Default Bass drum resonant head

I'm looking for a reso head for my 22" bass drum that will give a deep, warm tone with a decent amount of punch. It needs to be all white, preferably coated so that I can go at it with a sharpie and make some design on it. Brand doesn't matter that much, but preferably something from Remo or Evans.
What do you guys think would be a good one for me? Thanks.

Try the Remo - Smooth White Ambassador or Smooth White Emperor - 22" Diameter.

Smooth White: Bright tone, Long sustain.

Smooth White Emperor: Mid tone, Mid sustain.

You can also combine them, experiment with them...

I recommend the Aquarian Regulator, available in black or white.

I think the Ps3 coated or smooth white would be perfect. It will be punchy, deep and not too much sustain.

I really like the Evans EQ1 Resonant head. I put one on the bass drum at church, and it sounds amazing. I am not the only one who noticed the difference. The batter head is an Evan EQ3. Peace and goodwill.
