Tone, construction, value...it's all there.
I first got the coated weathering ambassadors heads for my snare and toms. (clear weathering ambassadors on resonant side) Awesome! I recorded a record the following week and it was the best tones I have ever accomplished yet.

After breaking a bass head, I got this bass drum head. Punchy, booming, clear tones followed. It brought my playing alive more than ever. I read several reviews on several products and many said that remo's weatherking series were the best. After using several types over the years, I couldn't agree more.
This is top quality. You cannot go wrong.
I would buy it again next time.

killer bass

By cooldrummer95

from Florence, Alabama

Comments about Remo Powerstroke 3 Clear Bass Drum Head with Impact Patch:

before i bought this head at the memphis drum shop, i was using the stock head but with a ring of weatherstripping around the edge (like a marching bass). i thought that the sound of my bass drum wouldn't really get any better but when i put this head on...OMG! this head makes my bass sound like heaven in a 22x16 cylinder! i paired it with an aquarian regulator reso head and with no extra muffling. my guitarist even noticed how much better it sounded. it has this HUGE and extremely low but not too low "BLAM!"

Best sound on my kits

By Vinman-C2sD2

from Newtown, PA

See all my reviews

Comments about Remo Powerstroke 3 Clear Bass Drum Head with Impact Patch:

I have three drum kits and have tried the Aquarian and Evans heads...all of them, on my kick drums. I own Sonor Delites, Mapex Maples and Pearl Masters. Both in the studio and mic'd for live gigs using an AKG D112 and Audix D6 all the kick drums sound better using the Remo Power Stoke III's. I use an Aquarian regulator on the resonant side and thats all I need. They are louder, deeper and have a faster attack than all the others. The PSIII's are durable and cheap. Try this combo and see what you think...good luck fellow drum nuts.

It just doesn't get any better than this

By artemus-gG54D

from Tri Cities TN

Comments about Remo Powerstroke 3 Clear Bass Drum Head with Impact Patch:

I've played drums for 35-40 yrs and this is by far the best bass drum batter head I've used or heard. I use it on a 22" Vistalite. It has a very deep sound with no no annoying overhanging ring. Damping is unnecessary. The bass sounds fabulous with this as a batter and a Evans single ply resonate head. I don't use the dot but I can't remember what effect it had on the sound. YMMV. Just buy it, especially if you have a lively set like the Ludwig Vistalites

Comments about Remo Powerstroke 3 Clear Bass Drum Head with Impact Patch:

Admittedly, I haven't tried every bass batter head on the market, so I can't say for sure this is the best head out there. But, I only use Remo heads, and out of the 4 or 5 different models that I have tried, I landed on this one and stopped trying any others. It makes the bass sound amazing and not too much overtone. I've used on 3 different bass drums and have been happy with the sound on each. I'm not sure exactly what the difference is between this head and the stock heads that are put on DW Collector's series drums, but they sound remarkably similar, so I haven't changed it yet. However, I have bought one just to have handy in case I need it. Give it a shot, I'd be shocked if you were disappointed.

Comments about Remo Powerstroke 3 Clear Bass Drum Head with Impact Patch:

This basshead is better quality than the previous head I was replacing, however, I was hoping with the built in ring, it would do more to muffle the overtones. The impact patch is a great idea (especially when my husband thinks he needs to use the plastic side of the bass drum beaters), however I have a double-bass pedal, so I ended up purchasing one that accomodates two beaters. Overall, I think it'll hold up nicely as expected from a Remo head, not dissapointed in my purchase.

Awesome Sounds!! Great kick!!

By DW_drummer28

from Phoenix, AZ

Comments about Remo Powerstroke 3 Clear Bass Drum Head with Impact Patch:

I had a Remo Pinstripe before this and it was decent. It felt decent to play with my DW 5000 Accelerator pedals but when I bought my 2nd bass drum I decided to try something else so I gave the Powerstroke 3's a shot and wow!! I wish I went w/this head right away and never even bother with the Pinstripe before this. My bass drums now sound so much deeper. I have 22" bass drums and they sound bigger adn deeper with these heads. Great Sound!!

Powerstroke 3 Rocks!

By Drums4Life-k2S2-

from Boise, ID

Comments about Remo Powerstroke 3 Clear Bass Drum Head with Impact Patch:

I replaced the factory 22" head with one of these and love the sound. I also use an ebony Powerstroke 3 with 5" port hole for the resonator head and the bass is lower and punchy with no annoying overtones. I use a small amount of pillow stuffing inside to further dampen the sound but it sounds good even with no stuffing. If you are looking for a low, punch bass note, then buy it. It was worth every penny!

Nothing Better

Comments about Remo Powerstroke 3 Clear Bass Drum Head with Impact Patch:

The head is very easy to tune right out of the box, and the best part about it, is the amount of punch you didn't know you had. It resonates beautifully on my 24'' Gretsch, and there is no way there is anything better

Best Head EVER!!!!!!!!!!

By Moodachris

from Van, WA

See all my reviews

Comments about Remo Powerstroke 3 Clear Bass Drum Head with Impact Patch:

I'm 14 years old and my cousins on guitars and me on drums play and write songs together, and after getting this head for my 22" bass drum, it completely changed the sound of it. My Aquarian Super Kick II head just didn't produce that loud 'thump' that I was looking for, but now I get compliments all the time about it. All my friends who came to my last High School Talent Show said that it sounded great (mainly the percussion guys in the band). This is the best Bass Drum head you can EVER buy. Don't settle for anything but this Bass head.P.S. All of you other guys writing reviews either have to slow your typing down, or study your grammar a bit more.

    I replaced an old Evans head with this Powerstroke and what a difference. I play a 30 year old set of Pearl maple shells and this head makes the 24X16 bass drum sing. It projects plenty of power and volume. I tried the impact patch,but it sounded awful. After some serious tweaking,and an old blanket thrown in to kill the ring,this thing sounds like a cannon now. Kick Kick Boom!

      Comments about Remo Powerstroke 3 Clear Bass Drum Head with Impact Patch:

      I have always used 2 ply bass batter heads in the past, but decided to give this powerstroke a try because of great reviews. I installed the head, ran the lugs down finger tight, then went another 1 3/4 turn with the ratchet. This is the loudest, fattest, wettest head I have ever played! I am blown away by the attack and volume versus the two ply heads. It took me a few days to get used to playing it because of the increased volume of the drum. Installed on Premier Artist Birch 22x20. Definitely recommend for live sound!!

            This 1-ply head immediately got compliments from multiple sound guys! I tune mine to an "A" and put a thin pillow in the drum touching both heads. Tre Ccol uses this head, that's why I tried it and I'm on my 2nd one now. I'm a medium hitter, but I still use the included patch for a little breakage insurance! Buy this head!
