Re: Remo Ambassador coating wearing off...
Very dissatisfied customer here as well concerning the coated ambassador. Nothing is more disappointing than installing a fresh head only to see it look like the old one just removed, after only 1 practice. Still sounds great, but looks like its been on a well used house kit for years.
The coating even came off of mine at about the 8 o'clock position from playing crosstick on the snare, where the butt end of the stick contacts the head.
I tried to give Remo another chance, however this last head wore the same as the 2 previous ones. I love the sound of the Ambassador on my Supraphonic, but its gonna be Evans from now on.
Why can't Remo own up to this?
