This is always an essential purchase for my kick drums. Great for extending the durability of your kick drum head (it should really last forever with one of these!)
I've considered other brands but the Evans version is nothing more than a piece of plastic that doesn't seem to do anything to inscrease durability. I'm intrigued by the various "click pads" with the metal disc inside, but have heard stories of them tearing to shreds after a while. The Remo's on the other hand seem indestructable and add a nice beater attack to your kick sound. And the double size makes sure that there's no way a drummer can miss this and damage your head!
This one does seem to be a bit thinner than the last one I bought a few years ago. Not sure if this is just a different thickness that Remo have available (I remember having a few in different colours of varying thicknesses)
The only thing to watch out for, when initially fitting this to the head make absolutely sure that it's on right. If you don't have it stuck on properly from the get go then no amount of superglue etc will help!
Overall absolutely recommended. Pair this with a clear Powerstroke 3 and you'll be all set for a modern rock/metal kick sound!
Acts similarly to the old premier black rings - definitely adds a little to the impact sound, whether soft or hard headed pedals. Gives you bass skin extra protection. Believe me, having to put duct tape on your base drum during a gig is not cool!!! - my double foot pedal went through circa 1979 - never since as I always use extra protection! Worth the cost.
