I think these are great heads but just not for me, I like pinstripe better, but thats not to say they are not good, they are, they should last a long time and they sound awesome for any rock situation hey, travis barker uses these!
These heads sound good, a tad to much resonance for my taste however and I never use any dampening on my drums they are made to sing! these heads however resonate forever. I was very surprised how bright they are for a 2 ply head they also have great volume good attack and very good durability, I have tried the evans onyx and hands down if you want a black drumhead go with this one and toss a moongel on it and it will sound great! Very easy head to tune also, overall they do sound deep and punchy with nice attack
The black looks good and the finish is great it stays on!
Ease of Use
its a drumhead you hit it
This is a very well built head as are all remo heads, should take quite a beating for some time!
On par with all the others I guess a much better value than the onyx head by evans, those things are cardboard boxes

The Wow Factor
If your a heavy hitter and dont mind some extended resonance then these heads are great, awesome for any rock, metal anything and plenty of projection, the back really looks awesome!
