Re: Ebony vs. Clear Heads
I bought Ebony Pinstripe for a floor tom a long time ago once. The other tom heads were clear and the snare was coated white. The black coating on that one skin got on the drums sticks, and onto the other drum heads, and onto my cymbals. I hated that.
I recently bought a Ebony suede head where the black color is not a coating. It kind of has a dark gray look.
