Default Remo Qustions

I am rebuilding an 18 inch floor tom for a bass drum, and due to funds will be using the new heads that came with it. One is a Renaissance RE and one is a Coated Ambassador. My question is which should I use for the batter and which for the reso? thanks.

RE stands for "renaissance ambassador", which means it's 2 ply, so i'd use that as the batter. FWIW, I use 'em as my snare batters.

I would think RE would stand for "Renaissance Emperor" (which is a two ply head).

Bang on the money as usual H!! http://www.remo.com/portal/products/...e_emperor.html

GD, if it were me I'd try this as the batter and the amb as the reso first. As stated, you can always swap.
