If you want to change your bass drum sound, get a Remo or Evans single ply head with no muffling. Then add muffling until you get the sound you want.

I've often muffled with a piece of terry cloth folded once or twice and taped to the head with packing or duct tape. It's easily enlarged or shrunk, and you can move it around for different effects. It's also cheaper.


I have a PowerStroke 3-type Batter head, but put a Single-ply Reso head on with an old-school felt strip.

So, in essence, one can use different map routes to arrive at or very near a particular destination.
