Great set for snare!

My friend recommended I use this as my resonant head for a better sounding bass drum in the jazz idiom, so this is generally what I use it for. It sounds best to me when tuned high and tight. Deciding which head to purchase solely depends on what kind of sound you want. If you want a "fat" low pitched sound for instance,a pinstripe ebony works well. But if you want a bright "punchy" sound, then this head will suffice. The standard batter head is the powerstroke 3 (which is a good head to start with); but once you've developed an ear for it, i supposed you can begin to deviate from that as well.
