I should give the SK1 a shot. I'm normally a Remo man, but did try the SK2 once, had that on for a couple of years, but it was just too dry for me.
Ive never played a coated bass head until a few months ago. The coated PS3 is probably one of the best sounding bass heads I've ever had.I have always been partial to the Super Kick II. I currently have a coated PS3 on my 22" Ludwig and 24" Gretsch and I think they sound great. I haven't experimented with the Super Kick on those yet, but I prefer the feel of it.
I haven't used one in so long that I can't really give you an assessment. When I did use one, it was on a 20" Slingerland, and I do remember liking it. I'm thinking of getting a hydraulic for my 22" RC. Right now I'm using a SKII, and I'm thinking the hydraulic will be just a tiny bit more open.What do you guys think of Evans Hydraulics as a batter side head? I have a 20" Slingerland 3 ply bass drum. Anyone used these?
