Default Ebonies, Suedes, Smooth Whites, Oh My!

I was looking at Remo heads today, and realized all the different textures/varieties of heads that Remo has. Quite honestly, I have barely have an idea what the difference between Ebony and Black Suede is. Same goes for Smooth White and Suede.

I know there are quite a few Remo enthusiasts here [paging Dr. harryconway, paging Dr. harryconway] and I was hoping you could help me out with this one.

I don’t know either but I can tell you the Black Sued Ambassador we have on my sons Snare is holding up well. It does not seem to be a coating… more an embedded color in the material itself.

Sounds like any ambassador as well.

The smooth whites sound almost like clears, but a little darker w/ fewer overtones. I currently use smooth ambys as resos on my 3003 toms. Dig 'em.

the suede heads are textured, resulting in a different sound texture than the traditional smooth head. The ebony heads are simply black heads and the smooth whites are white.
