I think the Ambassador Xs are actually 12 mil. The X14 is, fittingly, 14mil. This matches Evans' lineup with their G+/G12 and G14 heads.

If you're worried about durability, I'd try some of those heads too! Unfortunately, Aquarian only makes 7mil and 10mil single ply heads for toms, which is crazy(!), and Remo's 12/14mil models are only publicly available coated and in limited sizes (esp. for the X14[though you might be able to get them in other sizes or different coatings through customer service?]). I'm trying a G14 on a tom pretty soon and I have no doubts about their tone- especially considering how well the X14 is doing on my snare! I'm also trying a graduated set of single ply heads- which means a G1 and Genera Reso on the 10", G12 and G1 on the 12", and G14 and G12 on the 15". I'll be sure to update how that works out when I actually do it...
