Default Remo Smooth White Emperors

I'm a fan of Remo's Emperor heads, and I just found some called Smooth White Emperors. Seems interesting. Anybody ever play these before?

No, but I have played smooth white ambassadors. Very very close to the coated. A bit warmer and a little less sustain. In a live situation you wouldn't be able to tell the difference IMO.
But they look cooler also, so I'd say they're worth a try.

Exactly it's a white film not a coating.

I've used these. Compared to coated (which I have now), they're not as warm. IMO they are like a mellow ebony head. They don't have the character of a clear head either.
