      OVERVIEW

      Vintage tone, and Bossy gets to live!

      FiberSkyn 3 drumheads feature an exclusive lamination process that combines Remo films and synthetic fibers to re-create the vintage sound, look, and feel of calfskin. The dark, warm, round tone is highly recommended for traditional jazz, R&B, and classic rock drum set applications, as well as for concert snare drums, bass drums, and toms. Also provides an excellent, authentic ethnic drum sound when used on world percussion instruments.

      Excellent
      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.

      See my previous post. These heads still sound good, but after only a few weeks I noticed that the skyn coating was wrinkled. Taking it off the drum, it was obvious that the coating had begun to delaminate from the substrate film. So far no adverse affect to the sounds, but at some point they there will enough air between the substrate and coating it will need to be replaced, and I would guess that will come far sooner than it would for a regular coated head. Very disappointed. I won't buy them again.

          Comments about Remo FiberSkyn 3 Medium Batter Head:

          MF asked me to write a review, so . . . . If you're new to drumming, reading reviews for heads is difficult because there is some subjectivity involved. Besides that, it depends on the sound you are going for, and what the drums themselves are made of. A head that sounds great on say, a mahogany drum, may sound terrible on a birch drum. I got a Fiberskyn for a snare drum and hated it - too much edge ring. But for the toms of the Gretsch Catalina Club for jazz: The Aquarian Modern Vintage sounded good, but "papery." I changed them for Evans coated G1s - much "rounder" sounding, but "muddy." These heads sound articulate like the Aq, but warm and round like the Evans on that particular drum set. If buying heads for drums, my advice: Buy the head for the smallest tom first to try it out.

          Comments about Remo FiberSkyn 3 Medium Batter Head:

          I thought that I was ordering a drum I ordered the wrong thing and tried to return it.....it was such a hassle and would cost me more in shipping if I returned it and reordered the product that I wanted.....so it was a lose lose situation for me. I decided to just keep what I ordered and will toss it later. The service rep was was trying very hard to accommodate me but his supervisor would not....so I doubt that I would ever order from them again.

              I use this head on an Yamaha aluminum snare with a control ring, tight tensioning and a piece or two of moon jel to get a really nice crisp sound. Best snare head I've ever heard. Bet it would sound great on a wood snare too.

              Comments about Remo FiberSkyn 3 Medium Batter Head:

              I recently did a build using an undrilled, unmilled maple shell that I got for cheap. As this was for jazz, I thought I'd give the Fiberskyn a try. The head looks killer. I really wanted to like this head, but I just could never get the drum to sound the way I wanted it to. Hitting anywhere but dead center produced excessive ring. Hitting in the center, the sound is "thin" without much depth or body. The head sound FANTASTIC with brushes, but for anything else from sticks, or rim shots to rim clicks, I prefer the Evans G1. This is personal preference. The people who like the Fiberskyn are not "wrong," but if you really like the sound of a G1 on a snare drum, you probably won't like the Fiberskyn.

                I use these heads for the snare drum because they are good for brush work and naturally don't ring like conventional heads. They sound fantastic. If you have not tried the fiberskyn line on your snare, give it a shot. You be surprise.

                      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.
