I wouldn't use anything else.
Regarding sound quality, this head is pretty much spot on. I primarily play with a small amount of internal dampening on the drum; however, when recording, I will typically go without any dampening. In both cases, this head delivers. I have it on the beater and resonant side, and I use a wooden beater. Every hit is tight, focused, and full of a great "boom" sound that I haven't found with any other head.

In terms of playability, again, this head is pretty much spot on. It has a nice snappy feel with the wooden beater, and it feels better than any other heads I've used.
As a note, I do use a 4" Falam Slam by Remo, but unlike others, I have had absolutely no problems with breakage.

I play with a wooden beater, and I play extremely hard, and I've never broken one of these yet.
Great value as far as I'm concerned.

So just like every other drummer out there I wanted to get my set to sound more John Bonham like. So I went out and first thing was get this head along with a coated Ambassador res. head for my bass. Let me tell you, the sound is AMAZING. It's focused, warm, but somewhat dry, smooth, and just a nice fat punch without sounding too rubbery . Now the bad part is that within three weeks of playing probably an hour or two a day on my kit, it broke. I noticed about week two in that the coating got split in the middle, then a few days later the head just broke completely. Went out and got another and it did the same thing in a month with MUCH more precise tuning to ensure there wasn't any uneven tension. simply unacceptable for the price you pay.

        Comments about Remo Emperor Coated White Bass Drum Head:

        I replaced my generic/cheap 22" bass drum head with this and it was a major improvement. I use felt instead of other dampening techniques and it sounds great. I like old school drum sound and that's why I chose this drum head.

            I bought this head to paint a design on. Ended up with a cool looking painted drum head that dramatically improved the sound of my bass drum from the stock (Tama) head.

            Haven't been able to compare brands but, for a big deep sound on a 26" maple drum, it sounds great! It durable also! Change it every six months!

              GREAT HEAD

              By Levi Morales

              from Virginia Beach, Virginia

              Comments about Remo Emperor Coated White Bass Drum Head:

              I bought this head about a week ago (22in) and I must say, I love it! Tuning is quite simple as it is very forgiving. It has a nice sound, and a great rebound. The coating stays and doesn't wear fast. It works great in funk beats, all the way to double bass heavy metal. Actually it works in just about anything. I completely recommend this product.
