tommyDavidsonTommy Davidson – Pulled Apart By Horses

I’ve been working with Code for a while now and I’m really into what the guys are doing. I find their heads give a full, open and resonant sound whilst maintaining a focussed, consistent attack with just the right amount of sustain. They tune really nicely and don’t require much, if any dampening. I play pretty hard and I’ve found these heads are extremely durable and last really well. Thanks for the support Code and thanks for offering a great alternative to the industry fat cats!

Big brand names or a dedicated British drumhead manufacturer? I’ve made my choice! Code drumheads are well-priced, durable and they sound great and consistent for live and studio applications…. And I’m picky about drumheads.

We perform under any weather condition, blazing sun, pouring rain, snow or freezing temperatures…. and always surrounded with pyrotechnics !

Tim Wilson – IO Earth and Under A Banner

I’ve been with Code since the beginning and the two constants have been the company’s drive to make products that respond to what drummers need and the building of a community (of lovely people) who care about what they play.

Math Priest – Dodgy/The Icicle Works

I thought, hang on if he’s giving me free drum skins then they’re gonna be rubbish. But they actually turned out to be as good as the big, well known brands that I was using before. Also what’s ace is as they are a new UK company, they’re getting better and developing all the time.

I’m so impressed with Code! From the very first day I put these heads on my drums I knew they were for me! Great attack, tone and durability, both live and in the studio!

The proof is in the pudding. Code Drumheads are proof that you don’t need to use a big brand name to sound amazing!

robAllenRob Allen – Augustines and Session

What can I say about Code Heads. They are extremely durable, and I should know. I’ve played a hell of a lot of shows and they’ve outlasted and out performed any other brand I’ve used. They stay in tune superbly. I once travelled from London to Madrid by bus, literally after arriving, I walked on to the stage with my drums and the heads didn’t even need to be tuned!! I couldn’t believe it. The most important thing, is they sound fantastic. The different ranges Code offer suit any situation, studio or live and offer the versatility any drummer would need. Try them- You’ll be blown away!

Brian Moroney –Airways

The first time I tried Code Heads, I knew I had to make the switch. I love the way they feel and sound.

Sylvain Callot

I chose CODE for its genuine and original sound and because it’s efficient and easy to tune. I selected the GENERATOR range for the snare’s skin head and GENETIC for the resonant skin. The sound is profound, precise, classical and subtile. The outcome is good for all drumsticks. I also chose the GENERATOR range for the toms and the DNA CLEAR for its resonant skin. Finally, I take the BLAST coated skin for my bass drum and the white ENIGMA serie for a nice finishing touch on stage and a good sounding bass drum.

Jay Patterson – I,Assassin

I am so excited to be joining the Code Drum Head family, after a long search I finally have the drum sound I was after!”

I chose Code after hearing so many good things so I made the switch. From the moment I put the heads on I was amazed. I hardly had to tune them and they were ready for the tour and they are simply hands down the best heads I’ve ever played! I am bursting with pride to be part of #teamcode
