Re: Remo Ambassador coating wearing off...
I do love Remo heads and continue to use their heads on my toms. I use coated ambassadors, ambassador X or clear emperors and currently clear ambassadors (denting to easy with my round tip sticks?) However I just started using the Evans coated reverse dot on my Oak Custom snare and it's coating is pretty durable. It sounds great too. My other snares are still using Remo and I may switch them out as well?
