"As a young new drummer at the age of 6, I was given some Remo Coated Pinstripes by a seasoned drummer my father worked with. One for both my rack tom and floor tom. Previously I just thought my drums sounded cheap because they were from a thrift store, and that better sound would come with better drums. I was proven so wrong. With the help of my drum teacher I put the Coated Pinstripes on my Tom’s and they came to life. Still to this day Coated pinstripes are my favorite Remo head. Throw a CSX on the snare and you’ll have a perfect sounding kit no matter what you play!" -Luke Johnson
