Default Re: Non drummer here picking out heads for my kit

Clear Emperors over Clear Ambassadors is a rock standard. For the kick batter, you could try a Superkick 1, or another standard is the Remo PS3 - it's premuffled so one on the front and one for the batter should be good to go without anything in it. You can read up on this forum on how to port the front head easily, or Aquarian makes a couple pre-ported front heads. Of course Evans makes great stuff too, all totally your call. Any simple coated head should work for your snare, and if you want to replace the snare side head, make sure you get one specifically made for that, they're much thinner than normal batter heads. You sound like you're on the right track already. Feel free to ask any questions.
