I was always using clear heads on my bass drum, i have used powerstroke 4, 3 and so on.. but i was on budget and i needed bass drum head fast, so i bought this. If it was good for John Bonham, it must be good for me too. When i put it on i was amazed by punch it delivered. And it was warmer then clear ones, and even more dynamic. Haven't tried it in studio yet, but if it will sound good there, i will stick to this one. Truly recommend.
