The Remo story began after WWII when experiments were being made with Mylar, a polyester film made by DuPont. Mylar was used during World War 2 as a heat resistant film for night reconnaissance flights and this unusually durable, inexpensive, weather resistant material that provided previously unattainable pitch, tone and consistency intrigued Remo D. Belli. It is because of this material that Remo was able to begin his legacy with the Weatherking drumheads.
Remo continued to innovate throughout the 60's, 70's and 80's and through hard graft, became the worlds drum head specialist in almost every catagory. Everyone from percussionists and orchestral timpanists to drum corps, jazz, blues and rock came to Remo and his company for their expertise. Technical sophistication never before imagined in drum heads also reached new heights thanks to new laminations and coatings found in other Remo firsts such as Controlled Sound™, Pinstripe™, Smooth White™, Powerstroke™, Fiberskyn®, Suede™, Renaissance® and Nuskyn™. Because of Remo's innovations, the world of percussion has completely changed and advanced in leaps and bounds. If they can achieve this in a mere 50 years, just imagine what the next 50 will bring.
