Re: Remo user trying Evans for the first time... Thoughts...
I'll try to remember to take some pics tonight, but I got a new Pearl Sensitone Aluminum snare drum last Friday and it came stock with an Ambassador on top and bottom. At that same time, I bought Emperors for the toms on my Ludwig set. I already had a brand new in the box Emperor for the Supra snare.
So, they really have just about the same amount of play time on them (4 days) and the Emperor on the Supra is much more worn than the Ambassador on the new Pearl. It's even more worn than your pic, zambizzi!
Of course, the toms are still pretty good, but I don't hit those much anyway. LOL
