What is a ‘Classic Fit’ Drum Head?

Remo Classic Fit drum heads are designed for vintage drum owners (especially Gretsch) who have drums which are slightly oversized or not perfectly round. Instead of a normal thickness flesh-hoop, the Classic Fit drum heads have a slightly narrower flesh-hoop allowing for a comfortable fit on older shells. Modern drums are manufactured to near-perfect diameters and shape whereas back in the day, shells were made with looser quality control. But that’s the beauty of owning a vintage drum set…

Fiberskyn 3 drum heads combine classic Remo drum skin technology with synthetic fibers to recreate the vintage sound, look and feel of Calfskin. Anyone who owns a vintage drum set will especially appreciate Fiberskyn’s winning combination of recreating a golden era sound without the unpredictable atmospheric behavior associated with natural Calfskin. These are truly reliable repro vintage heads for today’s drummer.
