Default Re: Elvin Jones

this is my first reply on here been watching the forum for quite a while and just decided to join. I'm doing a lecture on Elvin Jones, I was wondering if anyone knew what heads he used. I know he used coated ambassadors snare and toms any idea what the bass drum head is maybe ambassador? and what are the reso heads, diplomats/ambassadors?
Also does any one have any concepts that Elvin played with i.e one I picked up was that he would play a phrase on his bass drum and fill in all the triplet gaps with his left hand while playing time.
