        I started playing drums in 1959 and used calf drum heads up until about 1976 when it became almost impossible to find them (exception being the Chicago Rawhide Company) and had to switch to plastic. There is really no comparision in sound between calfskin and plastic heads.....but I have to say that the fiberskyn heads come the closest in sound and even vegetarians can feel comfortable playing the. The weather has little effect on them and that was the only downside to calf heads ....humidity, heat, AC, cold ... etc ...changed their sound dramatically and you had to tune the crap out of them. If you like a fat jazz funk sound with the musical ring of a calf head ...Remo Fiberskins are for you ...in any and all sizes.

        I bought several of these heads for use on my snare drum. Big mistake. First, they don't last. The first one broke within hours and a second broke within days. I am not a hard player. I have broken 2 or 3 regular mylar heads in 20 years. So I learned my lesson and tried using them on a drum that would basically only be played with brushes. Even bigger mistake, for while the texture is great for brushes, it will de-laminate creating little pockets for the brush wires to get caught in. I destroyed a favorite pair of brushes this way. Avoid these heads.

              I have a 62 Slingerland 9 piece Kit. A Birthday gift received from my father pasted. This last year I pulled it out of storage And reworked every nut and bolt. So I looked around at heads to put on it I want something that sounded RIGHT and looked like it belonged. I looked at a lot of heads. After a couple weeks of looking called Musician Friend Talked the Rep. Price Best ever,
              & 3 days there here, and real help not just, "Ya Man COOOOOL" This is the one & the best place to get them. The sound, best for last. They will give that "Just Right" 60's, a R&b, Jazzy sort that is mello without compare Sticks or Brushes. Attack...I Have a Gretsch 4 piece kit for that. Evens Onyx on it "Oh" I bought them here too.

              Comments about Remo FiberSkyn 3 Medium Batter Head:

              I´ve been using Remo heads 25 years ago and I thin Remo and Aquarian have the best quality products for the drumsets (these brands: Remo and Aquarian increase the natural tone from the shells).

              The first time I heard a patch Medium Batter Head Remo Fiberskyn was in 1991 in a Premier steel snare drum 14"x5" and could thick and dense sound.I bought in 1991 that patch and put it in my vintage Tama MasterCraft snare drum 14"x6.5"; the sound was very off if I removed the Fiberskyn and went to put on my Tama snare drum patch I liked (Ludwig Silver Dot clear one) to enjoy the sound of '80s rock.

              Twenty years later date after I've put that drum head on my Yamaha Loud series of 14"x7" and I managed to revive and fat and vintage thick tone like Aynsley Dunbar in "1987" (Whitesnake). I think the Fiberskyn Medium Batter Head is good for old sounds with low and mid frequencies.

              The only downside/cons I see from the FiberSkyn is that batter thin layer (this is a one ply drum head) that always ends shortly wrinkling and peeling with the stick knockings.

              Comments about Remo FiberSkyn 3 Medium Batter Head:

              These heads sound really good to me on my '68 Ludwig classic toms playing most anything - from my Dixieland Band to my Rock/Country Band to Show Bands in a theatre. They get that fat / flat vintage sound as compared to the clear tone sounds that clear heads give you. The only problem I have had with them is not handling heat well, from being in the car, the garage and festivals - the outer layer tends to bubble. I have to replace them 2 to 3 times more often than I do coated heads. They sound good though with a slight bit more attack than coated heads.

                These heads sound amazing! I use a single ply coated resonator head with them and it sounds great. It definitely has a vintage tone, and surprising similar to Jack White's drum tone from The Dead Weather.

                Review of FiberSkin 3 Medium Batter Heads

                By John Forneris

                from Duluth MN

                Comments about Remo FiberSkyn 3 Medium Batter Head:

                These are a great value and great sounding heads. You can't go wrong, no matter your style.
                Anyone interested in that warmer, slightly lower volume and old school look for their classic drums needs these Fiber Skyn #3 heads. They are very tunable and have a great brush response when used on a snare! I am drummer who trys to compliment and fit in with a musical style, be it Jazz, Big Band, or early Rock & Roll, these heads will work great for you. I have them on 2 sets, one a Slingerland 1966 vintage set and also an newer Yamaha Birch Custom set. They both sound richer and better with these heads. Give them a try if it's the old school, warmer sound and great "calfskin like" look you're trying to re-create.

                I personally love the way these heads' sound and play.If they break,I will buy more!They are still half the price of real skin and for light Jazz playing,I expect, just as durable!
                So Far,I am very pleased! I do play with 7A zildjian/wooden-tip sticks and I have a light touch to my style!
                Love the sound and feel of these heads'!I have put them on my Jr.Pulse drumkit,to make a Jazz/BeBop kit.They sound great!A buddy of mine came over and fell in love with these Skins'!
                So Far,No problemo.I have read some bad reviews' on breakage,but as of now,still playing!
                Great price for something that sounds' like real skin,without the real skin price! if you want real skins,check-out "Earthtone",but you better have a fat wallet! ; )

                These heads give a great warm sound without the need for extensive muffling. Good rebound everywhere on the head.
