        So I've been playing drums for about 8 years now, on and off recently since I've been in college. I have tried almost every head on the market and I just really have gotten the best sound out of my toms with these Remos. I started playing on a Tama Stagestar kit when I was 10 or 11, made of poplar wood, not great sounding but I was just starting out. I was a huge RUSH fan and Neil was my main influence, he used DW drums, Sabian cymbals and Remo drumheads... Needless to say I couldn't afford DW drums nor was I experienced enough to really warrant that kind of investment of money into a kit. However, I could afford Sabian cymbals and Remo heads; I bought myself some Remo Clear Ambassadors and with the poplar wood they sounded, well, not much different than the stock heads. They, like the stock heads, produced an overtone that wasn't easy on the ears. I then decided to get something that would kill those overtones and so I bought Aquarian Performance II heads, not only did they have a ring built in to dampen overtones but they were two ply which really made them last (as a kid I played hard and my drums were really angled towards my and thus the impact of the sticks kind of cut into the heads and dented them). After buying more add on drums and roto toms and everything I could so that I could be as much like Neil as possible I figured that it was time to upgrade my kit. It got to the point where in my attempt to kill overtones I just ended up having drums that sounded like you were hitting a pillow; poplar just doesn't resonate very well at all. So after about 4 years I bought a Gretsch Catalina Ash Series kit. The stock heads were clear single-ply Gretsch heads. I threw some Aquarian Studio rings on them, as they had a little overtone and they sung beautifully; they were crisp and bright and had very good resonance (ash wood resonates at very high frequencies, higher than maple; not sure about birch) and just sounded an entire league above my starter Tama kit. I put Remo Clear Ambassadors on that kit and never changed them for the three years I played that kit (they never broke on me either). Just last year I bought a Mapex Orion Classic Series kit, this was and still is my top of the line kit that I record with and play most. I wanted to try something different and so I equipped it with Evans G2 coated (I always like the look of coated heads and wanted to see what 2 ply would sound like on maple as opposed to Ash and Poplar). The kit did sound good, I thought though, for how much I paid, that it should sound better. Last time I was home I decided to swap the Remo Clear Ambassadors from my Gretsch with the Evans G2 Coated on my Mapex. OH-MY-GOODNESS!!! The Mapex set just escalated to a whole new level of sound!!!! It was the best sounding kit I've ever heard! The drums were boomy and had such presence, they were warm and crisp and bright at the same time and they resonated and just sounded absolutely fantastic!!! Still, as with every kit I've ever played there is always going to be a little overtone; I decided that I didn't want to risk killing the bright full resonance of the drums with a ring so I got some moon-gels and threw them on the drums and they let the drums just sing the sweetest tone ever! (Needless to say the G2 coated didn't sound so good on the Grestch) ... here's the kicker, I played for about two weeks when my 12" Remo head cracked, I was bummed but remembered that I had played those heads for about 4 years by the time it cracked. I went to the store to by brand new heads for all the drums on my Mapex kit but they didn't have all the diameters I needed so I bought Evans G1 hoping to get a similar sound. Don't get me wrong, they sound good, but they're ridiculously difficult to tune and they don't resonate as long and aren't as bright, they're just a step below the Remo Ambassadors. When I get the chance you can bet I'll be putting the Remo clear ambassadors back on my Mapex set because, after 8 years, they're just the best sounding heads I've played.

                    Experienced drummers know that Remo set the standard for all heads with the Ambassador. Sure, there are many quality heads on the market with may specialized forms. for my money, this is the most versatile and durable.

                    I use coated on batter side and clear for resonant side. I play a combination of jazz, rock, blues and broadly defined Americana. Need less resonance? Apply a little tape moongel, or studio rings. Otherwise, the tuning range is incredible and beautiful. Not only is it worth the money, it's a downright bargain!

                    So I've been playing drums for about 8 years now, on and off recently since I've been in college.

                            Not all drummers are going to agree on the same equipment to use. If you know drums you want to use Ambassadors on bottom. It's that simple. I have a Tama kit with 8,10,12,13,16 toms-14 snare and 22 bass. I use clear Amabassadors on the bottoms (with a hazy on snare) and Powerstroke 3 clear on Batters(coated on snare) with a Powerstroke 3 Pro coated on Bass with Clear Bass Reso. My drums sound great no matter what venue. They sound very open and have plenty of room to breath in the sound mix. Remo makes a great head no matter what you are looking for. If you are having problems with the right head set up, just try Ambassadors. I have never broken a Ambassador head when used on the Top and I have played heavy metal and rock for over 20 yrs. If you are breaking them you need a lesson in stick control and grip.

                            these and evans g1s- single ply 10mil heads- are all i need. batter and reso. sound men and engineers grin when they here my drums. "what's your secret?" they ask. the secret is i have no secret. and no gel, tape, peanuts, you name it. single ply heads top and bottom, properly tuned on good drums. lively, tons of sustain, pure tone, durability, everything a drummer could ask for. some drummers like their drums to sound like tupperware- i don't. if you want those things to sing, clear ambassadors or evans g1s are the ticket. i've tried almost every head on the planet. these are what i use. some drums will like diplomats on the reso side. i love these things.
                            yup, it's a head alright.
                            very durable. if i stab it, i could put a hole in it. i've never broken one. yes, i play loud (when the need arises). real loud. don't stab your heads, and they don't break.
                            very reasonably priced. very durable.

                            this didnt last at all! but put it on the other side where you dont hit and trust me it will sound amazing! I put these on the bottom side with pinstrips on the batter side and WOW! it sounds just like a studio drum set even though I have a cheap drum set. It sounds like a tama now!
