I don't know how well these would hold up in a Rock gig setting, but I use this drum for low-volume gigs and it has such a great tone.
I have used the Skytone on rock, jazz, folk, and funk gigs and it holds up well for me on the snare. I actually have had the same one on my snare for a year and a half now (I like old heads/not sure why) and it is still holding up. It is close to the point of needing a new now but that snare is played probably a good 20 hours a week.
