I've used felt strips on Ambassador heads. They work best off center and a bit looser (not overly stretched). PS3 still controls the highs better and less futzing around with the felt strips. Haven't tried the Remo with them built in though.So does anyone have experience with felt strips and no any "proper" methods to get the most evenly dampened sound? Might an evenly dampening felt strip be placed closer to the center? I don't even know if I want the sounds evenly dampened. Using moon gels, I've always assumed that having multiple pieces equidistant from each other was the best way to make sure the entire drum is evenly dampened. Is that about right?
Do coated GMADs not exist?
What do you all prefer? How might you compare it to an Evans EQ3 coated batter head?
