Well, the problem is, they don't come in the variety of weights that the Remos do. You get Diplomats, Ambassadors and Emperors which I've used all of on various kits. Generally, I like the Ambassadors on both sides of the rack toms and an Emperor/Diplomat combo for Floor toms. Now the EC series does feature the etched surface and the EC reverse dot is an AMAZING snare head, if you're looking for a controlled response that doesn't kill the overtones but controls them. I'm still enjoying my Evans heads for now, but I might have to get me some Renaissance heads when I go back into the studio. When I used them on my old Rockstar DX kit, it gave them a much more "expensive" and rich sound that no other heads could do. I know that Rockstars are not really supposed to sound "rich" but that's what I got from them.
Until I land an endorsement deal (if that ever happens), I'll keep experimenting. :)
