Default 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

Sorry, confused about this part.
"remo coated emperors on top coated ambassadors"
are they two different heads?

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.

Mark

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

Mark, that is my setup too. Learned it from watching this,


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