That would be my guess.
That's the argument I imagine they'd put forward but then you'd think they would choose the best heads to match the kit and the buyer could trust it.
My saturns came with remo emperors/ambassadors and ps3/ps3 on the kick, sounds great.
I remember EricB posted a video of back to back recordings of the different heads and I noticed that the different heads didn't really sound THAT different in the scheme of things, as long as they weren't those cheaper china remos.
