Default Looking for info about Drum Workshop heads

I would like to know the thickness of the clear DW batter heads made by Remo. I can't find specs anywhere. Also, what heads by Remo and Evans would be the equal to them? How do Evans EC2 SST's compare to them in regards to sound? Thanks!

aren't they clear ambassadors with a white ring around them?

An email to customer service at DW should do the trick

All dw heads are single ply. I recently switched over to evans onyx and they sound awesome on dw collectors. I know the factory recommends a single ply head by remo but its all about personnal taste experiment.

I know I've said this on other threads...
Buy I've tried other heads but still think the stockers sound the best and keep coming back to them.

Yup.

They are just clear ambassadors with a standard white coating, only the coating is in a ring instead of over the whole drum.

Copied from the DW website:
DW drumheads:
DW drumheads are a special design made exclusively for DW by Remo. They have pressed counter-hoops and a sharp angle around the bearing edge. This combination of factors allows the head to sit better on the bearing edge and produces a very resonate and clear tone. DW heads can be special ordered through your local authorized DW dealer

This is the main reason that when people re-head their DW kits with regular Remo heads of the same type, they get a different sound from their drums. Most of the time it's not an improvement. I don't own DW drums, but I've heard this several times from very reliable sources.
