Vintage Emperor

By Alex

from Colorado

Comments about Remo Vintage Emperor Coated Drumhead:

The Vintage Emperor has a great, deep, round sound. I had playing on Evans G1 and Aquarian Studio-X before these. I'm a huge fan of the 2-ply coated sound. And these heads provide the huge sound that most coated heads can get.

WOW

By Nick

from Overland Park

Comments about Remo Vintage Emperor Coated Drumhead:

I've been playing for almost 2 years now and I've gone through drum heads like crazy because I just couldn't get the sound I was looking for but when I got these I was blown away. The first thing it made me think of is like the really deep breaking benjamin tom sound. So if you want a deep mid ranged durable drum head without a lot of overtones this is the drum head for you.

not great for small drums

By Ken

from Spokane Wa

Comments about Remo Vintage Emperor Coated Drumhead:

I have a Gretsch Catalina Birch set with 8, 10, 12, 14 inch toms. I love the feel of the heads and the nice beefy tone on the 12 and 14, but the 8 and 10 are a little too choked for my taste. I wish I had tried the Vintage Ambassadors.

Nice Heads

By Alex Watson

from USA

Comments about Remo Vintage Emperor Coated Drumhead:

These heads are great in my opinion because it's all about what you want anyway besides the obvious of just a good head. They procduce a nice deep tone and have great resonance with minimum overtones and sound even better on record. I'd recommend them for any style of music, I use them for rock and metal and am really satisfied with the results. I'd say they're mid-range on a durability scale. I put them on all my toms 8", 10", 12", 13", and 16" on one set and 13", 14", and 16" on my other set and will probably get them again when I need to replace my heads. I also plan on checking out the batter head for the snare since I am so pleased with these.

Vintage Coated Emperors on DW

By Aaron

from Beaverton, OR

Comments about Remo Vintage Emperor Coated Drumhead:

I have had no fewer than the following heads on my DW Collector's Kit (8", 10", 12", 15" toms): Remo Pins, Aquarian Performance II Power Dots, Evans Hydraulics, Evans G1, Evans G2. I think these heads strike that perfect balance I have been looking for: resonance and tone of the shell is allowed to breathe combined with the right amount of overtone control. Evans G2 coated have been my favorites until now, but these are now my preferred heads until something better comes along. (Note: pairing with clear Remo ambassadors for resos) My tom sizes are a bit on the smaller size, compared to typical 12", 13"/14", 16", so I usually try and tune loose (lower) to get that low end tone. My 12" tom is actually set to my right like a floor tom. These heads really allowed me to get that low end sound. Additionally, my tuning skills are probably considered average, so while I can dial in a tone if enough time permits, these heads also compensate for some of my lack of tuning proficiency. Even the initial tuning was something I would have been happy to perform with. I shopped around a lot for heads and considered Evans Black Chromes, but they seemed a bit dead and *thwacky* to me. Granted, this was neither tested on my kit nor on a properly tuned drum, so yes, I realize this is a very qualified statement. For me, I am happy I went with the coated Vintage Emperors. Thanks to Ryan at my local Guitar Center for the great guidance -- a great example of good ol' brick and mortar coming through.
