Default What heads are the best?

I want to replace the heads on my old Percussion Plus Drum set and need to know what heads are the best. I play metal and want a deep and loud sound. I narrowed it down to 4.
Toms
Aquarian Performance 2
Evans EC2
Remo Pinstripes
Evans Hydraulic
Snare
Don't Know
Bass
Already have Power Stroke 3 but not sure if I should change it.

Default Re: What heads are the best?

I've been really happy with Evans heads for all those applications. The EC2s are really great for toms, durable but responsive without the ring.

For a really loud crack with some durability, I've really liked the Power Dot Center. I personally have been using the EC Reverse Dot for my main snare for the past two years, and I like it, although some loud/metal drummers on these pages have said they don't care for it. But it is durable and brings out great tone, with less ring than the Power Center.

The Evans EMAD2 is what I've been using for bass. It is 2-ply for durability (a must for us heavy footers), and really punches. If you pair it with a vented front head you'll get a good beater sound and a little less boominess, unless that's what you're looking for.
