Default Emperors or performance II

Hi, This is my first post, I've read a lot on this site about drum heads, and it's been very helpful. I'm trying to narrow my search to a choice between Remo Emperors ( clear ) for the toms on my Mapex Pro M Kit or Aquarian Performace II. I'm leaning toward the Emperors,but I like the sound of the Aquarians because they are a bit more muffled. I am considering these heads for a live kit that may be mic'd at times but not always. I've tried Evans EC2 and Aquarian Response 2, not quite what I'm looking for. Any suggestions?

Thanks, T

I actually used the performance II heads on my Pro M's for a while. I liked them a lot. If you are looking for that muffled sound you will like them too.

here is a link of a live performance where I used the Pro M's with the Performer II heads on the toms. You can hear the toms clearly around the 1 minute mark.

Good luck finding the right heads. I've been struggling with my snare recently.

EDIT: just remembered, you can also go to www.myspace.com/giovannifuentes
I'm using the same Pro M's with the Performer II heads if you listen to "White Feather" or "Envy"
All the dream theater stuff I'm using my Tama's..

Hi,

I am currently using Remo clear Emperors and play some good size rooms at times. I love the Remo's on my kit. If the drums are tuned right I do not need to muffle the toms at all. The most I had to muffle was one piece of moon gel on the floor tom. I am using a 10" 13" and 16" toms hope that helps, if not don't be shy :-)

They are both great heads IMO. they will give you two toataly different sounds. The aquarians are indestructable just to let you know.
