I couldn't find any info on the Pork Pie web site. Just that Remo heads are supplied. I'm guessing that since its a single-ply coated head it's an Ambassador. Ditto for the clear snare-side resonant head. My guess is that if Pork Pie wanted a couple thousand Ambassadors with the Pork Pie logo, Remo would be more than happy to comply.

Anyway, I'm going on the assumption that it's an Ambassador. It's been a few years since I bought one. I've been using Evans and Aquarians for a time. I hope that the coating lasts a little longer this time.
That is a 100% genuine Remo USA Ambassador. All US-made Pork Pies ship with Remo USA heads. Remo will honor requests like that if you're buying in bulk. My old favorite drum shop (RIT Drums in Grand Rapids, MI) gets Remo to print their logo (in addition to the regular Remo logo) on all Remo heads they sell.
