Default Fiberskyn (ambassador) on both side ?

Hi !

I was wondering how it could sound with Fiberskyn on
reso and batter side for all my drum kit... snare also but
with Hazy Dyplomat snare side...

Thanks for your comments...

Many years ago, I was marketing/sales director for Remo. One of my drumsets is an old 4 pc. Gretsch circa 1958. I tried that combo and found the sound to be almost too mellow with limited sustain. But like anything it depends on the musical setting and the acoustics of the room in which you are playing. As a rule, I don't discount any combination as we all hear things differently.

Hi !

Well, thanks for your answer...

I'm using G2 coated with G1 clear combo
and I will return to the classic G1 coated
with G1 clear combo... The Fiberskyn shure
looks good but I'm not shure enough about
the sound... I like mellow but I want some
"nasty overtone" too...

Thanks !

Philippe

I'm thinking real dead and real expensive. I just put them on my Renowns, with G1's on the reso side and they sound almost identical to G2's over G1's. I like the look but think we these are finished I will go back to G2's. I am still looking for something that doesn't have a hard plastic sound. Maybe it's just me. I've tried plastic tip and wood and get the same sound.

Dad, thanks for your comment... I will stay with Evans for now...
The G1 coated don't sound plastic like the G2 coated but I found
that if I want a bit of attack and a better stick definition with the
way I tune my drums, I need to go G2 coated and yes, live with
the plastic attack sound...

I don't understand plastic attack with g2 coated. What does this mean? Statements like these throw newbies off. If you are tuning your drums at wrinkle then yeah you will get a plastic sound with any drum head. Solve your problem with tuning your drums to the point where you don't get the plastic sound. This will also provide a comfortable surface to play on as well. Personally I use coated Emp's and don't have that problem because I tune them at the spot where the head actually is doing its job.
Sorry, but statements like that cause confusion for some, and they perpetuate more threads like "which is better evans or remo?" and so on. Which we have enough of already.

TRust me I can tune my drums. I'm talking about the sound the stick makes when it hits the drum head. Kind of like a cymbal has a ping, and a wash. These heads are low as the drum size will allow but you can hear a separate, tinny, plastic sound when the stick hits the head. sorry if the noobies are confused but this isn't an Evans/ Remo debate, just a comment on the Fiberskyn heads.

Wow ! I'm sorry for all that confusion... Poor guy, I was only talking about the sound
of the sticks hitting the head, like Gruntersdad told in the previous post... Now for the
drum tuning, sorry again but you don't have any idea of how I tune my drums... For your
infos, I tune in the med high, for jazz sound... nothing close to "wrinkle point"...

Now, the subject of my post was about Fiberskyn sound as reso and batter head combo,
to compare the sound with what I actualy know, the G1 and G2 combo...

Philippe.
