    Comments about Pearl MFH Mesh Tom Head for Rhythm Traveler Drum:

    I bought some new Alesis 8" toms on [@] and the seller included these Pearl MFH-8 Muffle Heads in the package. I converted all three toms to these heads myself in under five minutes per head, and am completely pleased. These are a little more "metallic" than the mesh heads on my Roland PD-120 snare, so they don't have quite the same bounce-back and feel, and unlike the Roland, they require a circular piece of foam between the mesh head and the piezo trigger (for looks, if nothing else -- these things are completely see-through). Nonetheless, they are SIGNIFICANTLY better than the horrible Alesis "RealHead" pads, which have the piezo mounted on a sandwich of hard plastic, metal, and brittle foam rubber-like material, and the RealHeads themselves are a type of thin metal that sounds like a pie plate when you take them off and hit them by themselves. Those RealHead pads have a feel worse than cheap rubber pads, and thanks to the metal heads and metal plate, are not very sensitive nor quiet in my experience. So, the fact I could convert that junk to a decent mesh head at a price this low was a great thing.I haven't had mine more than a month, so I can't judge durability myself yet, but so far, no problems at all.*NOTE: There is more to the conversion than just removing the metal Alesis head and replacing it with this mesh head if you really want to do it right. There are various levels of sophistication, the most complicated of which involves soldering. At a minimum you need to scrape the piezo off that metal/plastic rig it's mounted to and throw that junk away. Contrary to most of the how-to videos, you can do the conversion without soldering and by using rather than discarding the foam guts of the original Alesis unit. If you go that route, you can do the conversion in under five minutes, and -- having done toms each way -- I can't tell any difference between the one I did the soldering route and the two I did without detaching the wires. In either case, it isn't complicated and is a drastic improvement in terms of feel, sensitivity, and the quietness of the kit, if you care about that.

    Very good mesh head, good price!!

    Comments about Pearl MFH Mesh Tom Head for Rhythm Traveler Drum:

    These heads are comparable to the Evan's mesh heads or the Triggerhead mesh heads. Very responsive, and feels very much like an acoustic head. You can practice for as long as you want without killing your ears or needing hearing protection.

    Awesome

    By P. W.

    Comments about Pearl MFH Mesh Tom Head for Rhythm Traveler Drum:

    These are ideal for someone who needs to have a quieter practice environment. Gives same tension as real heads and when tuned they give the tone of the drum. A must for basement drummers that don't want to start a war.
