Re: my review Super Kick 1 / Regulator combo
I've had great luck with the SuperKick batter heads and it seems that most people are in the same boat.
However, I will say that I couldn't get my 16"x24" Ludwig Classic Maple bass drum to sound "right" with a SuperKick II batter and stock reso. It sounded a little more "dead" than I wanted, so I tried a PS3 and whoa, the difference is unbelievable!
So... I guess it (obviously) depends on the drum and what you're trying to get out of it. I didn't want my 24" to sound as muffled as it did, so I went to a PS3 and couldn't be happier.
Still love my SuperKick 1 on my 14"x22" drum, though!
