Re: Remo Ambassador coating wearing off...
I've been flipping around heads, trying other ones too, cheaper ones (Evans and Aquarian are cheaper where i live) fro months, BUT nothing still sounds the same to my ear as a coated Remo Amb or Emp. Much better tone. It is noticeable, but maybe not to an audience or other band member.
I guess if you don't like the coating problem one can always switch to clear but for a slightly different sound.
