Default Heads for a steal snare?

I have an old (70's) steal snare, CB-700 kit originally, that I'm thinking about using as a second snare for my kit. I'm not sure how the bearing edges are, I think decent. But I am looking to see what recommendations you all might have for batter/reso heads?

For batter heads, Remo coated ambassadors or Evans G1 are good in most situations. If you are looking for a more controlled or muffled sound, Remo Emperor X or Powerstroke, or Evans HD or EC snare should also work.

For resonant heads, try Remo ambassador snare side, or diplomat snare side if you want extra sensitivity; or, the equivalent 300 or 200 snare side by Evans.

You have steal a snare !!!

Ah ! Ah ! Ah !

Seriously the right typo is "steel" and to answer your question, my answer is plain simple Aquarian Focus-X. I have this head since a month or so and god, this head is a blessing for steel snare. I had my doubt at first because I like openess in my drum but geez... this head as just the right mufling to let the drum breath and sing with warm and rich tone. For the reso, I use the Aquarian classic clear snare side. It makes an hell of nice combo.

The best sound I've gotten from my steel snare was from a coated cs dot on top and an ambassador snare side on the bottom.
