Re: 14" Floor Tom Heads
Here's a method that worked for me:
I recently bought a second hand kit and it had coated ambassadors on it. I had to gig it with my rocky band before I had a chance to change the heads, so put O-rings on each of the toms (12, 14, 16 - you can buy them in a set made by Evans) and they sounded much thicker. I was going to change the heads out for emperors, but I like both sounds, so I might keep the ambs and just put on the O-rings for gigs with the rock band. It's a bit like having two sets of heads!
Anyway, just a thought.
