          Comments about Remo Silentstroke Drumhead:

          Works on a drum, activates the snares. I'd be inclined to use this only a inexpensive "practice" kit. It will sound no different on a 70s MIJ than it would on a DW. My only (unsubstantiated) concern (more of a question) is, given that this is micro screen, is it abrading the bearing edges as tightened? If I find out one way or the other, I'll repost.

            Comments about Remo Silentstroke Drumhead:

            For LV practice or playing on an acoustic kit there are really only two options: The Remo Silentstroke and the Aquarian Superpads. These heads are 1/4 the outlay, and have the benefit of being tensionable. While they do not feel exactly like a "real" drum head, you can have relative tension between the heads. These heads, however, are a semi-permanent modification. Changing them out for other heads is the same as changing any heads. The Aq. SP overlay your heads, and so can be put on and taken off in a snap, but they all have the same feel. Owing to c0st and the ability to tension, the Remos are "better," but are best used with a dedicated practice kit. The good news is, the kit itself doesn't matter, and it would be a share to put these on, say, a Gretsch Broadkaster, or a Pearl Session Studio Classic. Relative pitch is produced by the resonant head by vibration traveling through the shell. For snare drums, I suspect this would work better for wood than for metal (I haven't tried it on metal, but it works amazingly well on the cheap wooden snare I put the head on). If you've got a kit you can dedicate to practice, these heads are the way to go. If you've got one kit and need to go back and forth between regular acoustic sound and quiet practice, the Aquarians are the way to go.

              I replaced the factory heads on my 2box kit with these. The difference is night and day. I should have done it from day one. They feel and trigger SOOOOOOO much better. And they are almost silent. Highly recommended!

                These work great and do what they say they do for toms, but they do not work as a snare head. Very little action from the snare wires when playing. Had to sandwich a sock in between the bottom head and wires to get rid of awful sound. After that it sounds like a high pitched tom, which is fine for practice for me.

                  Bought this one as a test before converting entire set. Does what it says. It is simply the type of head you would find on an electric set but built for and used on an acoustic.

                  Just bought 3 more...

                      What a difference these made on my Alesis Dm-10 Studio E-kit. You have to cut slit in white foam for the wire then put white foam on top of the black foam then put the silent stroke head on top for it to work good. I bought just 1 for the snare to try out then within a week ordered the rest. Old heads were loud and felt like you were hitting cement. These heads feel like real drum heads and are nice and quiet. Even the bass drum now feels like I'm playing a real kick drum instead of slamming a beater into a wall. I love my e-kit now with theses heads on it.

                      If you want to make your drums quiet and retain a decent feel these do the job. They are quiet. Very quiet. Maybe too quiet.
                      They're great if you want to practice "the drums", but if you want to practice with your cymbals too, you may find it trying.
                      The extreme quietness of the heads juxtoposed with full volume cymbals makes playing/practicing an odd experience. You only really hear the cymbals which kind of makes things sound and feel..... well...."wonkie".
                      They'd probably work great with triggers though.
                      My solution: to mic up the mesh heads (from the bottom), crank up the gain, add some reverb. Now with headphones I can practice with "reasonable" sound/volume.
                      Final Note: be forewarned about the kick head. You'll put your beater through it quickly if you don't reinforce the head.

                        When i first ordered these i was really nervous about getting them since I didn't know how it was going to feel since if the head didn't feel close to my real heads it was going to be useless.

                        The best thing about these heads is that you can actually tune them almost to how you tune your drums to get that feeling almost.

                        So you can have a floppy floor tom and a high tuned snare if you are into that kind of stuff.

                        but I highly recommend this for someone who can't play due to your drums are too loud.
