Default Re: Need advice on new heads!!! Please Help!!!

I don't think there's anything truly wrong with putting a clear head on a snare, though it is uncommon. Most players use a coated head because it mellows out a few higher frequencies and gives a rough surface in case you're into playing with brushes.

Without knowing anything about your drum, your playing style, or the kinds of places you play your drums I'd suggest just keeping the clear Emperor until you're in need of a new head. It should suit you fine, and you can use the lifespan of this head to do some research into what type of head you might want to try next time.

A SNARE SIDE hazy Ambassador is pretty much the world standard for a bottom snare head, though that IS NOT the same as an Ambassador batter head.
