When I think of BFSD first thing that comes to my mind is these kinds of products. They made a name in the music business by making on-top drum heads. It’s basically the classic drum head but without an aluminum ring on the edge so you can’t mount it on a snare drum.
On top drum heads are their first product so, I guess they are still the most attractive one. They make all sorts of drum heads that will completely change your snare drum sound. Check out different types:
- Classic type
- Drum heads with an additional layer in the middle
- Drum heads without the middle part
- Drum heads with tambourines
With some, you will be able to get produced sound with a low end like you tune your snare drum very low, with others you can get a trashy sound that will guide you through experimenting with grooves and drum parts.
I think changing your snare drum sound without changing anything on your snare drum is always an interesting idea. I like to turn over my snare drum and scratch the snare to get the DJ scratch sound.
They divided the lineup into two variations:
Regular drum heads have a full body. In addition they can have tambourines attached. Donuts models have an additional layer in the middle or don’t have a middle at all.
Regular drum heads change the pitch, character and dampen the snare drum. Donuts with additional layer add more attack in comparison to regular models or keep the character of existing snare while just adding another taste.
