Remo Emperor Vintage drumheads give attack, projection, and durability, while still allowing drums to resonate.
The Remo Emperor Vintage is slightly thicker than the regular Emperor. Made with two plies of 7.5mil film, these drumheads maintain a moderate sustain, while being slightly more durable. The Vintage version of the Remo Emperor is also slightly warmer, with more emphasis on the midrange and low-end frequencies. If you want to avoid excessive overtones and the shorter lifespan of 1-ply drumheads, but still allow your drums to resonate well, this is a great option. Great for medium and higher volume styles of music, or for those wanting a little more control while keeping the sustain.
The clear version is slightly brighter and more attacking than the coated Remo Emperor Vintage drumhead.
