The title says it all. I currently have coated Ambassadors on my toms (Ludwig Classic Maple). Coated on top and clear on bottom. I like the sound but do find I have to use some muffling when recording. I used to use Pinstripes but I felt they were a little too thuddy and I didn't care for the pronounced plastic attack sound. I much prefer coated heads and thought maybe I should try either Emperors or G2s. They are very similar but I'm sure there are differences. What would you choose and why? I have no specific brand loyalty. For snares, my two favorite heads are the Remo Controlled Sound and Evans HD Dry. Both are fantastic so the brand doesn't really matter to me.
