I use this head on a 14x6,5 mapel Free Floating Snare. The drum sounds really nice, warm and fat. That's exactly what I was going for. And do not think that it does not ring because of the thickness that results from the two plies and the sticker underneath. Without dampening the drum has a nice clean and long sustain ... depending on tuning of course. After experimenting with moon gel in a recording situation we achieved a really big, wet rock sound, tuned mid- to low-range, I'd say. Of course the coating wears off as it does with heads of this kind. But in general it lasts quite long and still sounds ok. I'd definitively use it again.
Now I'm pretty sure I got a faulty product because Remo are usually amazing and I've been using them for years. The dot cracked up and crumbled inside my snare which was very annoying because it effected the sound obviously.
If the dot stayed put I'm sure this is a great head. I'll stick to the CS X though. Suits my playing better.
