Default Remo Powerstroke as resonant

Hey
I use Remo Emperors on batter and Remo Ambassador on resonant (toms btw). I play alot of metal etc so i like quite a 'thud' sound , with not much overtone. I dampen them with moongel , and im wondering what the effect would be if i use powerstrokes as resonants?

Hmm, you can be pretty surprised what does and doesn't work as a resonant head.

A Powerstroke though I'd be a bit weary of. Especially on small toms. I haven't really researched though so it's hard to say. For a strong tone I might put Clear Emperors as resos, but probably only on the floor tom...

What's Remo's customer service like...you could try asking them...

Lloyd.

I've used P3 heads batter and reso on kicks, and you get a nice punchy, no/very little overtone with that combo. I'd venture to guess that combo would work on larger toms, 14x14, 16x16, 18x16, etc., but I'll agree with FJ as far as smaller tom sizes go. Having never tried that combo, on a rack tom personally, however, speculation on my part. Give it a whirl and tell us what happens.
