Is there a reason to why you chose a clear batter head for your snare?

hey mate, ive always liked that green finish that mapex do.
my friend has the same, ive never heard a bad thing about the mapex m series. i bet snuffles barks wildly every time you smack that z bell! dont worry man the cash will come for your upgrades-it will be worth the wait.(not that theres anything wrong with b8's anyway)

How does the clear sound on the snare? I was aways thinking of trying out clear heads or ebony heads on my snare. Heh...

I use a clear batter head on my snare too. Aquarian studio x. There's nothing wrong about using clear. The only reason people think that a coated snare head is a staple is because people have been doing so for so long, and nobody seems to stray from the trend. The heads were coated originally to give jazz players some texture to play their brushes across. Coated heads have a little warmer sound than clear, but that may not be everyone's preference.

Don't look at this post and laugh in the future, because I'm probably switching to a focus x for my batter, which is coated. lol

Well, originally heads were au natural, that is, animal skin. Which naturally had a texture to them. Remo invented the clear head. Like you said coated is still the standard for snare drum batters, and I would say it's because of the warmer sound you get with coated. Snare drums are usually relatively shallow and tuned somewhat higher, so coated heads add more presence to the sound.

Nice kit, but I can't believe you actually crash that Z Custom. And if you don't play super hard rock, how do you find a use for it? That thing is all clang.

Quite right. I didn't mean the first drumheads ever, just the first coated heads. I agree that coated heads give a warmer sound.

sorry, btw, I'm not trying to whore this thread...

clear heads just have a lot of that plastic sound, that a lot of us just don't care for Actually the new trend is textured heads, they don't shed and they sound somewhere in between coated and clear heads. Actually the original Remo heads were coated 2 ply heads, although the plies were a lot thinner than 2ply heads of today. The goal was to make something similar but more durable and consistent than calf--hence the Weatherking heads. Clear heads didn't start appearing until a little later, probably as resonant heads first.

that's cool. I get what you're saying and agree with you. I'm just saying it's a matter of preference, that's all.
