All kinds of R&D experiments were done (I think they even tried kevlar for quints), but only 13 &14" marching snare heads ever made it into production by Remo, as far as I know (I had one for kit by Bear. Still have it actually). In drum corps, we tried out some really weird kevlar/mylar combos for Ludwig. They were terrible.Hrmm.. I've never seen a marching bass head that uses Kevlar / Aramid fiber. AFAIK, Aquarian's only marching bass heads were the Power-Tone and Articulator, both of which were standard mylar.
But no, I've never seen a kevlar bass drum head. That would be like a $400 drum head and it would sound terrible.
