Default Re: Best heads for a gretsch usa custom?

One other thing I have found I really like on my Gretsch kit is that I prefer coated Permatones/Ambassadors/G1s on the resonant sides of the toms. The toms sound warmer and the ring is more in control over the clear resonants.

Bill Stevenson makes a good suggestion of the J1 etched heads for lower volume music. I really like these heads especially for brushes and on my Jazz gigs.
