Default Time for new heads?

Hi all. I'm pretty new to drumming (Been drumming for a year year) so sorry if I use wrong terms ETC. And if this thread has already been made before but anyways.

I've had my heads for a year (They are the original heads that was on my CB drums" There just CD heads that say remo on them/ or there remo heads that say CD with them, take it either way")
And now that I'm getting into drumming a little more Im gonna most likely upgrade my drums. I was gonna buy a new crash cymbal, but decided heads are much more needed.

Anyways O've had the same drum heads since i got the drums And I was just wondering if I should invest the money and buy new heads, or wait untill they turn to mush before buying some new ones. I play pretty hard and I play around 30-60 minutes each day and some heads have dents in them. (Not huge dents but dents non the least). The batter (Sorry if its not called batter, its either batter or coating I forget) is coming off, ETC.

So anyways sorry for the huge paragraph, but should I get new heads or just keep the ones I got?

Get the new ones right away. Nothing displeases the drum gods more than stock heads. You'll be amazed at the improvement in sound quality.

Now, which heads you decide on are entirely up to you and what your ears want.

Year old stock heads I'd say it's definately time to replace them. I'd actually replace the top and bottom heads, they are both worn out. You'll be amazed at the sound difference once you get the new ones on and tuned.

I actually dont use the bottom heads, because I find that they sound better. But I have gay tastes so that doesnt matter. I will most likely get remo heads since I'm not to sure what other heads sound like and all that.

if you have problems with drums sounding bad with bottom heads on, buy a set of plastic dampening rings. they are called e-rings (evans) or o-rings (remo) and cost a few bucks. you'll find that your sound quality is increased immensely as they get rid of nasty overtones.

and as for the heads themselves, my personal recommendation/preference is:

remo coated emperor on snare batter
remo clear ambassador on snare resonant

remo clear pinstripe on tom batters
remo ebony ambassador on tom resonants

remo ebony ambassador on bass batter
remo coated ambassador on bass resonant

^i know the bass heads sound weird, but i get an incredible sound out of them

I think I have those, there semi white circles. Only bad thing is that I'm also saving up for a camera lens so I'm not to sure what to invest in
