Default Emperor vs Powerstroke 3

Quick question:
Is a Emperor more resonant than a Powerstroke 3?
Would you recomend the PS 3 on toms?

Thanks ,

yes and yes... theyre both great but both a mile apart in sound... the powerstroke 3 is a single ply with a muffling ring, where as the emp. is a 2ply with no muffling ring.

It really depends on your taste, but most people like 2 ply batters on toms, so i would recommend the emperors, ive used them and they have a really open, bright, but still controlled enough sound.

you might also consider a "Vintage Emperor" head they're thicker than reg. Emperor unless you need to dead the toms I wouldn't. suggest a ps3 for the toms except for maybe reggae most the reggae bands I seen in Jamaica use concert toms but that's the sound they were after.

keep swattin'
