Default Remo Renaissance

I currently own a Remo Renaissance Emperor snare batter head, and I like the sound. However, there are some things I wonder about it.

I have no idea how old the head is, but I can easily assume it's more than a year old, as I'm closing in on the one-year anniversary of owning this kit and all the heads on it. I bought it used.

I like the sound I get when I crank it up really high, and obviously that would do a number on the head after a while, so I'm wondering how thin the renaissance heads are compared to others.

Any help or suggestions pertaining to this would be appreciated.

Default Re: Remo Renaissance

The Renaissance heads have the same film thickness as their standard Weather King namesakes; Diplomats are 7.5 mil, Ambassador are 10 mil, and Emperor are two ply of 7 mil Mylar.

I think the Renaissance series are the best model Remo offers, and if I ever bought another head from them again, it would only be those. I love the tone and they are very durable.
