Default RemO's sound

I want the sound you get with remO's but don't want the actual remO and i read that a two ply head would do the same thing. Any Help?

Evans Hydraulic heads might be what you are after. Hydraulics are 2 ply with oil in between, so there's no need for a RemO or any muffling.

If you're looking for the sound of a head with a RemO on it, try an Aquarian Studio-X head. It is a single ply, clear or coated head with a muffling ring underneath. It has roughly the same tone.

Moongel does the same thing as dampening rings, but i prefer dampening rings a little more.

What is the problem with getting them?

I don't like the sound of the rings themselves. They tend to flatten the drum sound out too much and make the tone less natural. Heads that have them built in sound more full because the ring is part of the head and can vibrate with it.

Thanks for all the info guys!!!
I had thought about the hydraulics but thought that might
sound likethe drum was wet or something.

I don't like remO's because they don't flow with the drum and
sometimes vibrate against the rim of the drum.

I haven't tried any aquarian heads before so i don't know much about them.

How about some info on the dots snare heads.

Hydraulics would be far too dead sounding.

Dot snare heads?

I used one once and it was a nice head. It had a good controlled sound to it. Nice crack. But it's been a while so I don't remember much else.

Actually the studio-x sound little more open than any single ply medium weight with Rem-O-Ring on.

Let say Remo pinstripe or Aquarian Performance II

powerstroke 3 is a single ply head with a remO type muffle ring built in under the head. Powerstroke 4 is the same except 2-ply.

Thinking about it maybe Performance II would be too muffle I have thought of another one which we, Aquarian user, forgot too often, it's the Aquarian Focus-X. This head is between the Studio-X and Performance II.

Remo Powerstroke 3's, they are single ply and they have the ring built in, so that would be perfect.

Moongels are a great solution because you can add only as much muffling as you want. You can use them in different places on the head, you can use multiple pieces, you can cut pieces in half.

For $6 I'd experiment with them before buying a new head you may end up not liking.
