        I have used the same heads as snare batters that Im sure most people have used. The coated ambs, genera dry (which is my other fav) but this emperor x is just top notch. VERY thick and durable head that seems to deepen the snare crack and help get that fat overall snare tone. I partnered this head with an amb hazy and finally found my snare tone. Immediately I switched nearly all of my snares over to emperor x. Its remo you really cant go wrong and if you know how to properly tune a snare then this will be the icing on the cake. This will not make a really bad snare sound amazing but it will make a good snare sound even better in my opinion. Also seems like it will last a good deal of time. One of the thickest heads I have used on my snare. Check these out if you are in the market for a new snare batter. If these are good enough for dave grohl and taylor hawkins then its most certainly good enough for me!

        I bought this head on a whim and against my better judgement because I have not used Remo on a consistent basis in many years. After experimenting with Evans and most recently Aquarian, I feel as though Remo is just not up to par with their competition. This head is no different. I needed a durable head b/c I play very hard and a guy at the store recommended this head. Is it durable? Yes. But nothing else about it stands out. Most notably it's very sluggish. By that I mean it doesn't respond to tight tuning like an Aquarian Hi-Energy or even an Evans Power Center. It also has nasty overtones. I haven't had to use any form of dampening on a snare head in a long time - until now. This head needs a moongel or an overtone ring to sound good, which I don't care for. Overall, its okay, but there are much better heads out there. So unless it comes in a pre-package deal, try something else.

          Comments about Remo Emperor X Coated Batter:

          I have a DW 6.5 x 14 brass snare. I was experimenting with heads, trying to get that "poppy crack" and meaty punch out of it for a powerful rock snare sound in a miked up situation, no muffling, without too much of that brassy "ring". This head was PERFECT. I tried a CSX, coated emperor, coated X14, Evans G2...nothing worked as well as the Emperor X. It just has that thicker sound and feel to it but still allows the drum to pop and open up with just the right amout of resonance. I'm not sure it would be great for all shell material types, especiall some wooden snares, but if you have a metal drum with some robust ring (think brass), bite and tone (in a good way), this head tames it down somewhat, but allows the volume and coolness of the shell sound to pop through. Awesome head for my situation, and it's durable as heck.

                This is my second emperor x head on my nickel over brass snare, got many compliments of the sound with my original emperor x extremely durable if you want a head you can hit as hard as you want and still have good sound this is it my last head lasted 7 years and i changed it for a better tone since the head was worn for being played that long needless to say i had trouble taking a razor blade and cutting through the old head awesome for zeppelin

                        This head is great all around! I'm a heavy hitter and I always broke heads in about 3 months, I've had two of these in the past three years. Even after a year and a half they still sound good, change it out for a new and it will sound better of course but nothing to complain about. My drums sit in the cold over winter and that doesn't even stop this thing, it holds up to everything! I've tried Evan, Aqurian, and the regular emperors, nothing stands up to punishment like these. I've tried stabbing the head with a stick and it didn't even dent it. I've been moving more towards Evens head with my toms but I'm afraid to try anything else on the snare. I usually crank my snare up super tight and it handles that well, also sounds great at lower tunings as well. Simply put you can't go wrong with this head. It's coated so works well with jazz brushes as well. I play them on a 12x7 Mapex maple snare and nothing pops like these heads!

                        Comments about Remo Emperor X Coated Batter:

                        This drum head definitely sounds best with steel shell drums. It is also better if you have some good strong sturdy hoops on your drum. It helps to hold the drum's tune longer. I did notice that it gets kind of marked up by drum sticks. When you strike the drum (depending on what kind of sticks you use) it tends to leave little black or brown marks on the head. Then again what drum head doesn't do that. So overall very good quality sound and it is quite loud. It also sounds great with the snares off.

                            I use this head on a 14x6.5 Black Nickel Brass snare with 3.0 mm DW hoops and sounds really good on that drum. I think this is a great head for bigger snare drums with strong hoops, the head is very thick so it does need a bit more tension to get it tuned. I dont like it on wood snare drums that much,it kills the sound on smaller snares.If you hit hard and are wearing out the Remo CS heads too fast I would use this head, otherwise a less thick head might be better like the Ambassabor or CS X heads.
