First and foremost I play rock music with a Ludwig kit and DW kicker
I found the head to be quite 'boomy' at first, I was more after a tight response.
Once I used a beater pad on the skin it shortened the decay drastically and really gave me the sound I was looking for. I also found the sound more to my liking using the hard side of the beater as that helped with the attack/decay sound I was after to rock music.
Quality was excellent, although I was user a beater pad, so this helped spread the impact of the head on each kick. Remo are a recognised brand mind, and all of their heads have always been superb for me
