Certainly agreed. EvansSpecialist is a valuable member of this forum, though I have had my disagreements with Evans in the past- he's certainly not in it only for advertising.

Anyways, I think the statements about what thickness offers the most resonance is somewhat disregarding the force applied. As has been hinted at, a thicker head offers generally more resonance, but requires more force to 'activate'- whereas a thinner head at a lower volume will generally open up easier and offer a better quality of tone at that volume as well. I already recommend coated heads, but the suggestion of punching your own holes might also work.

You could also check out KickPort's new FX Series, which are 1" and 2" ports designed for use with both toms and bass drums. I'd get some of those sooner than later... can't see them being very popular.
Check out my Youtube channel!
