I am gunna be jamming with some friends, and we are gunna be playing mainly Metal, so I need some Drum Upgrades, including heads. So here are some of my ideas:

Remo Powerstroke 3 Clear OR
Aquarian Super Kick II OR
Aquarian Full Force OR
Evans EMAD OR
Evans EMAD 2

Snare
Remo CS Black Dot Coated OR
Remo Emperor X Coated OR
Evans HD Dry OR
Evans PowerCenter Rev. Dot

Toms
Remo Pinstripe Clear OR
Remo Emperor Clear OR
Evans EC2 Clear

They are just some ideas I had, but please post your thoughts on what heads I should choose, for a regular Rock Kit (22, 12, 13, 16, 14 Snare)

Bass

Aquarian Super Kick II OR Super Kick 1 with a Regulator on the front

Snare
Aquarian Hi Energy or Emperor X

Toms
Clear Aquarian Super 2's with dot, Classic clears on the bottoms.

All the combos you mentioned are ok but this would be my choice....

whats up dead of knight?
i would personally go with the evans emad 2 for the bass, evans g2 coated for batters and evans g1 clear resonates. and for the snare a evans st.
i play heavy music and these have to be the best.
i used to be all about remo but some of the heads have not had long life and the clears have a plasticy sound to them sometimes.
this is all just personal experience though.
hope this helped!

I would choose the Evans Emad2 for the kick, I use a Black X suede which is pretty much an Emperor X and I dig that for the snare. As for the toms I would have to says Ec2's.

I would recommend:

Emad or Emad2 on kick - if you are going to mic the kick EMAD 2, if not EMAD single ply. (its just louder and punchier IMO.

EC2 clears on tom batters

EC2 reverse dot on snare
