Default Bass drum head recommended

I'm looking into upgrading my 22" Pearl Masters Custom maple 4ply and 4ply re-rings bass drum head. I want a bass head that is warm and has lots of low end and also is able to resonate forever. I never muffle my heads because I like my drums to sing. Just wondering what anyone would recommend?

For the warm sound, go for something coated, and to get it to resonate then don't get something too thick, but also not too thin.
Get a head that's medium weight, one ply.
Take a look at this:

or this:

The first one is Aquarian, the second is Remo.

Thanks for all the great info! I have never tried Aquarian heads before but I may have to go try one out first. Thanks again.

That is a great head. I don't own one but I have heard enough of them to know they are great. Are you using the same for the reso?

For what you're looking for I would recommend Evans E-mad. I use em'. They're warm, deep, and punchy without a hollow sound. As a compliment to their sound I find Evans hydraulics on the toms work best for me. Ain't no better than that Emad, man!

Default Who needs that much velcro?

Why would anyone need that much velcro? These guys sell it by the roll http://www.liangdianup.com/miscellaneous_1.htm and is
hook and look and velcro the same thing?

i use an aquarian super kick 1 with a regulator front, the pair give a deep, warm thud without using a volume killing pillow, but they do not ring, dont you have a hard time miking your bass drum if it rings wide open, even now when sound men see my empty kick drum they always ask if i got a pillow for it, that is till they hear it, then their like, oh, ok
