I use Remo Emperor Clears on my batter and Remo Ambassador coated as my Resos, they sound very warm and punchy live but Im not to sure about Studio recordings mate.

If warm and punchy is what you're after, then your best option is this:

COATED Remo Emperors on the batters with clear Remo Ambassadors on the resos.

Case closed.

I'd go for either coated Emperor over Ambassador or coated G2 over G1 depending on which brand you prefer.

If you're wanting something really warm I'd suggest Renaissance Ambassador or Evans Strata top and bottom. I just recently put Strata top and bottom on my toms and I love the warm, clear tone they give.
