Showerhead question


I just bought a new showerhead, old one was ugly, wouldn't rotate, etc...
Anyways, the one I bought is one of those 7" "rainshower" types. Looks great, but the water pressure just isn't there like it was with the old one. I believe the reason the old one had the pressure is because it was only 3 holes, with the "massage" feature. The new one is probably 40-50 holes.
So my question is, is there a way to keep this head and add pressure to it, or is the pressure dependent on the showerhead design?
Thanks in advance

Showerhead question


Look inside the new head, where it would screw onto the shower arm, is there a flow restrictor in it? If so remove it.
