Great sensitivity, good tuning range and just dry enough to take the edge off yet open enough to let it cut and ring a little.
I recommend them very highly. I played straightforward Ambassadors for years but I've been converted. Hopefully I can find another one when it comes to changing the snare head.
Yes, I am very intrigued by them now that guys have made me aware of what they are. As I said earlier, it sounds like a head I would like on my "full size" snares, too. By the way, my other snares are a maple 14x5 Taye, and a 14x6.5 Pearl Ian Paice Signature.
