The BOMB!

By Thopter

from Cody, Wyoming

Comments about Remo Powerstroke 3 Clear Batter:

I've played drums for 35 years and now I have what I think is the best sounding bass drum ever thanks to switching to the Remo PS3. I was so stoked playing my drums today that I think I was hyperventilating. I replaced my Aquarian Superkick II with this Remo head and the change was instant and dramatic. FAR, FAR better! And not only is the sound just superb, the feedback to my bass drum pedal beaters is totally different and lets me work the double pedal much faster and with better control than before. It's like having a brand new pedal upgrade as well. The sound, dynamics, and feel are incredible. My setup: Pacific CX 22" bass drum, Remo PS3 batter, Aquarian regulator resonant head, stock black Pacific dampening pillow, Pacific 600 double pedal with stock beaters ( medium size beaters).Hands down the best sounding bass drum I've ever played. BUY THIS HEAD!

Great for Floor Toms

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about Remo Powerstroke 3 Clear Batter:

These heads work great for 14, 16, and 18 inch drums. But for smaller drums like 10, 12, and 13 inch drums. They can dent after hard hits. But besides that, these heads are pretty good.

You have to get it!!!!

Comments about Remo Powerstroke 3 Clear Batter:

Man you have to get these. These are the best sounding heads I have ever HAD!! Once you get them tuned, they sound better than a AC-DC concert!!! If i were you I would try to get some better drumsticks, because these heads are too good for yours!! I would get some Millinum 2 drumsticks, man those sound good on them heads. And when you buy these heads, just remember, Musician's Friend will always be there, trust me I've been with them for over 27 YEARS!!!!!

    Outstanding Tone

    By Holla at allah-4jL_t

    from Elk River, MN

    Comments about Remo Powerstroke 3 Clear Batter:

    These heads are outstanding for tone, warmth and projection. Even though they are single-ply, they last a while. The only place they came up short for me was when using brushes or hotrods. But in those cases a coated head might serve better anyway.

                Comments about Remo Powerstroke 3 Clear Batter:

                I've drifted towards the more natural sound of one-ply heads in recent times, especially when there is some dampening already applied to the head, so I gave these a try. I'm very glad I did, as I can't remember the last time I had such an easy time tuning toms! They sound pretty open like you'd expect from a 1-ply head, but the underlay ring around the edge helps focus the tone of the drum and takes away the annoying high overtones you'd get without it. I don't even need any extra dampening on my 12" and 13" toms with these heads! My 16" floor tom does have a full moongel at the edge of the batter head and half a moongel at the edge of the resonant head, but that's not a whole lot. Everything sounds great, even in my small bedroom where the acoustics aren't ideal for drums. My only gripe is that Remo's prices seem to have gone up lately, but these seem to be lasting quite well for me, so I won't have to replace them for another couple months at least. They obviously aren't as durable as 2-ply heads, but unless you're either playing super hard or hitting them at the wrong angle (or both), I doubt you'll have to replace them that often. When I need to replace the ones I have now, I'm putting more of the same ones on! Fantastic heads!

                      I've been using Power Stroke 3's now for several years. Never had a problem so far. Easy to tune and very durable. Kills the extra annoying rings your toms pick up while playing. I'd recommend Powerstoke3 or pinstripes.

                      what a great drumhead. i've used quite a few differnet drumheads, and these are the best in my opinion. just the right amount of reverb, but not to much, and SO easy to tune. i have them for my batter and resonating heads, they sound great!
