Default Re: EmporerX snare head?

I tried the emperor X adn here is my .02 on it


The emperor X has lots of sustain that needs to be muffled
the overtones are thick - but once you put a remo ring on
what you get is a thick adn beefy CRACK!

I think the sheer mass of the double 10mil +5mil dot
really activates the snares enhancing that snare wire sound
C-RACK!

You also get a rather stiff feel wich makes the stick bounce really good with this head and combined with the enhanced snare response you actually get a quite sensitive
response for ghost notes etc....

You should definately give this head a try
but for me - I always had to have the ring on it to get rid of the HONKY
sounding overtones but then it was really dry beefy crack and I finally decided
I like a little bit of higher harmnioic overtones so went back to an Evans ST dry
which I highly recomend.
