I was the same, but with Evans. I only went to Remo to get the CS Black Dot that Evans doesn't have an equivalent to.
I've been a hydraulic player since the 80's and have always loved those, but the CS series is king on my kit of late.
I've never owned an Evans head, though I've played them on backline kits and studio house-kits. I have no complaints about Evans. I'm just a lifelong Remo lover.
It's the crown, man. When I look down, I need to see the Remo crown.
