Aw man.....come on, I'm a lazy bastard at heart. You could have at least linked us all up:

Hopefully they've made a better effort with this than they did with the Powersonic (that thing looks truely feeble!!), if they want to go head-to-head with the EMAD.

Still, as a happy user of a standard PS3 for years, I could be tempted to give this a run in my practice room.......where due to lack of wall dampening, overtones have been known to run wild and free. :-)

P.S. Got a giggle out of your member title too!!

I STILL think a regular head (of your choosing) with a Deadringer (foam stick on ring) sounds better than the Emad or this Remo version.

The Deadringer, since it was attached to the head, and not a second piece of material, or a plastic thing glued to the head with a faom insert, just lowered the tone of the head and didn't get ANY of that "thwap" sound I hear in Emads or P3's.

I've played them on the inside and the outside, and they worked best away from the edge just a bit.
I think Remo makes something similar and some drum corp lines use them on the bass drums.

That Powersonic head was/is a total POS IMO sound and design-wise, and I'm even a Remo user.

The Deadringers looked like this stuff, except they were packaged as a pre-made circle.

I used to use the muffle rings
That head looks almost the same except the ring is permanently attached to the outside.

The Muffle rings worked well.
You could also remove the foam ring through the porthole and reinstall it when you wanted to.
I used them during the 80's
What is old is new again!

I also used Muffle rings on my concert toms for recording back in the day.
I would remove the foam from the plastic holder for a gig. The holder would stay in place under the head.
I used these on my round edge drums for years.
