Default Rennaisance head for snare

I recently bought a Remo ambassador rennaisance head. Was trying to warm the drum a bit. Huge fail! Just wondering if anyone has had a good experience with them. Hate to throw it in the trash.

I have one (with matching reso head) on my Custom-Z snare. It works fine.

Which head were you using prior to the Renaissance and which version of the Renaissance did you get? Also, what are the details on the drum?

Tso then pe snare came with a used reference set. I didn't pay attention to the batter, but the reso had a hazy 300 which looked as though factory. Had Tama logo. I put an ambassador rennaisance on and had Dramatic overtones and ringing. The snare is Tama wood, I think maple, not sure. I replaced the old hazy with a new one and new puresound wires. Got Exactly the same sound, so then put an evans genera dry on the batter and bingo almost perfection.

Well, if you're trying to muffle the drum and totally get rid of all overtones, the Genera Dry is certainly the way to go. However, if you want some "character" from your snare, try anything else.

The drum may be a bit dry, but there is plenty of crack. It doesn't sound like a box at all and has no irritating snare buzz. I understand the term resonate and this may be a little less than most prefer, but I'm playing in a small church so the less noise the better, however this drum is loud. Think I found this snare online. Still do not have a specific model name but the one I saw had the same badge and was maple. They go for $200-$250 new so I guess it's a decent drum. Been looking at new snares a lot lately. So many options think I want more than one lol. After listening to many on utube, one seems to capture me the most. The pearl free floating phosphor bronze. Anyone have experience with that drum I would appreciate feed back and thanks for all the other comments.

I had a Genera HD Dry on my 14" Yamaha Steel snare with a Hazy reso head. No matter the tuning or strainer tension, the drum seemed dead.

Changed to coated Ambassador X batter over a clear Diplomat reso. With this combination, the drum would tune through several intervals but it was louder than I wanted at any tuning.

Thought that a Diplomat on top might help, so changed the batter to a Renaissance Diplomat. WOW! The darn thing got LOUDER! It tunes just fine, but almost blasts me off the throne. Might be fine for outdoor gigs, but it's way too much for basement practice.

Maybe there's no such thing as "lively" and "quiet"? ;-)

I use a Renaissance Diplomat for concert / orchestral / symphonic playing, and it's beautiful. Based on its character, I'd say a Renaissance Ambassador would probably suit jazz very, very well, though heavier playing probably wouldn't be facilitated as effectively by that particular head. What kind of music do you play?
