[QUOTE=longjohn;427438]I currently have a SK1 on my 24" Slingerland.... same deal I bought a slightly used one cheaply to try out.. It's replacing a Power Stroke also..

I like the sound & the band are happy with it too... so give it a shot.. for 15 bucks you can't go wrong.

Yeah i know, for $15 it's practically giving it away !
i'm gonna try it out and hear it for myself !

cheers,
Rob

I had a Super Kick 1 on a 20" Club Date bass drum and it sounded fantastic!
....I've current got a SK1 on a 22" WFL bass drum and although it gives it a nice low end, there just isn't enough punch out of it for me.

I am also a "Remo guy" deep down.. but I will say that to me, Evans EMAD bass drum heads sound the best and most versatile over all other brands I've used. They come with a thick and a thin muffle ring and you can also take it out and have it wide open.

Same here. I use Remos on everything except the kick. Ambassadors, Ambassador Xs, Ambassador suedes. For some reason the Emads without the foam inserts just sound better on kicks.

Also, using a beveled maple beater at slightly off-center vertically, (Tommy Aldridge model Danmar beater) really gives me the best sound.

Thanks Mo, I may give that beater a try and see how I like it. You really can't go wrong with an EMAD!
