Default Need help and advice on what drum heads to get for the first time?

I got a Mapex Meridian Birch 5 piece in honey amber. It sounds pretty dope with the stock heads but I think it's time to change the heads. What batter/reso heads should I get? I play all kinds of music, from reggae, to rock, to pop, etc etc. I'm open to any suggestion and advice since this is the first time changing the heads

Start with Remo Ambassadors or Remo Emperors and see how you like it. As reso heads I'd recommend clear Remo Ambassadors.

Second that. I started with Ambassadors for reso heads when I first started playing over 10 years ago, still use them to this day.

Ambassadors are a great middle of the road starting place. Many not only start there, but end there!
