the Remo head for me

..has always been. Except for when a drum calls for a different tone. As with everything else. But.. This Remo head (and its coating) is such a beautiful invention and it's the standard drum head I compare all others with. I also know when it's not gonna work. Like for instance, it's lively, it has a lot of resonance when you tune it, it always needs padding if you want the drum to have a controlled sound. It can get thin sounding on a drum that calls for a thicker and controlled snare head.
