After 37 years of professional drumming, there is one head that consistently delivers the goods every time. I use Emperors for batters and Ambassadors for resonant heads. With all heads, tuning is key. With Emperors, the difficulty is greatly reduced. Tune up for jazz, tune lower for rock, intermediate for country. Simple!!! These heads last and last. They don't break like pinstripes or other lesser quality heads. If you can't make these heads work for your sound then you aren't using them correctly. Look for tuning instruction on youtube. The coated Emperors bring an additional lite dampening to the mids. Remember, additional dampening such as tape, gells, rags, etc... are unnecessary if you work to get the right relationship between the top and bottom heads. Experiment with the top head tuned higher than the bottom then try the reverse. Try different combinations until you get what you want out of the drum. If you put in the time once, you will forever know what works for your specific drum. You can then make minor adjustments for different settings. The point is that Emperor heads are great for this kind of experimental tuning. They are very forgiving and will give your drums a true sound associated with your drum and the woods used to make them.

I have gone from single-ply heads to the slightly thinner Remo Pinstripe, and i am 100% satisfied with the Emporer for my snare. You can just feel the thickness of it when u hit the drum its incredible. And despite what the "experts" say i think that this is a suprisingly sensitive head. My ghost notes not only show up, but seem somewhat enhanced by this awesome head. I will never put another head on my snare besides Emporers.

      Comments about Remo Emperor Coated Drum Head:

      The coated emperor line of heads is one of the best heads i've played with to date. Deciding to switch from Evans to Remos, I have been highly impressed with the quality of sound and the ease of tuning these bad boys up. They seated great and have held their tone magnificently. Having no idea which line to go with, I looked at what some of my favorite drummers were using, and sure enough Chad Smith, Dave Grohl,Ilan Rubin and many others all chose emperors.

      Comments about Remo Emperor Coated Drum Head:

      I've been on a drumhead odyssey the past two years, trying all brands & types of heads. I usually use Ambassadors on my snares. Emperors seem a bit too "hard" & have the feel of a countertop. However, playing in a somewhat funkier band, the Emperor is giving me a tighter, more articulate sound for extra fast single & double stroke rolls. They can help a mushy snare sound more articulate.

        Comments about Remo Emperor Coated Drum Head:

        Anyone who's ever tried to tune an 8" rack tom will appreciate this head. I had removed my 8" tom from my kit because of the difficulty tuning it. Decided to give it one more chance using Remo Emporer coated and I'm glad I did. I had it tuned to my satisfaction in five min. You'll need to replace the resonate head as well...What a differance. Try this before you discard that 8"er.

        Comments about Remo Emperor Coated Drum Head:

        These drumheads are great. I put these as batter heads on a cheap TKO set and when tuned right, they make my cheap drums sound awesome. On my 12" I have it moderately high, giving that drum a more articulate sound. On my 13", I have it tuned lower so that it sounds like a floor tom. The 16" also sounds great, and keeps up with the precision of the other heads. If you can, I highly recommend these as batter heads. Maybe someday I'll put Ambassadors at the bottom and get an even better sound...

        Comments about Remo Emperor Coated Drum Head:

        These heads are great for a warmer tone. The feature I like best is that like the ambassadors they are coated smooth white heads. So, if you'd like to try the tone between coated and clear, get the smooth whites. This gives them a punchier hit than the coated clears and they're two ply so they're built to last. That being said their main drawback is that they're shell specific. I first put them on a set of beginner veneer shells and it sounded like slapping paper bags. When I put them on maple shells they gave them the warm punchy tones that sounds fantastic when tuned up. This makes them a head for those who know how to tune properly. Those looking for something to transform their set look to something with built in muffling features. For the rest, tune them up right and they're awesome!

        Its a good head but...

        By John Harvey-WJikt

        from San Diego, California

        Comments about Remo Emperor Coated Drum Head:

        the coating comes off too fast.. and it has a wild over tone after the coating comes off.. im working with a studio drummer and he has just a plain tama 14/5.5 snare drum and i though this head would be great for this drum.. it is but like i said, when the coating comes off the over tone goes up.. my advice would be to only purchase this head if you have a ludwig superphoinc snare drum.. other than that do not purchase this head..
