Re: Remo Emperor vs Remo Ambassador Heads
I tuned my bottoms (Clear Ambs) to about the same and the tweek on the tops until the increments between drums are where I like them which comes pretty natural (except on my 13" which is out of round especially towards the bottom, so it needs to be a tad higher). I also just replaced said bottom heads from stocks. 10 year old stocks that came with the kit, the drums sounded so much better after I tossed those xD. Oh noobiness. I've had my kit for 2 years come this November so I haven't had much time to experiment.
Audience and projected sound is one of the things I fear about switching, even though I don't gig too much and have mics available if needs be.
Christopher Walken would be pleased.
