Default Drum head for a vintage kit

Hey guys, I play a vintage Hayman kit and am in the process of replacing its heads. At the moment I use Acquarian Performance 2s on the toms but decided to change them to coated Ambassadors. Can anyone recommend a bass drum head that would go with these? As you might have guessed, I am going for a classic rock sound (but not too generic). I want something that I can tune to medium pitch, and will resonate. Any advice would be much appreciated!

Coated Powerstroke heads are quite open and resonant on their own. I've got one on my 26" and it works great for the swing band I'm in as well as a Bonham style kick sound for rock when tuned looser. You could always add a felt strip behind for a little extra dampening if you like.

On recommendation from the guy at the drum shop I got a Coated Powerstroke 3 batter head. Going to my rehearsal room this weekend to put it on. Will let you know how it sounds - thanks for the suggestions!
