Overview

The Powersonic bass drumheads give the drummer controlled mid-range and low end for the most powerful bass drum sound that's It, right out of the box.

The Powersonic bass drumheads are constructed of 2-ply 7-mil Mylar with two specifically placed internal subsonic dampening rings with External Snap-on Dampening System (ESDS) technology. The two mounted 3/4" internal dampening rings enhance low end without affixing trays or hard-backed dampening materials to the drumhead.

The unique patent pending ESDS system employs snaps mounted directly to the drumhead to eliminate the possibility of vibration. This allows you to easily customize your muffling, feel, and sustain for different playing situations by "snapping" the strategically placed weighted pillow to the drumhead. Also included is the Falam Slam for added attack and durability.

Well I went to my local store to pick up an Evans Emad head, and I was told they had ran out earlier that day. I need a kick head and I was leaving out of town with my drums the next morning. I decided to go ahead and give the powersonic a try.....WOW....What a great suprise. It had more bottom end then I could ever ecpect from a head. And It was so deep and punchy. Great Head Guys

Just bought this costly drum head, and I do not hear what everyone else does. I play double bass Pearl export, one bass has the EMAD with small dampening ring, and an ebony PS-3 as the resonant. The other the Powersonic, overall, the EMAD produces a better tone, and punch. The Powersonic, just has attack. I am not a big Evans fan, but here Evans has the better bass drum head.

Best I've Ever Tried

By 

from Los Angeles, California

Comments about Remo Powersonic Clear Bass Drumhead:

This product is very effective -- I've lost the pillow, and got muffle-free dampening!

Perfect Sound and Flexability

By 

from Glendale, Arizona

Comments about Remo Powersonic Clear Bass Drumhead:

I searched all over webpages of different companies and when all was said and done decided that this head had the sound and features that I was looking for. I put this on my 22 inch PDP set-up and was very impressed with the results. I like my bass drum with little muffling inside and even with the stock reso head have a great punchy and deep thud. Yes the price out the door was steep but then can you put a price on perfection! Buy this head and you will be as impressed as I was. You can bank on it!

amazing

By 

from St. Louis, MO

Comments about Remo Powersonic Clear Bass Drumhead:

this bass head is by far one of the most amazing sounding head ive used. it has great durability and amazing tone once u get it tuned right. the only flaw that it has is that after a while, the buttons that attach to the head, are falling off the felt. i dont know if i can by another attachment piece seperate but i sure as hell hope so. overall amazing and worth your money

Terrible design

By 

from Detroit, MI

Comments about Remo Powersonic Clear Bass Drumhead:

I've always used the Emad bass drum head but after a few weeks the plastic rings on those always come unglued and crack off no longer holding the muffling onto the head. When this new Remo design first came out it seemed like a fantastic one compared to the emad, so I had to try it out. I got home with my new powersonic head, pulled it out of the box and the foam rings were already coming unglued. I went back to GC and returned it for another which seemed to be in excellent condition. I got home, put it on, tuned it up and started jamming. After about 20 minutes of playing the foam rings on the inside of the 2nd head started coming unglued again. I then had to take it off, reglue it, put it back on and tune it up again. What a hassel! So i played with it glued on for quite some time and after adjusting the snap on dampening system many times it eventually started to rip the snap out of the head. I'm about to try out the Aquarian superkick. I've heard only great things about it so far and I have recorded a drummer with this head and it sounded fantastic.

Worth it!!

By

Comments about Remo Powersonic Clear Bass Drumhead:

this drumhead is amazing it makes such a nice hit each time with no ring and if u want it to ring then u can just take off one of the damper and it will ring great for rock sets

Absolutely Awesome

By 

from Ohio

Comments about Remo Powersonic Clear Bass Drumhead:

This head is it. Played the Evans Emad for several years and this head is so much better. Offers that full sound you want out of the bass drum where you can actually feel and hear that low end bass sound that all drummers love, but at the same gives you the ability to have that controlled sound at the same time. Can't say enough about this head. I love Evans, but Remo just won the battle as far as bass drum heads are concerned. I advise any drummer, to go with this head. Most versatile head I have ever played. You can get just about any sound you want out of this head. Very easily tuned as well. Great job Remo. I have this head on my Yamaha absolute maple kit and my pacifc cx kit. Sounds just as good on either.

BEST HEAD EVER!!!

By 

from Miami, Fl

Comments about Remo Powersonic Clear Bass Drumhead:

I just got this head to try out some remo heads because ive always used evans, and i will probably use the powersonics for my bass heads from now on. They look awesome and sound even better, and you can tune them real tight and still have an awesome punch, they will work amazingly with any quality shells. They come with a falam slam so you can also have that nice little click sound if you use a wooden beater. And the best part of this is that I actually have nothing stuffed in my bass drums to muffle them thats how great these heads are, no more pillows or anything in your kicks. Do not be hesitant to buy this head it will do its job much better than you expect.

Nice one Remo!

By 

from Argonne, WI

Comments about Remo Powersonic Clear Bass Drumhead:

Even when tuned pretty loose, there's still a nice tone. Doesn't sound 'papery' or anything. I can play my 22" with no pillow (only a bath towel folded in half... not touching either head) and a stock resonant head with no mic hole and STILL have a controlled yet big sound.

Amazing bass drum head!

By 

from California

Comments about Remo Powersonic Clear Bass Drumhead:

This thing is amazing. Remo did a great job with this one. I feel it solves the problem of having to put a pillow or a blanket in your bass drum. As long as you know how to tune. Tune the head a little loose and you'll get a nice thud or tighten it up and you'll get a really nice attack and nice pop. Well worth the money. BUT IT NOW!!

Perfect

By 

from Miami, Fl

Comments about Remo Powersonic Clear Bass Drumhead:

Finally my stock bass drum head broke :D Today was the day to choose between Evans EMAD 2 or Remo Powersonic Clear Bass Drum Head. At my church, the main temple's drumset has the Remo Powersonic Clear Bass drum head and then the drums in the chapel (Smaller size temple) has the Evans EMAD 2. They both sound great but just to make sure I asked the main drummer of the Adult service. He's a Sabian Cymbal Artist, so I take all his advice and use them. He said go with the Remo Powersonic because the foam and sound of the Emads are starting to loose its quality. So I went to my local Guitar Center and purchased the Remo Powersonic Clear Bass Drum Head. Went home, put the head on, 1 minute tuning just to hear how it sounds. When I sat down and hit that 1st note all I can say was wow, where have you been all my life ! This bass drum head will not take away 5 pounds from your wallet or make you doubt of not going with the EMAD's. This head will simply give you that low BOOM sound you've always wanted. God bless !
