Default EC2 vs Performance 2 help please

So yeah eventually when i have the extra cash i will be upgrading all of my heads...for the snare i have decided on the genera dry and for the toms i will be getting g2 clears....but for my floor tom im thinking a g2 would be a little too ringy so i might wanna get an ec2 for it....but right now i have a performance 2 on my floor tom and it is just a tad to dead for my floor tom sound taste...so has anyone used both the ec2's and performance 2's before...how do they compare?...and also how many of you guys use a different head on your floor tom to get a sound with less overtones?...please help

Default Re: EC2 vs Performance 2 help please

I've used both on a DW kit. The PIIs are a lot more muffled than the EC2s. The ECs are brighter sounding and have more sustain. The PIIs have more of a thudy sound.

The EC series heads have an edge control ring attached to the underside of the head. The PIIs have a thin felt ring on the underside.

The EC heads will project better. If your miced up and like the 70s type sound the PIIs might be a good way to go.

My body stunk, but I kept my funk.
