      OVERVIEW

      This Remo Powerstroke 3 head comes pre-cut to host a KickPort insert.

      The first in a series of KickPort heads, Remo and KickPort have joined forces to proudly introduce the KickPort-Remo PowerStroke 3 Resonant bass drumhead. The KPR3 heads come with the genuine KickPort T-Ring installed, making it the only bass drumhead in the world with a KickPort-ready 5.25" hole.

      The Clear Powerstroke 3 drumhead features a thin underlay at the outer edge of the head to subtly dampen unwanted overtones. This creates a near-perfect balance of response and tone control that has quickly made Powerstroke 3 one of Remo's most preferred drumheads.

        Comments about Remo Powerstroke 3 w/Pre-Installed KickPort and D-Pad Bass Drum Impact Pad:

        this combination really made my kick drum stand out significantly. the marksmanship is second to none. the skin sits perfectly and snug around the drum. compare it to a evans, those skins dont sit nicely like this one. the kickport does make a difference in umf. but one advisory is that once there is a microphone in your kickport make sure it doesnt sit on the funnel, those PA guys dont care about how it sits and chews up your kickport cone, so just double check their work since its a investment. i learned the hard way, this thing is made out of plastic. but in all.. LOVE this product!

          I put this on both of my 24" tama silverstar bass and they sound awesome. I switched to these from the cheap evans, and I am going to stick with these.

            Comments about Remo Powerstroke 3 w/Pre-Installed KickPort and D-Pad Bass Drum Impact Pad:

            I tried a Kickport out a couple years ago at a drum shop. It was on a 16x20 bass. With the Kickport, it sounded like a cannon. Also, you could stand in front of it and feel the thump in your chest. I figured if I put one on my 16x22 it would be even better. Unfortunately that wasn't the case. I have zero "cannon-like" sound. It IS loud nut not what I was anticipating. The best I can take away is that even with no muffling, there isn't a ring anymore. I have it paired with a Removed P3 batter head with Falam Slam Patch.

                Comments about Remo Powerstroke 3 w/Pre-Installed KickPort and D-Pad Bass Drum Impact Pad:

                I bought this because I had the Aquarian Regulator resonant head (with no hole) and it's not good to use resonant heads that have a felt (or foam) muffling like that with the KickPort because it nearly cancels out the KickPort, so it would have cost me more to buy a KickPort and a head separately. My batter head is the clear Super-Kick I. My bass drum is a 22"x16" cheap Yamaha Stage Custom made back in 1997 before Yamaha began improving these drums. So, it's not 100% birch but a mixture of very cheap woods.

                Anyway, I love the KickPort! It works exactly as advertised and the results make my bass drum more fun to play. I really DO get more attack, more punch, more low end, more sensitivity (an improved dynamic range), and more projection! The pedal feel is noticeably improved as well, so the bass drum is also easier to play. It's great! In other words, now my bass drum produces a sound and feel that's more professional than what I had before (like I said, my drums aren't very good, unlike the Stage Customs of today - omg). So again, I love it! It's like I upgraded to a higher quality bass drum!

                It will help to tell you about my tuning. I'm using the tune-bot (I need it and I sincerely recommend it), and I like my bass drum heads to be a little tighter. My tuning is very similar to the way John Bonham tuned his bass drum - more like a tom than anything. Anyway, if you have the tune-bot, I settled on a lug frequency of 65 Hz for the batter, and a lug frequency of about 99-100 Hz for the resonant. Sure, when I tap with my finger in the center of this head, it sounds too high, but if I tap right between the KickPort and the hoop I get a nice deep low end! Anyway, this tuning is fairly tight on both heads.

                Another thing I like is that I no longer need separate internal muffling in order to get a proper bass drum sound. This is a big deal for me because my muffling is just two bath towels rolled up together resting against the batter head. Unfortunately, I've never taken the time to find a good way to keep this homemade muffling secured in place, so one wrong tilt of the bass drum and I'm stuck with the job of removing the front head just to put the muffling back where it was. Again, my preference was heads with no hole. This was a bigger problem than you'd think because I'm not always the one who carries my bass drum for setup or tear-down. It's not easy for me to try to get someone to understand that they can't tilt my bass drum a certain way because I'm just grateful that they're helping me haul my drums. Thanks to the KickPort, I no longer have that problem!

                I also love the way it looks!

                So yeah, I am VERY happy with this.

                    This really brings out the sub bass... my pearl masters 22 now sounds like a cannon.

                    I've been studying and playing drums and percussion for over 39 years and this is by far one of the biggest "Bangs for the Buck" for improving your kick sound!

                    I use it on my smaller kick in a drum booth for worship services with the kick mic right even with the head and just inside the port with NO EXTRA MUFFLING and an Evans EQ3 Batter head without the kevlar pad.

                    Added depth and even enhanced the beater *snap* or *click*. I was very impressed and I recommend it to all my fellow drummers.

                    GET THIS THING NOW!!!

                      I've always wanted a Kickport, but was afraid of cutting a hole in my resonant head(I'm NOT handy!). This was the perfect solution.
