Re: confused about the right heads
My suggestion on the bass would be that if one head is muffled the other should not be. For example, if you have an SK2 or EMAD2 on the batter, the reso should be unmuffled like a standard Ebony Weather King or something. If you use an EQ3 on the reso, then opt for a G2 or Emperor as your batter. Also, acoustic foam works great as an internal muffler maybe 6 to 8 inches by whatever depth your bass drum is. Good luck.
