Default Remo heads

Quick in and out; Diplomats are definitely thinner than Ambassadors? Just double checking.

Man, I used a diplomat hazy on my Chad Smith and sweet sassy molassy, she opened right up! I went with an ambassador to replace it but next time around, diplomates all the way!

Do diplomats have any issues in how long they last?
Being thinner than ambassadors, I've always kind of been weary of buying them...

You guys are talking about Dips as rezo's and not as batters,right?

I just replaced my resonant Diplomats with Ambassadors, and I'm liking the change. Probably going to go with Ambassadors as my next batter as well (currently using Emperors, which are thicker than Ambassadors).
