Not completely convincing

Algon, 12.06.2017
First noticeable: extremely thick fur, very realistic natural fur look. Easily tunable with extremely warm and full sound.
Now the negative: I am really no leadfuss and kicked very moderately. Nevertheless, the "coat" with normal Beater and without additional damping on my 20er Bassdrum "The fur sounds then to cardboard box.
Also the surface is extremely sensitive. Without fur protector (point stickers), there are immediately Macken. The layer crumbles, I was very irritated.
Have then a Remo-Fallam draufgepbt, which takes this coat but then the complete soundcharakter.
So if you want to use the fur undisturbed for jazz:
Unconditionally and immediately very soft Beaterkopf buy.
In general you can say: the coat develops only completely undamped the typical natural sound. Any form of damping kills the hoped-for sound. If you want to dampen anyway, you should buy another coat in Ambassador Strength. The coat is still with an additional damping ring, which - in my opinion - makes no sense at all.
I personally would not buy it again, since it is also one of the most expensive skins.

Sound: Very close to the calf skin!

16.01.2017
I was very curious about this order. Already when unpacking: The fur looks like a natural skin deceptively similar.
The surface also feels organic.
Noticeable: The coat is thicker than a natural fur.
I put the coat on a completely restored and defoliated Newsound 20x14er Bassdrum reared.
Sound: Instantly bombastic! Warm, almost no overtones and with a fat bass part, which even buzzes the threaded sleeves in the lugs. Pure joy. Yes, the nature sound was exactly achieved. Very easy to tune. Better does not go! On a 22 or 24 Bassdrum, this coat must sound gigantic vintage. Not only for jazz, but also for an open Bonham sound.
The only question is whether the inserted foil edge damping ring must be. I think no.
As an Emad version, it will probably be duller. I think that makes no sense.
And now the drop of vermouth: In the hurry I forgot to adhere the transparent circle-the protection for the beater's surface.
After about 2 hours of moderate single-pedal play with felt beater already showed a small wear on the coat surface. So, definitely stick the dot, maybe even stick a thicker on it. Conclusion: The surface is very sensitive.
I am curious about the longevity of the fur.
I think this coat is not for hard hitter or lead.
Otherwise: Sound top for jazz to vintage hard rock with single pedal.
