    Default Remo: Ebony VS Clear (Pinstripe And Ambassador)

    Hey,

    I was wondering if anyone can describe what the sound difference would be between an Ebony Pinstripe Batter--Ebony Ambassador Resonant AND a Clear Pinstripe Batter--Clear Ambassador Resonant. I know the Ebonies are depicted as "Darker" but is there any other way to describe it? Thanks for your time.

    The difference is minor ... the smooth whites are definitely a "darker" sound but I really can't say the ebony has a noticeable impact. I think it's more about visual impact ...

    both clear and ebony ambassador heads are single ply 10 mil
    the clear pinstripe is 2 plys of 7 mil Mylar
    the Ebony pinstripe's is a 10 and 5 mil Mylar

    Well there you go ... I've never played Ebony pins, so I was referring to ambs.

    the ambassadors SHOULD theoretically sound the same, the ebony pins will sound warm and fat like my coated Pins but a lil darker, and won't decay as fast


    *edit* I really like my coated pin, clear ambassador combo, nice and fat
