Default Re: Remo Emperor vs Remo Ambassador Heads

I use Coated Ambassador top and bottom of my toms and floor toms. No lack of "beef" from my 16's and 18's. I use it on my 26" bass drums as well. Nice, fat, solid, articulate sound.

I don't like it on the snare for some reason though. Maybe because it just sounds so "even", and I mainly like a snare sound with personality (not perfect) and some dirt.

Don't get me wrong, I do like Emps sometimes, and they do have a nice attack that's different than the Ambassador. For me Emps ring more on the toms than Ambassadors too.
I don't really like a Coated Emp on the bass drum, but I have had nice results with the Smooth White as a batter, and as a reso head.
