Default Drum Head Help

My set is a Gretsch Catalina Maple and I am pretty lost and confused on which heads I should get.

My sizes are:
10" x 8" and 12" x 9" toms
14" x 14" and 16" x 16" Floor toms

and I play Rock.



Thanks for the Help

I think what he means is what type of sound are you looking for? For example - open, warm, fat, etc.

Well if u want a warm more focused sound get coated heads...if u want a more open boingy kinda sound get clears....singly ply heads weather they are coated or not will have alot of overtones and good sustain...two plys will not have so many overtones or sustain...and any premuffled heads will have very little overtones and very little sustain....depending on what sound u are looking for there are many head options...not to mention what type of drum the head is going on (bass drum, tom, snare)...so give us more information and we will be glad to help...but ive always liked the open sound of clear heads and the moderate overtones and sustain u get from two ply heads...so i like two ply clear heads...but thats for toms...for the bass drum i like a really muffled thump kinda sound...so i use a very muffled bass head with a ported reso...and for my snare i use a coated two ply like most do....
