    Right now, coated Ambassador or a coated Aquarian Studio X. What can I say, I like a bit of ring and response.

      I agree with that the Aquarians sound great. Recently I've been using an Evans Coated Reverse Power dot. It has a good punch w/ just enough ring. Its not as sensative as the Aquarians, but good sound nonetheless.

        Remo Emporer coated

        however, my local shop didn't have any in last week so I bought a Remo Emporer Suede (it sounds the same as the coated)

          I really like the Aquarian satin and also the Texture Coated with the Power Dot on the underneath side (single ply med) . Great heads the satin is comparable to a ambassador but in my mind better. The coating last's a lot longer and they sound better imho
          (don't get me wrong the amb. is a great head I used them for years)

            Depends on the drum...

            On my 5.5"x14" maple I go pure vanilla with a coated ambassador.

            On my 6.5"x14" steel, I use a coated powerstroke to cut down a little on the ringyness of the shell.

            Clear diplomats on the bottoms of both.
