I emphatically agree with every word of this post. That's my big issues with 2 ply heads, the audience tone. Unmiced? Give me a 10 mil clear tom head.

Miced can be anything you want.

2 ply heads, unmiced, don't sound as punchy as a single ply clear head in the audience. They do to the drummer. But not the audience. That's all the reason I need for the single ply.
The best way to do art, is to dispense with good and bad...and just get on with it.
