A Renaissance Emperor changed my opinion

By DONALD SCHULTZ

from Chicago, IL

I put this head on the batter side of a Brady stave snare that I thought sounded like a cardboard box. Needed to have my head examined for buying such a d*mned expensive snare and it sounds like THIS?!?, et cetera It had a "controlled-sound-with-a-power-dot-head" on it when I got it new -- just didn't get it. But once I put the RenEmperor on it, the snare *sang* to me! NOW I get it. The drum sounds like it's worth way more than I paid for it. All fat, Memphis-y, warm, swampy, evil. THAT's how good the Renaissance Emperor head is. Dig it, brothers!

My favorite tom heads!

By JP

from Chicago area, IL

I've tried the Remo Renaissance heads in all weights except for the PowerStroke models, and I can say hands-down that I like the Emperors the best for my toms. I play Gretsch Catalina Club Jazz drums, and they just sing with these heads. I found the lighter weight versions of these (and the stock Evans) harder to get a good tone out of the drums. I highly recommend these heads. I think they make my entry-level kit sound like the high-end Gretsch kits, perhaps better. And, I do know from experience -over 30 years with a wide variety of drums and heads. These are my favorite for my toms. Fyi, for my snare I use a Renaissance Diplomat -excellent!

Overall Great Snare Head

By Andrew Tousi

from Glenview, Illinois

I bought this to replace the heads on my old set. The sound was deep and rich. Perfect for any type of heavy rock or metal. Great quality for the price and the sound is near perfect. Does require a bit of intense tuning to get it sounding good, but once you get the tuning, you wont regret it. Great buy for the money and perfect for any intermediate drummer playing rock or metal

Renaissance are hands-down the best

By Ed Langu

from USA

I use RE on my rack toms and most snares. (And RA on the resonant side of all toms.) Beautiful, full, deep tone without compromising any stick definition. Tuning them may take some practice if you're used to regular coated or clear heads.
