The Remo 5-Piece Rock ProPack includes 12″, 13″, 16″ Pinstripe tom heads, 22″ Powerstroke bass head, and a 14″ Coated Ambassador snare head.
Remo 5-Piece Rock ProPack also Includes an FALAM patch.

Remo Pinstripe heads are the classic, trusted drum head for rock style drumming. I’ve used these heads when playing in rock bands and they sound great.

They give a great, punchy low-end sound with short sustain and hold up very well to hard playing. A definite winner of a drum head in my book.

Remo Clear Pinstripe Drum Heads

Remo's popular Pinstripe heads are made from 2 plies of Remo clear film and bonded at the collar to dampen both high overtones and overall resonance. The result is a very focused, low-pitched sound with moderate attack and response characteristics that are ideal for creating a deeper, fatter, controlled drum sound in a variety of studio and live drumming situations.

I used to use this head exclusively when I played hard rock. This is a quality Remo head with legacy. It’s been around for a long time, and there’s a reason for it. It gives a great closed tone that allows the player to pound on it and get great powerful sound.

Remo Emperor Coated Drum Head

The Emperor heads are the darkest sounding and most durable of classic Weather King heads. They are made with two free floating plys of 7 mil film, which give their consistent open tone. The Coated White style is the darkest sounding of the three types.

A great sounding head that is durable and bears the Remo name. Remo Emperor Coated Drum heads have been around for a while and have built a legacy. They are good for different styles of drumming including Jazz, fusion, rock and various other types of playing.

The coated head is durable and is suitable for brush work where needed. Remo Emperor drum heads are a great buy and will hold up.

Remo Ambassador Drumhead ProPack

The kit includes one each: of a 12, 13, 14, and 16-inch heads. Remo Ambassadors are a single, medium-ply, extremely versatile head. Ambassadors are some of the most played heads ever.

Great drum heads that have good resonation. The tones seem to go on forever on these single ply heads. The coating is nice for brushwork. These are not for super hard playing like a two-ply head would hold up to. If you play a little softer especially jazz or fusion, these drum heads are the way to go. I’ve used them for years and alternate with the clear types.

Remo heads have always seated on the shell very nicely for me. In my honest opinion, you really can’t go wrong with Remo. You can get these drum heads in a Fusion Coated Pakas well.


Remo has been around for a long time in the drum head arena. Remo makes drum heads that are top quality and the demanding performers require. Some of the Remo drum head styles are the Diplomat, Ambassador, and Pinstripe series. Each brand of head has its purpose for different drumming styles.

The pinstripe drum head, for example, is great where louder, stronger playing is required, where on the other hand, the Ambassador drum head is better for softer playing like Jazz, fusion, etc. Pick the right Remo drum head for your playing style and get the reviews on Remo drum heads here.
