An extremely bright and open drumhead – the Remo Diplomat Coated is one of the thinner batter heads available, and will give excellent resonance and sustain. These drumheads are great as batter tom heads to really hear your drums ring out.
Remo Diplomat Coated drumheads are made with a single ply of coated 7.5mil film. The very thin single ply means these heads are a great option for bright and full sounding toms that will ring out nicely. Compared to the Clear version, Coated Diplomat drumheads are slightly warmer and have a less attack, meaning they will blend better with other instruments. These drumheads are extremely responsive to even the most sensitive touches, making them great for lower or medium volume situations where every detail can be heard.
Remo Diplomat Coated drumheads will allow your high toms to sing, and will make your floor toms growl. On snare drums they will give you a bright and open sound, with a good amount of sustain and overtones to give character to each stroke. To reign in the sustain and overtones, you can add Moongels or other dampening. The coating is responsive to brushes, making this a good choice for sensitive brush work as well as with drumsticks.
The Coated Remo Diplomat is also a good option as a resonant tom drumhead –these pair well with any type of thick or thin batter tom head. They will give you a nice sustain, with a slightly warmer sound than a clear resonant drumhead.
