I always give the heads a chance, but I'm also prepared to make a quick change if necessary. When I take my new SupraLite 5x15" on a gig, I will have either changed the heads already, or will bring fresh 15" batter & snare sides with so I can change between sets if needed. Nothing worse than the batter constantly softening/denting as you play.
Im still using the stock Ludwig heads that came on my Supralite. Not dented at all and breaking in nicely. Its like a coated Emperor or something. Are you being a little biased towards Evans for endorsement reasons and not giving the heads a chance??
