After hearing my drummer friends rave about this head, I finally decided to pull the trigger and buy one, which I installed on my 14x5 Ludwig Acrolite. I liked it immediately! This is the thickest head I've ever used on any snare drum, and yet it's still very responsive and easy to tune, with a very well-balanced tone and a solid attack when struck dead-center. I didn't need to use any tape or Moongel to muffle it, and I think lot of that has to do with the built-in muffling ring. It's a bit thinner than the ring on a Powerstroke 3 (which I always thought was too wide and choked the tone of toms and snare drums), so you get just the right amount of overtones on top, even at high tension (think Clyde Stubblefield circa 1969). If you have a metal snare drum that rings a lot, this is a perfect fit. Bottom line: Remo really knocked it out of the park with this one!

Center ring started to peal up into the first set. My stick would actually get stuck underneath the coating. Made for a very difficult night of playing. I've been playing for over 40 years and used nothing but Remo heads but I would not recommend this one.

Comments about Remo Powerstroke 77 Coated Clear Dot Drumhead:

This head is great. It is similar to the Evans EC2 reverse dot. This one has a lower pitch and better dampening. It has a great fat sound perfect for rock. It is ver durable, highly recommended.

                The coating pealed right off. Started with center dot and my stick started getting stuck under the coating. Been playing for over 40 years and have always used Remo heads. I would not recommend this one though.

                    I put this on a truth custom 14x8 brass and WOW. This thing sounds so good. This works very well as a low tuned, fat, punchy rock snare head. I will definitely buy this again.

                      Perfect for my Pork Pie Pig Iron snare. Helps reduce metallic over ring. Has a fat, back beat crack that cuts through loud music. Sounds great with loose tuning. Not easy to play press rolls, head isn't responsive near rim. However, that's not why I got this head. To reduce ring while delivering loud, fat crack; especially with a metal shell, this is a great head.

                              Slap the head on and forget about the rest. I was AMAZED at how it made my Steel Ludwig Snare sound. I have only tried this head at a medium tension and WOW does this snare really crack and sound like a shotgun blast. My snare seems significantly louder and sounds even better than it ever has before.

                              HIGHLY recommend trying this snare head out. I guarantee you won't want to buy any other. I am not a paid sponsor and this is a 100% genuine review.

                                            I have tried snare heads from remo, evans and aquarian by far this head sounded best than what i have use, i tried evans hybrid, genera dry, aquarian hi velocity and hi energy, remo emeperor x and ambassador. but this is the one i really want because it got the control and tone that i want for a snare head, its durable, because its 2ply and its musical because of its construction.

                                              The P77- came out nearly a year ago, but due to popular demand, REMO started shipping them in the early spring. I finally got one and slapped it on a SPAUN 4x14 inch Birch snare sounds amazing. It has the extra needed for warmth and durability, but can still be cranked up. I am currently using it for playing live clubs and restaurant casuals.
                                              It's definitely thicker and differ. then what I normally use(Emperor or Controlled sound-X) but theres something I like about this head! Also, this things always sold out!... so when you order one, just buy two! then you will be set.

                                              Thanks for reading!

                                                  I've used every snare head that Remo/Evans/Aquarian have to offer, and this one is my favorite. It dampens the overtones the perfect amount: not too dry, not too much ring. Ghost notes are incredibly easy to play on it despite it being a pretty thick 2 ply head. I've bashed on it for a week straight and you can hardly notice, so the durability is a huge plus too. This one is backordered just about everywhere (for good reason), but it is worth the wait. Buy it!

                                                      This new Remo batter snare head sounds great on my wood and brass snare drums. My only comment on the negative side would be that as a new head they
                                                      need frequent re-tuning. I can understand that with a new head some stretching will take place. In my experience this has been true of both tom and snare batters. I don't recall it being such a problem with Evans heads.

                                                      I bought this head looking for something that would kill overtones and it durable. This does both, and really well.

                                                      I was previously using a standard coated ambassador, but I found myself switching those out every month, and can't afford to keep doing that being low on money and playing shows every month and practicing every spare moment I have.

                                                      The only complaint is that this head was a little harder to seat to the shell (45 degree bearing edge), but it was worth it.
