    Default Evans EQ2 vs. Remo Powerstroke 3..

    What is the difference between the Evans EQ@ and the Remo Powerstroke 3?, which head would offer a better thump/thud sound on the bass..?? i want my bass to sound like the drummer from Rise Against

    A Remo Powerstroke 3 would definitly give you the thud your looking for. Im not to sure about the Evans EQ2 head.

    umm actually powerstroke 3= eq4
    eq2 is a 2 ply head while powerstroke 3 is single ply.

    i have the eq2 and its pretty good. very solid and aggressive with a very loud deep thud/thump. very durable and powerful. my only complaint would be that it lacks a little bottom end.
    other than that sounds exactly what u r looking for.

    the only difference between a singly ply and a double ply head is more durability...right??

    Its more durable but its a different sound as well. Click here: www.remo.com and read about the drumhead descriptions. Particulary the Ambassadors and Emperors. You will have a much better understanding of the sound.

    yeah a 2 ply head will sound more muffled and be more durable. if im not mistaken they are also slightly louder and maybe a bit deeper sounding??
