I just got a 18x20 kick off of ebay and was wondering what heads you guys are driving. Its a Tama SC.Perf. Birch. Im thinking emad or powerstroke 3.

I love the sound of the Powerstroke 3.
I'm gonna get one just as soon as my stock head gives out.
I've heard the EMADs and they sound good, but to me, the PS3 sounds just as good if not better for much cheaper and no rings to hassle with putting in and out and all that jazz.
Just my opinion.

I have a 17x20 inch Yamaha Stage Custom Birch kick and right now I'm using an Aquarian Super Kick 1-ply (clear) on the batter, and an Ebony Powerstroke 3 on the resonant side. The drum sounds fantastic, with no muffling inside.

17x20 Stage Custom Advantage Kick
P3 batter, coated Ambassador on the resonant side - no port. Small blanket inside. Sounds sweet.

I use Coated EMADs on all my kicks for the perfect boom, pop & oomph. I haven't seen one in a store though, you'll need to special order it. Well worth the wait IMO.

FYI, the EMAD only does its magic with a wide-open kick, so no pillows please!

PS3 Batter(clear) & Reso(ebony).

It gets better the older it is, by this I mean, that after you re tune it the first time it will sound better than the first time it touches the bearing edge.

I love it, they are pretty cheap too.

I have more thump than I know what to do with....

Though next time I think I might go smooth white on the reso.
