Default Head Coating Durability

Which head has the coating texture that lasts the longest for brushes? I currently have the Aquarian Jack Dejohnette head on my snare which sounds ok to me and it has held its coating and still sounds good after about 6 months. My schools snare got a new g1 head in december and 2 weeks later had lost all of the texture and you can't even hear the brushes anymore. I saw that the remo black suede heade has that wierd finish so that it always has a good texture for brushes. However I really didn't like the sound of the head much. Anyone else know any other heads with the same coating as the black suede, preferably single ply?

I do not know about the "remo black suede," or the "Jack Dejohnette" head. However, I have been using the Aquarian Modern Vintage heads (yellowish color) for a few years now as batters on all my toms and snares. These heads are hard to find in stock when you walk into the stores, but they are obtainable through mail order.

The coating does wear out eventually in the center where it is hit with stick marks, but around the sides away from the center it still has the friction needed for brushes. These heads, I have found, stand up longer and stronger than any other heads I have tried, as well as having a great sound.

I have tried the standard remo & evens heads and found their coatings to wear much faster. I also tried the remo fiberskyn. As you may know they have a great sound, but they do not last too long at all, their contact paper finish bubbles and flakes off after a short amount of use.
