Default Suggested Drum heads for a Yamaha Rydeen?

I am considering Remo Ebony pinstripes on all of my toms, Remo Powersonic on my Bass, and a Remo Powerstroke 3 on my Snare, what should I use as resonant heads for toms and what should I use for the snare side? Oh Yeah I like my drums to sound Dark.

Clear Ambassadors on toms and an Ambassador snareside on the snare.

If you want your drums to sound dark then those heads will do it. I personally wouldn't pick them, as it's too dark for me and I don't play Remo, but they would work. I'd personally use evans coated EC2's on the toms, EMAD on the bass drum and an HD Dry or something similar on the snare. That will give you a lot of overtone control but won't completely suck the life out of the drums like I know the pinstripe setup would.

I've played Remos and I find that you cannot get a fuller sound from a drum with any other head, I don't want this thread to be a head brand war so stick to what I asked in my first post thnx.

That's fine, Remo is what you like.

Then I stand by what I said, the heads you listed will give you the dark sound that you're after. For resonant heads I would just use clear Ambassadors on the toms and Ambassador snare side on the snare.
