Default Remo Black Suede

Is anyone out there digging the Remo Black Suede? I thought I'd check first before blowing $45 beans... Let a brother know...

Hey man. Yea Black Suedes are really sweet. Different combos can give you what you want. For instance, if you want a nice and warm, open sound for the toms, go with the Black Suede Ambassadors on both sides. If you're lokking for something a bit more focused and punchy, leave the Ambassador on the bottom and throw a Black Suede Emperor on top. You could get really bold and get a really heavy metal sound with the BS Emperors on each side. For snares, if you are a heavy hitter, go with the BS Black-X head. It's super durable and has most of the same characteristics as the Emperor-X but it depends on what kind of snare and sound you want. Other than the Black-X, a BS Ambassador or Emperor would work nicely on a snare. They even have BS Snare-Side heads too if you want to completely blacken your snare! Lastly, a great BS head for kick drums are the BS Powerstroke 3 on both sides (with a pillow in the drum of course) for a really bottom end sound. Nice and punchy, you know. If you want a more open sound on the kick then put a BS Ambassador on the front side. And always put a 5 inch hole in the front head of a kick for a more rock sound. Overall, Black Suede's are bangin' and worth the money. They look bad-ass too.

Happy drumming!

The Black Suede's are sweet indeed I've got a set of them on my old school power tour custom Yamaha's & they sound great & since it's a black kit they look great also.

the heads have the warmth of a coated head but the projection of a clear head kinda the best of both worlds IMO.

if that's the sound your going after I say go for it.

I'm considering getting a black suede PS3 for my bass batter. I'd like a regular PS3 except just a little more sustain and a little higher tone. Will the black suede PS3 give this to me?

Can anyone give me info about how quickly these get marked up? I play with nylon tips and would be driven insane if my heads had a bunch of white marks on them after only a few hours.

I jam nylon tip sticks also the marks on my Black Suede's are a faint gray not white. It's a batter head so there will be marks no matter what color the head is.

Just as long as I don't have marks on the reso side lol

Yeah i know there will be marks, but the shiny black heads tend to mark up terribly and quickly, so im thinking of going to the blaqck suede, plus i have heard my kit with coated heads and it sounds pretty cool
