Remo 16″ Clear Ambassador Classic Fit Drum Head
Remo Ambassador is an industry standard in the drum head world with its 10-mil 1-ply construction in either coated or clear options.
Since the time drummers were switching from Calfskin heads to plastic, the Remo Ambassador has been the No.1 drum head choice for drummers Worldwide. If you want the most honest and unsullied response from your drum set, a Remo clear Ambassador head will give you this from the off.
What is a ‘Classic Fit’ Drum Head?
Remo Classic Fit drum heads are designed for vintage drum owners (especially Gretsch) who have drums which are slightly oversized or not perfectly round. Instead of a normal thickness flesh-hoop, the Classic Fit drum heads have a slightly narrower flesh-hoop allowing for a comfortable fit on older shells. Modern drums are manufactured to near-perfect diameters and shape whereas back in the day, shells were made with looser quality control. But that’s the beauty of owning a vintage drum set…
A clear Ambassador drum head will deliver an open, bright, resonant sound with plenty of attack. Obviously not as durable as a 2-ply clear head, so Remo recommend clear Ambassadors for mostly resonant side applications. But despite its simple construction and lighter weight, a clear Ambassador can be safely played by drummers with good technique. If you’re an alehouse basher, forget it, “these are not the heads you’re looking for.”
If you are seeking the truth out of any drum shell you own, Remo Ambassador clear drum heads will tell you everything you need to know – providing you understand how to tune drums. Not for the inexperienced drummer, but a drum head you will grow into when you’re ready to hear every tone your drums are hiding.
