  • Excellent Synthetic Calfskin Head

First, I want to qualify this as being perfect for a single category and not as a universal head. I play drums primarily in small venues with acoustic instruments and brushes or light sticks. While it isn't a thin head, it sounds like one. I've been using one for over three years and it is still like new. There is no powder coating. The roughness is built into the surface and it never goes away like coating does. When I first got it, my first impression was that it was too smooth for brushes. But when I played it side-by-side with another same sized snare drum with an Ambassador coated batter head, I was amazed. The coated head sounded like loud like I was sawing a board in half. With the Renaissance batter head, the "sandy" sound was there without the harshness. I could play delicately or loud, throw in accents or whatever. No matter what type of brushes I used, the Renaissance was perfect. With no coating to catch the tip of the brush wires on, the sound was always smooth. It's sort of like when your coated head had worn down just the right amount but the Renaissance starts out that way and stays that way. When I use my light weight sticks with or without nylon tips, the sound is light and clear and it penetrates. The color is sandy tan and looks vintage which I think is neat. I have Remo coated Ambassador batter heads on my toms and it is the perfect combo. When I play a large venue and I know I will be hitting hard, I take another snare drum with the standard Amabassador coated batter head.
