Default Good heads for Tama Rockstar

At the moment I have remo pinstripes on my tama rockstar, and i like the sound of it, but it could just because I dont know any better.

I figured now I found this site, i'd ask you guys what are some good heads for this kit.

I like rock and punk music such as Karnivool, Butterfly Effect, old Living End, Gyroscope

I assume you're talking about the toms. You could try unmuffled double-plys such as Remo Emperors or Evans G2s.

pinstripes are a good selection for the styles if music you mention ,

I agree with the previous post , to try some twp ply heads that there are not muffle , just for the reason that you can always muffle your heads if you want , but you can unmuffle a pinnstripe .

also you can experiment with others reso heads , for example if you want a warmer sound , you can achieve that with a coated ambassador , or any single plye coated head .
If you want a brighter with less resonance , try a thinner head , like remo diplomats

it really makes a big difference changing the reso head , but I don't know why most people don't take it into consideration ,

I used G2s and Pinstripes when I had my Rockstar kit. G2s were better for warmth and melodic/musical stuff, Pinnies were strong and great for aggressive/loud/fast playing. So you're not crazy, they actually sound good on yours set (depending on tuning).

I used Pinstripes on a set of these for about two years and the drums sounded great!

Anything 2 ply would probably sound good if tuned right. G2's, Emperors, Responce 2's...
Maybe try those Black Suede Emperors... those seem to sound good with just about any kit.
