The Remo Powerstroke Pro Coated bass drumhead gives a moderate attack, a boosted low-end, and excellent overtone control.
The Powerstroke Pro Coated is made with a single ply of 10mil coated film, plus a permanently mounted acoustic foam control ring on the outside of the head. The acoustic foam has a felt backing and is pushed into the drumhead to increase its effectiveness. The foam eliminates high pitch overtones, and gives a focused mid and low frequency sustain. Since overtones are controlled, this drumhead is also easier to tune compared to more open heads.
The Powerstroke Pro Coated gives a warmer and more subtle attack (compared to the clear Powerstroke Pro), followed by a short, deep sustain. The thinner single ply allows for good responsiveness, even at lower volumes. When hit harder, the coated Powerstroke Pro has a short punch and good projection The overall sound is great both live and in the studio, with the warm coating allowing this drumhead to blend nicely with other instruments. This is a good choice for drummers wanting to control ringing overtones and add some punch to their bass drum sound.
