Re: Remo Ambassador coating wearing off...

However, I've also been considering going with their Modern Vintage series, which replicates the warmer sound of calf skin. Based on your saying Remo is warmer than Aquarian in general, I'll definitely be going with the Modern Vintages, as Aquarian consistantly gets good reviews on their coating lasting a long time.
Aquarian makes a pretty dark/warm sounding head. I haven't tried the MV's but I assume you may get more warmth than what you're looking for!
