Default Emperor X snare

Just put one of these on my 6.5 x 14 snare.
only has but one hour of play but
So far... this head is kickin'

since it is 2 plies of 10mil with a 5mil center dot I figured it would be
dull and lifeless, dry and lacking in articulation...

not at all...in fact my snare is more responsive, crisp - articulate and
less pingy overtone than a standard CS.

This head has a little bark to it making it sound incredible on recordings.

WOW - just wanted to share my experiance - I highly recomend this head.

I'm with ya...
I have a Remo Black X (the black suede version of the Emperor X) on my 14 x 6.5 birch snare and it sounds awesome. Just the right combination of overtones and crack. Rimshots are amazing.

buzz rolls to rim shots its like putting your snare on steroids.

see I should be in marketing.

or here we go:

If you want a thin wimpy sounding snare
use whatever head you want, but if you want a thick beefy
bigger than life snare sound get the emperor X

twice the thickness = twice the beef in your tone.

Emperor X - it's whats for dinner....

Out of curiosity... I'd imagine that this is much less likely to choke when hit hard with rimshots... does the Emperor X give your snare some serious balls compared to before?

Sorry to bring the post back from the dead, but I hate the sound I get out of my PDP FS Series 5x14 snare with a coated ambassador on it. I'm planning on replacing the snare, but I don't have money atm. Would the emperor x be good for a snare this size? The shell is birch.

I can tell you I have been using this head on my birch snare and it does sound amazing! It's worth trying, especially if you can't afford another snare.

I've been using the Emp-X on a couple of snares now, and I love it too. Been back to G2, Emperor, CS, HD Dry, etc, but I keep coming back to the Emp-X. It also helps that it withstands my pounding better than any other mylar head :-)
