      OVERVIEW

      A reproduction of a classic mid-range drumhead from the genre crossover of the 1960's.

      When jazz and crooners subtly passed the reins to rock and roll in the 60's, the Remo Emperor Series Drumhead bore witness and laid down the backbeat. Now the Vintage Emperor® is a reissue of the original Emperor® drumhead that contributed to some of the most distinct and memorable drum sounds in history! Offering a mid-range punch and a pleasant ring, the Emperor is constructed of 2-plies of Clear 7.5-mil polyester films, featuring arm transparent midrange tones with enhanced attack and durability.

          I have been using Evans head since the start of my drumming life. I just wanted to give these heads a try since I could get a good tone of what I wanted from the other products. Once I put these heads on they improved my toms so much. If you are looking for tom heads I recommend using these for the top/bottom

            Ran across these accidentally and am glad I did. I play other brands but these sound best on Bubinga.

              At first, I had a love affair with these heads, they were great. But after just a couple practices, they start to sound like your hitting plastic. No warmth, no body. Don't get me wrong, when you put these heads on, they are great, just don't expect more then a few days of good sound from them.

                Comments about Remo Vintage Emperor Clear Drumhead:

                If you like a regular clear emperor on your toms, you'll love this head. This head has slightly more attack with an enhanced low end. It's just a bit more controlled sounding than the regular emperor, which is great for recording or mic'ing your toms live without any muffling. It sounds just as big and powerful as the regular clear emperor, just a fraction less resonant due to the extra thickness of the head. Really durable and great for getting that rock tom sound with nice attack and rich low end. They're my go to tom head from here on out. Highly recommended!

                  Comments about Remo Vintage Emperor Clear Drumhead:

                  Wow, what a great rock drum head. I usually use regular clear emperors on my toms but wanted to give these a try after hearing some good things. These heads rock! They have just a tad less sustain than a regular clear emp, but more midrange punch and low end with a nice attack. A really sweet resonant tone that's just right for rock, country or other genres where a full powerful tom sound is needed. They sounded rediculous on my DW kit and I will be using these heads as my "go to" tom head from here on out. The perfect balance of attack, tone and sustain. Seriously, if you want a punchy tom sound that's fat and powerful with just the right amount of sustain and tone, get this head. You'll dig it. It's super durable too!
