Default Your Drum Heads?

Which drum heads are you currently using?

on my rack tom, I'm using remo clear emperor batter, and for the resonant I'm using remo coated ambassador.

for the floor tom I'm currently using remo coated emperor batter, and for resonant a remo coated ambassador.

for my snare I'm using an evans power center reverse dot( came with it ) and an evans/tama hazy resonant head.

and for my bass drum I'm using remo powerstroke for both sides.

I use clear Ambassadors top and bottom of the toms, Powerstroke 3 on the kick drum batter with either an Ambassador or a Powerstroke 3 on the front and a coated Ambassador on the snare. I will sometimes use clear powerstroke 3s on the tom batters depending on the situation.

Default Re: Your Drum Heads?

Right now I have...

Controlled Sound black dot (just switched from a Genera Dry)
over a Hazy 300

EC2 clears over G1 clears ( I'm going to be switching to either coated ambassadors or coated G2's soon)

EMAD single ply clear over stock head.

On an old snare I have a horrible Aquarian Texture Coated over an old Ambassador snare side. Neither are great.

Over the last 21 years I have used mostly coated Emperors, but switch it up every now and again; Clear Emperors, Pinstripes, G2's coated and clear.....................................But I think my favorite's are coated Emperors.

All the reso heads are stock ones on my new PDP FS Matte Blue to Black fade. I put a 4" hole in the bass reso head. It sounds really good.

Toms; Clear Emperors.
Snare; CS coated w/black dot.
Bass; Clear Powerstroke3.

Snare is a coated ambassador over a standard 1 ply clear
Rack toms have stock heads
Floor tom has a performance 2 on it over a standard clear reso
And the bass is an Emad with the stock reso ported

I love my bass drum sound...and i love my snare drum too...the toms arent amazing but they sound pretty nice...but im upgrading most of my heads when i have the cash anyway
