The Remo Powerstroke P3 Fiberskyn Felt Tone is a responsive and moderately controlled drumhead, with an excellent midrange warmth thanks to the synthetic fiber coating.
This drumhead is made with a single ply of 7.5mil film, a 3mil polyspun fiber laminated top coating. For extra control, a 2mil inlay ring and felt strip are added. The top coating is designed to have the look, sound, and feel of calfskin, which gives a nice boost to the midrange and low-end frequencies. The result is quite a warm sound for such a thin drumhead.
The P3 Fiberskyn Felt Tone has a low-moderate sustain, controlled by the combination of an inlay ring and felt strip. The felt strip is a vintage-era bass drum dampening method, which gives added focus and control. The resulting sound has slightly more projection, and less overtones. This drumhead is perfect for lower and medium volumes if warmth and responsiveness are needed but excessive overtones are not.
The P3 Fiberskyn Felt Tone is slightly more punchy and controlled than the P3 Fiberskyn Diplomat, thanks to the added felt strip.
