Replaced a clear powerstroke 3 with this and wasn't all that impressed. It sounds too muffled when muffled and if left unchecked will produce too many unwanted boomy overtones. It's a tough one to tune as I am still looking for the sweet spot where this head will resonate nicely without being too high and still sound like a bass.

      Ugly but sounds great

      Comments about Remo Powerstroke 3 Simulated Calfskin Fiberskyn FA Bass Drumhead:

      As some have mentioned, this head looks nothing like the picture. As a matter of fact, they have the wrong picture up...even the logo is completely different. The head you will get is white with gray spots and the logo is just a big tacky looking Remo Logo. The whole thing just looks like fake skin...really fakey and really ugly. So don't even think about buying it for looks. I couldn't send it back without trying it first. I've been playing for over 40 years, so you know I've tried about every head combo. I put this one on the front of my Bubinga omnitune 22", with an Evans Emad on the batter side...no port holes. I will not be sending it back and even though I may have to spray it black or something....it will stay on there. It's absolutely the deepest resonance I've been able to produce, ever. And the resonance dies off perfectly without any boingy overtones. I'm pretty excited. If you can get past the looks, this is really, really great as a resonance head. Not sure how I'm going to record without the hole, but I ain't messing with it....it sounds too good.

          Comments about Remo Powerstroke 3 Simulated Calfskin Fiberskyn FA Bass Drumhead:

          I have this old 26" marching bass that I want to use out more as a drum set bass. Trouble is, it has the old school calf skin heads which really do not perform well in the constant humidity here. I was already experienced with the Fiber-Skyn line by Remo so I knew it was going to be the ultimate solution. I recieved this yesterday and put it on the drum. The Fiber-Skyn, I believe, is the truest in nature to the real calf skin and even looks good on the drum. I decided to keep the original calf on the reso side. It has a great fundamental attack and deep tone. It has a built in tone ring but I still use a felt strip mainly due the large diameter. They even supplied the little impact patch which is also Fiber-Skin material. A nice touch I thought. For anyone with vintage or antique drums, I highly recommend checking these out.

          Comments about Remo Powerstroke 3 Simulated Calfskin Fiberskyn FA Bass Drumhead:

          I have a Gretsch Catalina Jazz kit with 18" kick.The Gretsch logo head sounded fair, and was ruined (for unmic'ed tone) by putting a 5" hole in it. Mic'ed was fine though.Anyway, just put this Fiberskyn head and it, and the diff is amazing! Full, round, warm tone, unmic'ed. Mic'ed up with a D-112 into my Bose T1 Tonematch using the "kick gate", I'm getting excellent punch without needing the hole.Mic'ed 3" from the head, a bit off-center. Killer...not just punch, but real tone.Love it.As others said, the head in the pic is not right, the real head looks better, more like this conga head:http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/510xAEvPVwL.jpgPerfect for my moderate volume All-Bose L1 trio playing 60's country and rock'n'roll.

          Comments about Remo Powerstroke 3 Simulated Calfskin Fiberskyn FA Bass Drumhead:

          If you don't play real hard (like me) and like to go for good tone, this is the head for you. A great sound for jazz, but also blends in well with my African percussion instruments. Best bass sound I've ever gotten out of my bass drum.

          I really wanted a cool look for the front side of my kick drum. But don't buy this by looking at the picture on this website. This picture is wrong. The real thing looks a thousand times more vintage. The only downside of this head is that its a pain to cut the port hole for the mic because its so thick. But I'm going to keep this head for life.

              Comments about Remo Powerstroke 3 Simulated Calfskin Fiberskyn FA Bass Drumhead:

              I have played with an Evans EQ3 batter head on my 20 inch bass drum for over a decade and was always very happy with the punchy rock sound. I've been playing lots of latin and swing lately and decided to try a Fiberskyn (I have always loved Fiberskyns on snare drums). This Powerstroke/Fiberskyn kick head has a nice sound (not too boingy, as I was afraid it might be). The built-in internal dampening ring handles the unwanted overtones without killing sustain and the head even comes with a (user-installed) Fiberskyn impact pad which, in addition to extending head life, dampens a bit. Overall, I'm very pleased with the look and sound of the P3 Fiberskyn.

