Remo developed a special Fiberskyn head to use with Mid-East Metal Doumbeks. The head has a deeper collar than a normal drum head and thus accommodates the rounded shell of the drum. These are very warm and resonant sounding with a nice low bass tone when needed.
Because of the feel and sound of the Strata heads, many Concert snare drummers have found them to be adaptable for wide usage. They are extremely articulate and hold their tuning well. The "Staccato 700" version has been especially popular.
