A good, versatile head.
25.12.2014
Having used EMADs for years, I decided I was after a change. As I was going for Controlled Sounds on my toms and have used Coated CS Dots on my snares for as long as I can remember, I decided to plump for the relatively new Powerstroke 3 with Dot.

This is a great head for those looking for the feel of a single-ply kick head, but with a bit more control than a run of the mill coated Ambassador or equivalent. The dot and powerstroke strip around the edge of the head act as dampers so you can get a lovely controlled tone whilst still appearing 'open'. I pair this with a felt strip across the resonant head for that extra bit of 'thump'.

As with all coated heads, the coating adds some warmth to the tone and takes away some beater attack- so if you're after a more in-your-face, modern sound i'd either go for something like the Evans EMAD clear, or the clear version of this head (which also includes a Remo kick patch). It's also worth mentioning that this head has it's dot mounted on the rear, whereas the clear counterpart has a forward attached dot. Although i've had problems with the coating on other Remo heads in the past, this one is holding up well after three months of regular play, without any reinforcement patches.

Overall, i've been very pleased with this head- it's especially great for rock, pop and ska music!

I already had this coat in clear, and was satisfied with it. The Dot results in a slightly harder stop sound, in the end just the counterpart to the Controlled Sound skins, only for the bass drum. Nevertheless, the sound was still round, voluminous and resonant.

However, I was not really happy with the Powerstroke 3 Coated Dot. Already when putting on the coat, I noticed that it did not seem to work quite evenly. When tuning, significantly more revolutions were needed on one side to evenly tighten the coat. I did not have this problem with the Clear version (which of course could have just been an outlier in production).

When I played it sounded drier and had less resonance than the Clear. This is usually the case with coated skins and in itself nothing negative. However, the sound changed for me for the worse. The attack sound was clearly highlighted, too hard for me. In addition, the coat lacked resonance and tone. Maybe the glued dot, in connection with the coating then too much.

To be fair, I have to write that after that I did not continue to deal with different moods, maybe a better result would have been achievable. However, I felt the coat in direct comparison with approximately the same mood as before in the clear version as described above.

I think the Powerstroke 3 Coated Dot suits people who are looking for a really controlled, rather dry tone with a distinct attack. For me, the clear version is the better choice (more sound, more resonance, less hard attack).
