I just found your site. Very informative. Is there any way to put Attack drum heads into the mix?
KInd of offshoot of Stevedot2 above...I bought Remo Powerstroke Pro. It has the dampening foam ring attached. Some questions, if I may:
Head is on finger tight right now. No hole in resonant head
1. Do I still need the pillow inside?
2. The "impact patch"...is it necessary/recommended?
3. I've heard people tuning 2 keys at a time...this is 8 lugs. Should I do 12 and 6 (o'clock), then 3 and 9. then the "in-betweens"?
4 New to drumming...how/where to place a drum dial? (not sure I can tune by ear yet)
Ludwig had the silver dots and I think they were popular in the 70s. Not sure why no one else competes here.I was an Evans hydraulic player for a long time. Love that brand & all the options they give.
I needed an Evans version of the Remo Controlled Sound Black Dot. I was told they have one, but even after contacting D'Addario DIRECTLY, I came home empty handed.
So Remo was my ONLY option for that 70's sound & center durability those heads are known for.
It actually surprised me as most companies have an equivalent of another's head in some form across the board. Single, double, 7-11mm you name it. They ALL had some version of their own.
Except this one.
Seems Remo has the dope spot on this design.
Very true. Forgot about those (and I shouldn't have since I had a kit with those on it at one time).Ludwig had the silver dots and I think they were popular in the 70s. Not sure why no one else competes here.
