Remo 18" Vintage A Coated, Bater Version, Vintage Ambassador, Constructed of 2-ply 7.5- and 3-mil polyester film, this drumhead changed the art of drumming around the world as the first successful alternative to calf heads.
There's many positive reviews on Vintage A heads. This is another one. I know this head from usage on toms but recently I had opportunity to put it on 18" vintage Ludwig bass drum. It works very well giving that boomy classic jazz bass drum sound. It has to seat and be played on the drum for couple of days to give its full potential. I do not understand why Remo does not want to offer this head in 20" and 22" sizes. Many drummers is looking for vintage characteristic in their bass drum sound definition. Vintage A drum head serves it very well. Warm, mellow sound worth to try if you have 18" bass around.
