Default Re: Opinions On Using Diplomat Clear As Resonate Head

Based on your reference to the Ludwig Brass piccolo, I would assume you're talking about snare side heads. A general rule of thumb is that a thinner head will be more sensitive (take less force to get it moving) and a thicker head. I recommend 2mil for small ensemble jazz/lighter music, 3mil as a go-to for almost anything and then 5mil for the heaviest playing or those looking for a drier snare sound.

Carlock did. Anton Fig did. Kenny Aronoff did. Join the revolution! Evans Level 360.
