This is the second MVII bass batter I have purchased. My first was a MVII 22" on a C&C maple kit. I loved the first head, but it developed a dent in the middle of the head during transport (never happened with any other heads). I could not find this head again so I purchased a Remo Emperor coated, Pinstripe coated and a PS3 coated and nothing came close to the sound of the MVII. Fortunately, I stumbled into my local Sam Ash and they had the MVII Deep, so I purchased it immediately. Slapped it on, seated the head and quickly tuned all in about 5 minutes. Without a doubt, best sounding and best feeling drumhead I have used. Super low-end sound and loud, very loud. Highly recommended (with the floating muffling ring). Cheers!
