      Comments about Remo Black Suede Emperor Batter Drumhead:

      I have a 1966 Pearl President Series trap set that I've gigged with for years (Blues & Country). Yes, the set has seen its better days but I love the darn thing and it's served me well. I had Remo Fiberskins on it and an Ambassador Weahterking on the snare... It was time for refit. Based on the reviews , I replaced the 13" and 16' toms with the Remo Black Suede batter heads... WOW!!! What an improvement. You get a lot of stick action without losing the warmth and punch that I like in my toms...They're ridiculously priced and I think I paid around 12-14 dollars for that fix. I couldn't be happier...

            Comments about Remo Black Suede Emperor Batter Drumhead:

            Absolutely love this head. Looks great, and sounds amazing. I was a little worried that these would be wrong for me, because I kept thinking of these as ebony heads, but they're not. They have a nice warm sound, with (I think ) the right amount of dampening built in, so that I don't need rings anymore. Pick these up and install them, you won't be dissappointed. They great, and sound the same.

              Comments about Remo Black Suede Emperor Batter Drumhead:

              I put this on my Metalworks Snare and got a great r&b pop! The only downside is that it's not a good brush head, so jazz players beware. Besides that, it's awesome!

              Remo hits a home run

              By Jim

              from Alamo, California

              Comments about Remo Black Suede Emperor Batter Drumhead:

              These new Remo Black Suede heads are fantastic. I put Emperors on the batter side and Ambassedor on the resonent side and have found the sound I've been trying to find for years. These heads are brighter than coated heads, but have more warmth of tone than clear heads. They're great for any genre of music you play and the tuning range is fairly broad. I've been experimenting with tunings and I can make my kit sound jazzy or have the deep power of metal. All in all these are great heads and I would recommend them to anyone. Oh and they look awesome on the kit. Love the flat black look and they sound as well as they look. Good job Remo... Just keep making them !!!!
