I bought 2 of these bad boys and a couple of retro screens... I figured that would give me the punch I was looking for. The retro screen sounded great with my remo powerstroke 3 (which I've had for about a year, with very little damage and no holes). So I slapped this on the batter side. Low and behold, about a week later, the first ply is shredded. Now I can't run 2 bass drums if I choose until I get new heads. I think 2 ply heads just don't do well under heavy hitting, as strage as it sounds.
Simply put, this is the best bass head Ive ever heard or used. I slapped it on my 22in birch kick, and tightened it just until there were no wrinkles in it. I instantly loved the sound. It gave the drum a deep thud with very little resonance and no overtones. definitely worth it.
Best all-around consistency in the studio, minimal work to get the fat tone. Live, it's one of the punchiest heads out there. I like the versatility of the head on both birch and maple kits, both of which I use in live and studio applications. If you have a thin shelled (5 ply or less) kick drum that gets a little choked by the heavier muffling of a Superkick II or EMAD, try the EQ3.
This head is very versatile for your bass drum. It has a great feel and can be tuned both very high and low, depending on what style music you play and what sound you want.
