Default Which head will make BOB Fatter?

The Pork Pie BOB I just got came with a Remo EmporerX. Based on the ebay pics, I assumed it was a CS, but it's an EmporerX. I tried tuning it up over lunch, but you have to get it pretty tight to get away from the "TOOOONG" tom-ish tone associate with so thick a head. Once it's that tight, though, it's not very fat. Thus, the search for a new head.

1) Coated Ambassador
2) Coated CS
3) Coated Emporer.

Looking for fat and wet, but still with a good rimshot crack.

Which head?

Thanks!

Check out the vintage A as well. Its what I have on my brass Sensitone now. I really like the coated CS, but I like it best tuned a bit higher.

How about a remo powerstroke 3 or 4? Kind of a thick head with a built in ring. Should tune down quite well, as if applying bass drum tuning principles to the snare drum.

Well, I may end up keeping this head after all. I played the drum last night for my weekly 2-hour set @ a 24/7 prayer/worship house and it sounded absolutely phenomenal mic'd up. The snare sound I had in my head was Carter Beauford's "Ants Marching" from Under the Table and Dreaming. This drum mimics that sound exactly. I'm so stoked! Thanks for all the help guys!

If you want a fat sound get an Evans G2 coated tom head. I have one on my 71/2 inch steambent snare

I really love the sound I get from my coated Powerstroke 3s on my bronze snares. Good crack without all the messy overtones. I don't tune them very high, and they sound great. Plus they look cool. :)

Evans HD Dry if you want a fat and dry sound. I was trying out numerous heads for my Panther and found this one to be the best and getting a fat dry sound.
