Also, is there a head which is useful for low-volume situations? My friend plays in a world percussion ensemble and he doesn't want the drums to overpower the rest of the ensemble in live situations.
My best recommendation would be the EC Reverse Dot.
As for "low-volume head," a single-ply head would probably work best, being that you don't have to hit them hard at all in order to get the full tonal characteristics to come through.
