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

Coated heads actually are darker by default than clear. If you like a strong attack and more resonance, clear heads are the way to go - I think that given the characteristics you described, clear is the way to go. Single ply heads on the top give you more attack and more resonance but they are considered harder to tune. Double ply gives you a lower natural pitch, and less sustain- however they definitely sound more 'fat'.

DW actually sell those heads separately if you want those. As I recall, they are a single ply head with the coated patch. Those are a unique option, but they're IMO better than pinstripes or EC2s. Your drums will sound magical if you can tune them right :)
