Default Which Heads Should I use

Hi ive been trying to figure out something. i have a 4 piece ludwig drum kit. i rack tom 1 floor snare and bass drum. i can never get my snare drum to make the sound i want its 6.5" by 14" . i want to make it sound as much like bonhams sound as possible and i only use remo heads. would a coated ambassador on top and a clear ambassador on the snare side be good?

See this thread: http://www.drummerworld.com/forums/s...ad.php?t=39342

Bonzo used a coated Emperor over a snare side Diplomat or Ambassador on a Supraphonic. The room, tuning, and sound engineering all undoubtedly had a role in his sound.

Here's a video where Jeff Ocheltree explains how he tuned Bonzo's drums, it may help a bit: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LMqHqADnREY
