60's Slingerland set
 
Hi folks, I'd like to put new heads on my vintage Slingerland Krupa Jazz set to make it more era specific. Any recommendations?

Thank you,
David

Hi David!

I have a beautiful 1967 Slingerland kit with original "era specific" heads! Slingerland's original spec for these heads were 7.5mil, meaning you would need a Remo coated Diplomat. Granted, that's a thin head for most of us! Ludwig has some great heads, which are also 7.5mil, but use a thicker coating. Excellent heads. For all-around playing, I might go with Remo coated Ambassadors, which are the industry standard thickness of 10mil, single ply.

I believe what VM2K is saying is emperors on top and ambassadors on the bottom.

Well except for the power stroke 3, but I am a fan of those.
