GP3 head for surdo (P3 - 250 Micron: 0,25mm)

Product overview

GP3 heads are thick, single-layered synthetic heads with a saturated sound, medium bass character and very little overtones. They produce a full, strong and almost matt tone due to their thickness and vibration behaviour - thick heads vibrate less than than thin heads. A special feature of the GP3 heads is the distance between the aluminium rim and and the surface of the head which is larger, compared to other brands, meaning that the head will settle well on your instrument shell straight away.

Resonance head or batter head? GP3 heads are ideally used as batter heads. For a resonance head, a thinner option will vibrate stronger and in combination with a GP3 batter head produce a nicer sound.

Give it some time: The life career of a head begins with the moment you put it on your drum for the first time. Each time you tune it, the head will fit itself more comfortably onto the rim of shell being the base for the head. Also in terms of sound, time has an effect on every head. New heads often sound a bit whiny when freshly fitted onto the drum. But after a short break-in time and regular playing, the sound will quickly improve. A new head also will lift the rim higher. Each time you tune your drum, the head will sit itself lower down on the base and the rim can settle.

In short: New head - high rim, whiny sound. After a break-in time - low rim, nice sound