                  I play a Ludwig Zepp Centennial Kit and wanted to give it some personality so i loaded my whole kit with Remo Fiberskyn heads. I tuned the heads low and it took about 4 full practice sessions for the heads to stretch and settle into their own. I gotta say that these Fiberskyn heads sound amazing, the tone is fat and low and really lends some amazing look and feel to my kit. But when practicing with the rest of the band, we play Loud heavily distorted alt rock, the toms and kick just couldn't cut through the mix. BUT they sound amazing on our recordings! So its a toss up, these provide killer tone but don't cut through loud guitars and bass live, however look great on stage. So i would say if your kit is going to be mic'd at shows or with the band USE THESE HEADS, or for recording. But unless your playing jazz or something more quiet, stay away.

                    I replaced the heads on a 28 inch Fife & Drum Corp Bass Drum to get a better suited response and sound for my New Orleans Brass Band than I was getting previously from the thinner clear plastic heads. I like these heads so much that I am going to order more in different sizes for my other Bass Drums, they appear to be tough and durable as well as great sounding for our kind of music.

                      I love this head, when you get it tuned to respond to your drum, it sounds great and endures playing with brushes and sticks. These are made for regular moderate to soft playing but will take a beating.

                      I find they need to be tuned a little higher and the reso head should be tuned to the same pitch maybe a little lower.

                      wanted the look of the original calf hide heads found on my 1958 slingerland kit.
                      at a glance, they do resemble my old heads,although they are a little grey instead of yellowish brown that my original heads looked like.
                      They sound great

                      I am restoring a vintage Gretsch drum set. I am restoring the original hardware and rims and wanted to get an "old school" looking calfskin head for the front of the bass drum. The drums are natural blond maple. The head in the ad was almost the same color (yellow) as the drum. I thought this would have just the look I was going for. When I got the drum head it was standard white with veins of grey running through it. Looks okay, but the ad was very misleading. If I knew it was going to be white instead of yellow I would have just ordered a less expensive white head.

                      I put this on my 26" bass drum and nailed my tone in no time. This head offers warm resonance that sounds great in a Big Band.

                      I bought two of these for my 22x18 maple bass drum. These things offer more muffling than the EMAD I had previously. They offer a great warm sound but I made the mistake of putting two when you really only need one because with two the sound is perhaps too dead. If you get one, get a Powerstroke FA for the batter and a regular FA for the front.

                      I got two of these heads for the front and back of my 22x18 bass drum. Well this was probably not a wise decision as these heads have quite the dampening effect. I would recommend putting one on the batter side and the other just being an open regular head. You certainly will not need or want any internal muffling with these heads. My bass is sort of dead sounding now, but that's because I have two of these on there. So if you buy one just get 1 at a time. Very warm sound, no plastic attack. Best with felt beaters too. This is the head for anyone not wanting a plastic sounding bass drum like the industry keeps throwing at everyone. The Powerstroke is better off on larger drums too, 22 and bigger.

                      After reading a somewhat negative review, I admit I was a little skeptical in placing my order. But the 26 inch fiberskyn head I got is a creamy color, with pulpy looking fibers, and the visual effect is quite organic. The logo is newer Remo as well. This is my front bass head, witht the beater side a Powerstroke 3 pinstripe clear on a Ludwig natural (wood) color bass drum. This combo makes the sound nice and fat, with no ring thanks to my 6 inch port. Remo rules!

                      GREAT HEADS! I was looking for a native american drum sound, ya know the low end thump thump!!! I have a 22x16 bass, very cheap rockwood by hohner and the heads sounded like crap. I put on these new heads both front and back and stuck the kick pad on the kick side. I have a DW5000 turbo dbl and from the first kick I was sold! Talk about a low thump thump! Now true I had a cheap set of heads to compare from but I played on a set of Pearl MMX with aquarian head w/damper and to be honest my cheap 22x16 sounded just as good as that Pearl MMX w/aquarian & dampener, no joke! The only thing I noticed is that the skins come in a cool grey mottled look rather than a tan calfskin lookI LOVE EM !
