Yes, just not likely to turn up in a retail store. Just ordered some last year, no biggie.

I can only find ambassador weight, no diplomats.

I did a special order from Remo years ago for 16" Diplomat snare side. I ordered two. One for then and one for after that.

I called my local music shop and they miraculously have a 16" snare side. The staff, a good guy I got my 50's WFL from, said he thought it would sit on the shelf forever. haha! Couple more snares coming up soon.

Interesting - what were your thoughts?
I assume this was for me.

I got it to complete an old 12x16 Leedy Box-lug field drum with gut snares and a Calf batter mounted on a metal flesh hoop. We use it when "loud" isn't loud enough. Extremely resonant and sensitive, it sometimes requires a handkerchief laid upon the batter to cut the ring.
