      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.

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

        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

                  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 had this type of drum head on my bodhran for a long time now and love it; so I tried this out on my bass drum. I couldn't be more staisfied and it sounds the way I expected it. It really rumbles and if you tune it right emulates the sound of distant thunder in the mountains. I reccomend this for any foot stomper who wants a boom.

                  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.

                  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.
