Default Re: Drum heads for hard rock?

On the snare I would go with Remo X14. It is the same thickness as a Emperor head but it is a single ply like an ambassador. It gives a good open sound but it has added ematiness and durability due to the thickness. It as is less ringy than the standard coated Ambassador without being too dry or boxy. I am not a big fan of pre-muffled snare heads as they can sound way different in the crowd than on stage while playing and they can be dry and boxy sounding. You can always add a moon gel to taste for any additional muffling, if needed.
