Default Remo Powerstroke

Hi all. Just bought a Remo Powerstroke 3 (Coated, Clear Dot 14") for my snare. After I had seated and tuned it, I gave it a go. And all I can say is that I love it and the sounds that it gives me to play with, great for ghosting and such. Anyone else got this on their snare? What do you think? x

I will pre warn you. I love Remo products, however, I think it's absolutely stupid that Remo Coated Powerstroke 3's have the coating on a clear head. This will cause the coating to completely come off the head. It will still sound absolutely fine, but I thought I would warn you.

I wasn't nuts about it. It was nice and dark/warm, with highly controlled overtones, but I didn't think it was sensitive at all. I felt ghost notes were difficult to play such that they were distiguishable from a regular stroke, the volume would change, but the timbre was identical..

I've bought it, I love the sound that im getting but im still not completely happy with it. In anyone else opinion what are the best snares for good sensitivity but something that still sounds good when given a good old wellying?

I am wondering what the effect of powerstroke 3 heads would have on my toms. As you can see in my sig. line I play a Superstar, so that's a birch/basswood hybrid shell. I have emperors on them now, and I like their sound a lot. I also like the more powerful, dry sound it gives when I place an o-ring on them, would they sound like that if I equip them with powerstroke 3's? Or should I go for the two-layer powerstroke 4?

What don't you like about the sound? Too dark, to bright, too dead, too attacky, too ringy, yadda? Keep in mind, you may actually have a problem with the sound of your room, not your drum.

I'd go grab an Emperor or an Ambassador. I wouldn't mind about hitting an Amb hard, I was laying into my Supra yeterday, and it sounded better the harder I hit it. The single ply won't mask any overtones, so if you're tuning or drum construction aren't quite up to par, you'll notice right away. A little tape will fix that, though.
