  • What's your favorite snare head?

    What's your favorite snare head?
    remember: you’re a wreck, an accident.
    Forget the freak, your just nature.
    Keep the gun oiled, and the temple cleaned **************** snort,
    and blaspheme, let the heads cool, and the engine run.
    Because in the end, everything we do, is just everything we’ve done.

    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.
            OS is kind of like imaginary numbers-- something theoretically useful, but who doesn't acually exist.

            Only in OS's case, instead of generating recursive fractals, it's simply that the mass of **************** which fills him is greater than the mass of a similar, hypothetical mass of **************** at 0 degrees Kelvin.

            I call this phenominon "dark ****************," and while it is useful to explain OS, dark **************** violates a number of laws we know about matter.

              i agree, aquarian heads definately last longer than remo.
