Ambassador X, Emperor or Vintage Emperor in clear or coated over a Diplomat for a sensitive response with a lot of resonance but quick decay and/or little sustain. In fact I personally am going to try a Diplomat setup with Vintage Emperors as batters asap. I can't wait to hear my 16" FT with that setup! Loud, sensitive, deep and a quick punch is what I have in my mind and I'm sure with Remo heads I will achieve that easily as they are fantastic heads! Can't go wrong with Remo, ever.
