Re: Warmest Snare Drum head
Remo Renaissance coated emperors. There is no substitute.
I believe those are the marching snare version originally. They took all the ringing out of all three of my snares. In fact, I bought a Pearl 13x3 brass piccolo snare and it sounds killer with a Renaissance Coated Emperor on it. And, it did exactly that--'warmed up' the sound of that little brass snare, just perfect.
Anyway that is MY preference. But if you keep this thread going long enough I'm sure you will get recommended every snare batter head ever made.
