Celebrating 50 Years of Remo
A Drummerï¿½s Drumhead Company
First and foremost, letï¿½s get something straight. Remoï¿½ is a drummerï¿½s drumhead company. After all, for over 50 years, Remo has constantly and consistently broken new ground when it comes to industry firsts. While we were doing what we do best, the competition continued to chase, follow and mimic our technological prowess. Better yet, by the time they even came close to catching up, we were already onto the next big idea. Ultimately, when it comes to our skills as a drumhead manufacturer, no one can touch the technical and musical advantages that Remo drumheads always provide.
In fact, our competitorsï¿½ attempts to ride our coattails also pushed us to work smarter, as well as harder. Innovation quickly became part of our DNA.
An Unusually Durable, Inexpensive, Weather Resistant Material
The Remo story began after WWII when experiments were being made with Mylarï¿½* a polyester film made by DuPontï¿½. (Mylarï¿½ was used during the war as a heat resistant film for nighttime reconnaissance flights.) This unusually durable, inexpensive, weather resistant material that provided previously unattainable pitch, tone and consistency intrigued Remo D. Belli, an already successful drummer. And, because of Mylarï¿½, Remo began his legacy with the Weatherkingï¿½ drumheads, the very first Remo first.
Innovation and Technical Sophistication
Throughout the 60ï¿½s, 70ï¿½s and 80ï¿½s, Remo continued to innovate and became the worldï¿½s drumhead specialist in virtually every category. From percussionists and orchestral timpanists to drum corps, jazz, blues and rock. Technical sophistication never before imagined in drum heads reached new heights, thanks to new laminations and coatings found in other Remo firsts such as Controlled Soundï¿½, Pinstripeï¿½, Smooth Whiteï¿½, Powerstrokeï¿½, Fiberskynï¿½, Suedeï¿½, Renaissanceï¿½ and Nuskynï¿½. Understanding how drumheads should be designed and how they should ultimately sound soon became our foundation for other applications, such as childrenï¿½s drumsï¿½another industry first. This brings us to Advanced Acousticonï¿½, our latest technological feat. A unique, wood-based shell material that reflects woodï¿½s best qualities, but is more consistent and easier to work with. The end result? Richer, more durable, better sounding drums. With the advent of Advanced Acousticon, Remo is now leading the fastest growing category in the businessï¿½world percussion.
Because of our advances in drumheads, percussion and all things rhythmic, the world isnï¿½t only listening, but also playing like thereï¿½s no tomorrow. And if we can accomplish all this and more in a matter of 50 years, imagine what the next few decades are going to be like.
