The Remo Ambassador X (coated) drumhead is the big brother of the Remo Ambassador.
It has the same film (and is also a one-play head and white roughened),
but is 20% thicker than it`s little brother.
This causes more attack and volume. Also the durability and the rebound of the stick are better.
The head is an allrounder, so you can use it in every genre.
All sizes from 8″ to 16″
Prices (14″): – 16,50€ (Germany)
– 16$ (US)
The head gives you a perfect rebound and especially in high tunings it has a great
character and sound.
In comparison to the Ambassador, the Ambassador Xs`coated film lasts longer.
comparable drumheads by Aquarian and Evans seem to have a little bit better durability.
In our opinion the head is still a very good one and can be used in every genre.
We liked the sound very much, because of it`s great attack and warm tones. Also the sustain
and rebound are top. Only the durability could be a little bit better, because in our test
after half an hour of playing the coated film started to detach. (Better as the old Ambassador, but
still not good enough in comparison to other heads)
