The ambassador is still the most widely used and recommended coated snare head out there.Its bright but warm tone and excellent response make it the ideal choice for most musical styles.Is it the best? Probably not.I would have to give the number one spot to evans for consistency and innovation.Nevertheless,the ambassador is an excellent head.I have not had a problem with detuning once i perform the cracking procedure(like performing cpr)and continue tuning the head.Once the cracking sounds stop,the head becomes stable in the hoop and is ready to use for many months.Durability wise,it is rated "average" by remo,i think,compared to two-ply,but will hold up without denting to moderately hard hitting.Sounds best wide-open or muffled very little and tuned tightly.
