It's all subjective. I usually go with an emporer or ambassador, both coated, over an ambassador. That doesn't mean it will work for you. You have to find what sounds good to you. :)

I use a regular coated Aquarian single ply batter head and a Hi-Performance resonant head. Tuning all depends on what I'm doing.

Aquarian Powerhouse tuned about as tight as I could get it.

I have Evans Hazy 300 on my two main snares right now, with HD Dry on top of one and a J1 Etched on the other.

another drum I have a Coated G2 batter on and the stock res, and my MM snare still has the Attack heads on it.

Hi fellowdrummers I am niew to this forum, and looking forward to sharing drum related info. and vice versa.


Remo coated ambassador for batter.
Clear ambassador snare reso for resonant.
Bob Gatzen suggests tuning the reso to an A and the batter to a C or C#.
Personally I use A and C#.

Top head varies but I usually am pretty consistant with either a hazy 300 or 500 on the reso side!

It used to be Remo White Max with a Falam K on the bottom, but now it's Evans Hybrid with the Hybrid Reso or Falam II on the bottom.

Oh, my bad, wrong genre. :mrgreen:
