Drum Heads

Find the drum head to fit your djembe, congas, bongos, drum set or any other percussion instrument here. This replacement head category offers heads by Remo, Latin Percussion, Toca Percussion, Meinl, Tycoon and X8 Drums.

Traditional world drum heads typically require goatskin or cowskin and when choosing the skin, you'll always want to get it sized to be 3-4" larger than the diameter of your drum so that you have room to work with. Cowskin has a warmer, deeper tone and is standard for djun djuns although many players are starting to experiment with cowskin on their djembe drums. When choosing goat skin, be sure to check the thickness of the skin. We offer a thinner skin for those that want a higher pitched response and a thicker skin for deeper tone.

Replacement heads for bongos, congas and drum sets are usually very specific. You'll want to be sure that you know the brand and model of your drum or the model of the heads as most heads are made to fit just one particular model drum. Heads for your drum kit are a little more flexible, requiring only that you get the correct size in most cases leaving room to mix and match styles.
