Default Re: Remo Emperor vs Remo Ambassador Heads

Yup, Bo is right on "d-money", lol.

Audible differences will be that the emperor will yield more attack but less resonance, the ambassador will be opposite of that.

If you like your toms wide open or your snare with lots of ring, get the Ambassador. You can always dampen with moon gel if necessary. On floor toms or deep snares I usually will use a 2 ply equivalent of Emperors because of the extra attack. You'll know what I'm talking about. If a floor tom has a really wimpy one ply head it will sound open but lack the guts it should have. If you are looking for a fat, huge tom sound stray away from 1-ply heads (ambassadors).
