After watching this video, I was so inspired by the sound of your snare that I began a search for this exact snare. Out of sheer luck, I found one locally in 8.5/10 condition. I fit a remo Ambassador X but that head, no matter how I tune it, can't seem to touch the sound you're getting with the PS3. I'm not using any muffling/dampeners but cannot seem to obtain that beefy tone you're getting.
I'm curious how you tune the reso side head - high or low? Are you using the stock reso head & snare wires? How much would you attribute your sound to the Powerstroke head? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated and applied.
Thank you,
Chris

Hey buddy. I hope you complete your registration for my site. Would love to have you on here.
You are very lucky to find one of these snares. Congratulations. They sound amazing. I really love this PS3 head. I have gone through a lot of the different Remo heads lately and they all change the sound a little differently. I found this one was the sound I was after. It really takes away the ring that I do not enjoy on any snare.

I am using the stock reso, and I have both heads tuned to a medium tension. My reso's are always tuned just a big lower then the batters. I am also using the stock snare wires. I think the beefy tone comes from not tuning the heads too tight. Most guys like to have there snare drums really tight, which gives them a nice crack, but not much fullness. If I need a real crack I just do a rim shot which sounds great on this drum. Enjoy your snare. They are a beautiful instrument. :)

Loose? I thought I had this thing pretty tight :) It is very dry sounding. It does squelch the brightness a bit. Maybe that is why you think it is loose. I am guessing you like a much more open sound like most people do. I think I am in the minority on this.


I tune my snare pretty high and I don't use any muffling. I like a certain amount of overtones. They color the sound.

This beautiful snare seems to have some potential. Too bad the Powerstroke head allows only a loose tuning (at least that's what I noticed on my BP birdseye maple).
