hey guys i need some advice on a snare head for my Elx 14x5.5 snare

i have tried, Evans g2, coated and Reverse dots along with Remo Coated Ambassadors.

But im ordering a new batch of heads shortly and i would like to know what is a nice had for my snare. i like a resposnive warm sound similar to a Stevo's snare in Sum 41 any ideas?

I don't have anything valuable to add to the conversation except this time, when you get your snare head... Don't write on it! Please!
The coated looks good on your drum set... but I haven't tried enough diffirent heads to make an educated decision.

I used a Aquarian Texture Coated head on my ELX snare. It's a single ply head, and the coating last for a long time. I like these heads on my snare drums, because they seam alittle thicker than Coated Ambassadors so they control some of the ring, but yet still let the character of the drum be heard.
I also use the Coated Response 2 on my Steel/Aluminum snares. The 2 ply heads help keep the metal drums under control. Hope this helps :)
