MH2 Series


MH2 Series

The world’s most popular dual-ply mesh head – now also available for acoustic drums

Roland’s dual-ply mesh heads for V-Drums revolutionized the playability of electronic drums thanks to their adjustable tension, durability and natural playing feel. And now we’re taking the concept a step further with the PowerPly series; nine mesh heads produced by REMO Inc. ranging from 8” to 22” that let you retrofit your acoustic drums for quiet practice. When used with Roland’s RT-30 Acoustic Drum Triggers, PowerPly mesh heads can trigger a V-Drums module, enabling you to practice and experiment with various sounds while maintaining the looks and feel of your acoustic drum kit.

The power of PowerPly mesh heads

Single-ply mesh heads from other brands may need re-tightening and adjustment after a few days of playing. Roland’s PowerPly mesh heads don’t require constant retuning (*1), so you can practice for longer with consistent rebound. If you are using PowerPly mesh heads with RT-30 Acoustic Drum Triggers, head tension is an important factor in accurate sensing and tracking of your drumming. The trigger response of PowerPly heads is more accurate, thanks to the dual-ply design and consistent tension. Roland’s bass drum dual-ply mesh heads also last twice as long as single-ply mesh heads made by other brands (*2), so you can play hard without having to frequently replace the heads.

Durability Test by Roland
  • - Snare Drum: After a few days of drumming, the tension rods of single-ply mesh heads needed tightening by a full turn, while Roland’s dual-ply mesh heads retained most of their original tension.
  • - Bass Drum: Using a kick pedal to hit the mesh heads until they were broken, Roland’s dual-ply mesh heads lasted twice as long as single-ply mesh heads by other brands.
