MetallicHeads - Sparkle & Chrome Bass Drum Heads
MetallicHeads are made with light reflective materials. Our process bonds the metallic finish to the front surface creating a 1.5 ply drumhead. The color samples on our website do not do the drumheads justice. You must see to believe! Text, logos, and graphics can be added for an additional cost. Contact us for a quote.
- All finishes reflect light
- Finishes are heat pressed for durability
- Acoustically responsive head with a warm controlled sound
Add a whole other dimension of awesomeness to your bass drum! We offer 9 mirror-like finishes including Diamond Plate Silver. Finishes are much brighter and more colorful in person.
Heads are made with thousands of round sequin sparkle chips and available in 7 exciting colors. When the lights shine the head glimmers back with a full spectrum of colors. These heads create visual energy!
These Color Samples are close to the actual color you will receive. If you wish to see a physical color sample, please contact us with the colors you would like to see and we will be glad to postal mail them to you. There is a small fee to ship outside the U.S.
MetallicHeads are made exclusively with Aquarian drumheads. The machine templets we use to make the heads were designed to work with this drumhead brand. MetallicHeads are available in 16" to 24" sizes, including tom-tom reso heads for converted floor toms and bass drums. Drumheads 26" or larger cannot be manufactured due to material limitations.
Add Your Artwork
We cannot print directly to the MetallicHead surface but Contour Cut graphics can be adhered for an additional cost. You can add your artwork, text, manufacturer logos. All Contour Cut artwork needs to be reviewed by our team of designers before we can provide you with a detailed quote. Making drumheads this way is a 2 step process and is an additional cost. After payment is made we will email you proofs for your approval. Designs are saved to our server so you can reorder at any time.

Port Hole Options
Having a drum port gives the drum better projection and more attack. You can easily add or remove dampening and quickly change your drum sound by having a ported bass drum head. We suggest installing a mic hole port if you play live or where a sound tech would need to mic your drum for recording. The most requested bass drum hole size is 4 inches because it works best with printed graphics. Try and keep bass drum holes 1.5 to 3 inches away from the hoop edge when creating your design.
Simple Port Hole - Hole with no protection
Any size port hole can be installed. We suggest 4", 5" or 6" sizes. Holes smaller than 3.5" should only be used as an air release port. Try and keep holes 1.5 to 3 inches away from the hoop edge. Simple Port Hole specs and features.
Port Hole Ring - Stylish hole protection ring
Port Hole Rings add a finished look to your drumhead. The two-part system is made of hard plastic which snaps together and protects the hole from both sides. Available in a variety of sizes and colors. Port Hole Ring specs and features.
Hole Reinforcer - Hole with backer ring
Hole Reinforcers are a thin plastic ring which installs on the back side of your drumhead. They are light weight, durable and protects the hole from ripping. Available in a variety of sizes. Hole Reinforcer specs and features.
KickPort - Drum acoustic maximizer
Add KickPorts for more low-end sound & punch. It increases attack & definition with improved feel and more power. Made of a hard plastic which protects the hole from damage and ripping. Available in a variety of colors. KickPort specs and features
Hole Placement Options
You get to choose where the bass drum port hole is placed in your drumhead. Check out these Single Hole Options and Multiple Hole Options. The Standard Placement is 4 o’clock. Try and keep holes 1.5 to 3 inches away from the hoop edge.
