Default Re: What Heads For Yamaha Musashi 12x6 Snare?

I always assumed Vintage A was a variation of Ambassador and therefore single ply. Sounds like something I would want to try on my 14" snares as well as on the Musashi.

I'm not familiar with it. I will go on Evans site and look it up. Thanks.

Now I have several good suggestions to try. I will try to pare it down to 2 to buy and experiment with. My first inclination was to get the darkest/driest head I could find to compensate for how bright and ringy the snare is. But I think any quality head with a sweet tone should be fine. I can deal with the excess overtones via moongel or a studio ring.
