When you own a vintage drum, changes are the size of your drums do not exactly match the modern day drumheads you buy in stores. Now, Remo drumheads' new line of Classic Fit drumheads will match your oversized drums made prior to the mid 60's. With the new Classic Fit batter drumheads Remo has fixed the troubles with matching drumheads by giving them a slightly narrower flesh hoop and step design, while the outside diameter still is the same as we are used to. Perfect about that is that it still fits the counter hoop.
Is it really that easy? Yes it is! Watch Bob Yerby, Vice President Sales & Marketing at Remo tell you all about it in the video below, as well as in the promo video Remo made.
Remo wouldn't be living up to its name if they didn't make the Classic Fit available for pretty much all drum sizes there are. Below is the complete list of Classic Fit drumheads, and their retail prices.
