Here you can find very cool sound clips of different drums.

Listen to the bass drum called "The Judge" (1930’s Ludwig & Ludwig Maple 14″ x 26″).
This is the sound I am after. I love the fooomp kind of sound and still it is not extremely boomy.

Compare it to "The Hammer" which is much more standard sounding.
For me "The Hammer" sounds more standard than their "Standard" bass drum which also sounds really good.

"Big Red" is not so bad either :)

I deleted my two last posts because they did not make any sense.
It was late and I could not think straight :)

A 2ply head is not the same as a muffled 1-ply head.
You are right it is not the same.
But don't you think that the 2-ply PS4 will give less overtones and a more focused sound compared to a PS3 and thereby need less muffling?
