Default What heads for PDP MX series

we have an all-maple kit at our church, the MX series PDP. My pastor is looking at changing the heads on the kit - just the toms though, the kick was changed recently and I bring my own snare. the toms are 10, 12, 14, and 16. Just thinking the batter heads, even though the resos probably need it too.

We have a shield and the kit is mic'd up and I'm not the main drummer, but the main drummer uses like 2 or 3 moon gels on each head. I like more resonance so I leave only 1 on each tom. The main drummer doesn't seem to care what is on there or even think they need changing (stock heads are still on there from 6 years ago and it's played twice a week if not more). They are definitely worn out, there's more dull boing than thud/smack.

I thought maybe clear EC2's or G1's. Not sure though. I definitely like clear heads though.

thanks!

If you want clear and you want Evans, I'd go clear G2's on that kit. I played an MX with Pinstripes on it and it sounded nice and fat, but I would've preferred a little more resonance.

+1 on the G2's. But, if you want to try something from the Aquarian line, clear Super 2 batters are great and quite similar to the G2's. I just ordered all Super 2's with built in studio X rings for my toms. I can't wait to try them out.

When I had my mx I used the ec2 mainly and it sounded good. The g2 would sound good at well though.

How about GPlus/G12 or G14?

AmbassadorX on rack toms, Coated Emperor on 14" tom and Coated Emperor or Coated Vintage Emperor on the 16" floor tom.
