  • Has anyone tried the new Drum Tec 3 Ply "Real Feel" Mesh Heads?

    I'm just trying to formulate my best way forward in upgrading my TD12 kit.

    I've noticed Drum Tec have a new 3 ply "Real Feel" mesh head they claim has almost the same rebound as an acoustic kit.

    As I'm considering a Diabolo shell pack, I'm wondering if I should go the whole hog and order them fitted with these new heads.

    I just how no idea if they're really better or if it's just a marketing thing?
    I was hoping someone might of had a go with one.

    Thanks
    tht

      Didn't know about this, thanks!

      21 for real feel 12"...I think I'll get just a snare at that price lol. No doubt it will be awesome, Drum-tec 2-ply is better than my Zed 2-ply and 3-ply imo.

        I like my Zed triple x 3ply heads and a 12" is about half the price of the drumtec offering. Still, be interesting to know how they compare.

            Yes, I upgraded my whole Drum tec kit with these 3 ply drum tec mesh heads, definitely a better, less bouncy feel, especially on the snare, where it is highly recommended. My two drummer pals also noticed quite an improvement. I do not know other three ply mesh heads.

                Compared to the older 2 ply drum tec meshes, the three ply drum tec are a bit louder, since they are denser, but only a little bit, perhaps the biggest volume boosts happens on the biggest Tom Tom. Compared to the click on Roland plastic cymbals, it's is negligible.
                I do not know z ed.

                IMHO 3ply even improves triggering a bit, perhaps a tiny bit less hot spots. but I did not change back to 2ply to prove this impression.
