For the most part this drum head gives a solid attack, medium sustain and pretty good tone.Having been using this head over a year now and only just needing replacement, it's a tough one! I use this on my Gretsch Catalina Maple 14" x 5.5" in a kit context for Rock and Pop bands so it has been doing the rounds with cover bands, dep work etc.
As someone who finds tuning drums difficult, especially snare drums, this head has always been relatively easy to get a nice sound from. The head itself lies very flush against the bearing edges, which makes it easier maintaining consistent tension around it. I had been playing the head regularly for almost a month before it started to erode the batter coating.
Aesthetically, if using painted sticks it will leave colour marks rather easily. A minor issue albeit, but also because of my sharp metal hoops I shed wood quickly which lodges itself in the small gap between.
With the genres I normally play in, the tone generally suits the vibe. For someone else it may not be a 'dry' enough head. Would definitely recommend to like-minded drummers,
