What wires would have come on a Gretsch 4160 Round Badge, 42 strand?
so I am intrigued by the Renaissance snare side head.The 42 strands make for a sensitive initial sound thats fairly dry as the weight of the wires stops the vibration of the bottom head more quickly. A Renaissance reso head gave a warmer sound on a steel tama and an acrolite I’ve tried it on without losing any noticeable sensitivity. Might be worth a shot
Can’t really comment as I only spent about ten minutes playing an emperor x coincidentally on that same tama. I thought the response was too dead with that head and I like heavy heads. The renaissance is a pretty subtle difference. It just seemed to warm things up a little, which suits the steel drum and I could see it being good on brass tooso I am intrigued by the Renaissance snare side head.
Do you think it would be overkill with the emperor x??
I have a set of Gretsch 42 strand wires in my cart and before I pull the trigger just want to know about the head.
Thanks again to y’all!
