I was surprised too, thought the Superkick would sound great, but on my Yamaha drum it didn't. It sounded good on lesser quality drums....I don't know. I had a black ambassador front head with a 4" hole ported at the 4 o"clock position on the head, small pillow just touching both heads. The superkick had a boingy plasticy sound on the drum. I replaced it with a PS3 at the time and the PS3 sounded 100 times better. Just my experience, but I posted this in a thread last year sometime and got similar comments from others, so I guess it's not an isolated incident.

Very strange, I used them on my MCA's with a ported regulator front head with nothing else inside and it sounded incredible, best sounding head I have ever used.

Of all the drums out there I've played YAMAHA bass drums are the most finicky when it comes to heads, especially single plys.

They seems to work best with two ply's.... SUPERKICK II, as opposed to SKl.

The REGULATOR would make a difference, as I've said b/f its the best sounding front head I've heard yet, with the first generation being deeper sounding than the new ones (different mylar thickness).

So I suppose it is within QC limits at Evans since it does not have an effect on the sound.

Basically, when the hoop is rolled, it is cut by a machine that is automated to calculate the length needed for a specified size, so to have a few here and there that are cut short (creating the V you mentioned at the joint) or cut long (creating the opposite effect of an external point at the joint, which I have never seen) I would expect. A machine can only determine how far the rollers move, not whether or not the alluminum channel actually moved with them.
While this is a rarity, I have seen it happen in the past. Out of the heads that I've seen, I've only ever had one that couldn't be tuned. That being said, we addressed the issue and believe that we have resolved it permanently.

Thanks!

I've got a set of coated G1 to put on my toms. Haven't had time to do so yet.

What is the difference wth the Orchestral 300 and Hazy 300? Thicker?

I've been a Remo guy for a long time but I recently bought a set of EC2s for my maple kit and I do have to admit I like them a lot. They sound great and they don't show a lot of wear either.

Orchestra heads have opaque film.

I'm with Remo. Reason being that a drum teacher recommended the brand to me when i wanted to do my first head change from stock Pearl ProTone's. So far Remo has worked for me and I've had no complants about them. I do however, have one Evens head, Its on the snare side of my black wrap Export snare. I personally hear no difference between a Remo Ambassador SS and a Evens Hazy 300.
