Default Re: Please, help with HEADS and tunning for a Superstar Hyperdrive

Thanks for the reply!

I have read somewhere before that coated (white) are brighter and better for miking, but not as good for a "live acoustic" sound, like my situation (only play in an apartment).

What sound characteristic the heads with rings around them would give me? I remember once playing a DW tom with those heads and they sound just magical!!

What "changes" soundwise I would get fitting a single ply and a double ply on the same tom with an EG1 on the ressonant side, for example?

How do I find out if I prefer coated or clear batter heads, WITHOUT having to purchase both and try them? Drum heads where I live are very expensive!

Thanks for any answer in advance.....
