View Full Version : Remo Coated PS3 for snare batter

Hey everyone, I went to GC today and picked up a 14" Remo Coated Powerstroke 3 snare head. I've never used one before, and it will be tomorrow night before I can put it on my snare. Anyone ever used one of these on their snare and have any reviews? Thanks

I had one, sounded nice, the coating wore off REAL fast, and looked real tacky. Real nice sounding head though!

the snare I put it on is a 14x6.5 Mapex Pro Wood snare.......not sure what kind of wood. They didnt' have any hazy reso's in stock..........but I was wondering if I should get a ambassador or emporer snare side head?

You cant go wrong with an ambassador on the reso side. Its thin and sensitive. And you can still hit it hard with your sticks and it wont go nowhere.

Although I haven't tried the Remo Powerstroke 3, I am very familiar with the Evans Genera, which has the muffle ring like the Powerstroke.
This is a little fatter sounding with the slightly muffled sound.
I'm sure you will like the Powerstroke if you like a slightly muffled snare drum sound.
What snare drum are you going to put this head on?

I really liked the powerstroke 3, I used it on a 3.5x14 maple snare, it calmed it down a little bit, warmed it up some too. The head lasted forever and a day, but I eventually switched it up with an ambassador coated when that snare got moved to an aux. position.
