Default Correct Supraphonic Bonham drum heads

What did Bonzo use on the snare and batter sides of his Supra ?
I have read many different combos and I still have a problem getting that "sound" on my 1970s Supra. I even have the 42 strand snares that were recommended.

Thanks for any help.

Coated Emperor batter
Ambassador Snare Side

You won't get that sound though. Even in the 60's and 70's there was processing. Same room, mics, drum, tuning, cables, mixing board, effects rack/chain, same sticks, being Bonham will get you the sound. Since you can't do any of those, it won't happen.

A big part of Bonham's sound was Bonham himself.

As I understand it, he used a coated Emperor on the batter side and a snare side Ambassador on the snare side.

Hope that helps.

I am doing a Zep tribute show in S. Florida the last part of December and I wanted to get my kit to sound reasonably close to his.

Thanks eveyone for the info.
