Default Re: Jazz Heads?

The main thing that you want in a jazz snare is sensitivity.
Most drummers obtain that by using a tightly tuned 7 to 10 mil single ply coated head.
Single ply for response when attacked lightly, and coating for warmth and texture when using brushes.
Any head that meets the above specs will be a shoe-in.
