Default Fiberskyn on Slingerland bass drum, should I???

Hello all,
I have a 1951 14x24 bass drum and was looking at a fiberskyn power stroke 3 Ambassador on the batter and a Fiberskyn power stroke 3 Diplomat on the resonant side, what experience and ideas has anybody got for this one.
Thanks.

I have vintage slingerland and on my on the batter is powerstroke 3 clear, on the reso is fyberskin powerstroke! This combo gives me nice low punch, kick sounds exactly how it should sound.

I've found that the Fiberskyn heads dampen the sound a bit too much for my tastes, but everyone has their preference. I prefer a coated ambassador, myself...

I would use a diplomat for reso , because it increases the high notes , and that's not something you usually want for your bass drum .
for the reso I would use a powerstroke if you want a really clear punch or a ambassador if you want a open sound
