Exactly! I have been playing for thirty one years I never have heard of anyone using a Coated head on the bottom of the snare. I would think that would really choke the sound of the drum. Maybe a hazy head but not a Coated. I would go with a Clear Ambassador or Diplomat you will be fine. Keep working with it you will get the sound you are looking for.
