Marching Snare Head Feature: Remo Suede Max

We get many calls this time of year regarding snare head choices. There are many tried and true products out there, but there is one newer option that is quickly becoming the choice of marching groups everywhere: the Remo Suede Max batter head.

If you love the sound of their now-famous Black Max, but desire a softer feel, then the Suede Max is probably the head you’re looking for. Along with the softer feel, you still get the durability that you’ve come to expect with the Black Max. This drum head is available in 13” and 14”.

Give us a call if you’re ready to try these out this marching band season. We have several in stock with more on the way! For more information on this drum head, visit this link: https://remo.com/products/product/suede-max/
