OVERVIEW

Sound fit for an emperor.

Coated Emperor heads are warm and more durable than Remo's Clear Emperors. They're made with two free floating plies of 7mil Mylar film, which gives consistent open warm tones which accounts for their popularity among many of today's studio, pop, R & B, and rock drummers.

I wouldn't use anything else.
Regarding sound quality, this head is pretty much spot on. I primarily play with a small amount of internal dampening on the drum; however, when recording, I will typically go without any dampening. In both cases, this head delivers. I have it on the beater and resonant side, and I use a wooden beater. Every hit is tight, focused, and full of a great "boom" sound that I haven't found with any other head.

In terms of playability, again, this head is pretty much spot on. It has a nice snappy feel with the wooden beater, and it feels better than any other heads I've used.
As a note, I do use a 4" Falam Slam by Remo, but unlike others, I have had absolutely no problems with breakage.

I play with a wooden beater, and I play extremely hard, and I've never broken one of these yet.
Great value as far as I'm concerned.

So just like every other drummer out there I wanted to get my set to sound more John Bonham like. So I went out and first thing was get this head along with a coated Ambassador res. head for my bass. Let me tell you, the sound is AMAZING. It's focused, warm, but somewhat dry, smooth, and just a nice fat punch without sounding too rubbery . Now the bad part is that within three weeks of playing probably an hour or two a day on my kit, it broke. I noticed about week two in that the coating got split in the middle, then a few days later the head just broke completely. Went out and got another and it did the same thing in a month with MUCH more precise tuning to ensure there wasn't any uneven tension. simply unacceptable for the price you pay.

Musical with punch!

Comments about Remo Emperor Coated White Bass Drum Head:

I have used these heads on my Ludwig drums: 26in Kick, 18 & 16in Floor Toms, 14in Mounted & 14in Snare (Supra-Phonic). The secret to getting longevity out of the kick drum head is to put a remo patch on it & it works wonders, it even gets rid of those unwanted overtones. I first started with a hard felt beater then I changed to a wood beater. The head pasted with flying colours!! Oh and I'm playing 3 nights a week & one of the bands I play for is a Led Zeppelin tribute. So I can say these heads can last! Don't bash the drums...stroke them and the heads will last forever!

    Comments about Remo Emperor Coated White Bass Drum Head:

    I replaced my generic/cheap 22" bass drum head with this and it was a major improvement. I use felt instead of other dampening techniques and it sounds great. I like old school drum sound and that's why I chose this drum head.

    Split within a few weeks - sounds good

    By G-Man Drums

    from Fleet, UK

    Comments about Remo Emperor Coated White Bass Drum Head:

    After playing a Remo Powerstroke 3 for about 3 years with no issue, I switched to a coated emperor bass drum batter. The head sounds great, but like the other reviewer the head split within a few weeks. I'm not an overly heavy footed player. This isn't the quality I expect from Remo.Poor value for money.

                Comments about Remo Emperor Coated White Bass Drum Head:

                I bought this head to paint a design on. Ended up with a cool looking painted drum head that dramatically improved the sound of my bass drum from the stock (Tama) head.
