Heads

Kalango believes in the authentic sound of Brazil. The drumheads have a strong influence in sound. If you want to get the most authentic sound on your drum, we recommend heads from Brazilian manufacturers. Check out the common Brazilian brands and details about the different types of heads. All sizes are in inches. If you are not sure about the size of your instrument, divide the inner diameter of the tension hoop in cm by 2,54 to receive the right site in inches.

Purchasing replacement heads:
If you are buying a replacement head for your instrument, we advise that you get a head from the same brand as your instrument as they should fit without any trouble. If you buy a head from a different brand, you might find that the fit slightly differs or even doesn't go on the shell well or at all. Please understand that we cannot offer warranty in this case.
