heavy Hide Drum Head
Handmade in Sydney, Australia, Kentville Drums offer high quality drum heads which are crafted using ethically sourced materials. Each hide is carefully selected and crafted to the desired thickness and then hand lapped to solid aluminium flesh hoops. The traditional method used by Kentville Drums is one that has been used over the centuries by many drum makers and a process Kentville is proud to continue today.
This particular drum head is the Kentville Drums 14" Kangaroo Hide Drum Head (Heavy) and is a welcome addition to Drum Shop amongst the very dense drum head market. Kangaroo hide drum heads offer drummers a completely different sound which is certainly outside of the norm! In terms of sound, the kangaroo hide drum heads will really shock and amaze you, mostly because the tones are so effective! These heads have the ability to produce a full bodied warmth which is rich in tone and is perfect for a range of musical genres and settings. When they say that Kentville Drums offer "the sound of Australia" they aren't wrong, the responsive, melodic feel these heads deliver is super easy to tune and free of overtones.
All hides Kentville Drums use are ethically sourced by-products of a culling program overseen by the NSW Office of Environment and Heritage. This program assists and ensures that the kangaroo population in eastern Australia remains healthy and at a sustainable number. The kangaroo is one of Australia’s national animals, and the highest level of consideration and care is taken to ensure that the hides are procured in an ethical and sustainable manner that serves to benefit the species.
