Default [HELP] What kind of head should I choose ?!

Hello everybody ! I'm French so excuse my english^^
I play Melodic Death/Black Metal for some years and I've always played on REMO PINSTRIPES but I'm asking me about change my drumheads. But I've a problem, I can't try drumheads around me. So I hope you will help me.
I'm looking for a sound deeper et more "round", I hesitate between EVANS EC2 SST, Evans G2 Clear or Evans ONYX. Whatdo you think of this heads ? Or do you have others ideas ?
Thanks.

I'd go with the G2's they don't muffle like your pinstripes so it'll give you a more open sound. Don't forget to change those bottom heads also. That's also gonna affect your sound.

je ne parle pas francais. Tu parle pas Espanol?

That's all the french I know.

To me there is no such thing as too much sustain. You cannot hear it when playing with a band. Sustain is a big part of the drum's tone. But to each his/her own. I really like clear G2 batter heads on my toms. Peace and goodwill.

I actually play with a full set of the Ebony Pinstripes, I like them a lot compared to the normal pinstripes. On the resonant I'm using Ebony Ambassadors...it's an interesting sound, but tuned up I've really come to enjoy the setup. This is all on my 4 piece metal/rock kit.

I want sustain of course, without any sustain there is no sound and the drums are not "living", but I con't want a long rιsonance, just a kind of big deep and "round" sound with a great attack but not too much (I don't want to ear only a big "clacking").

I think I will take EC2 SST, But I'm afraid that the sound will be too much "dry"

(I hope You've understood me, I certainly use a kind of Franglish language^^)

Nah I use these, and they're actually very open and wet if you tune them right. Go medium/low on the batter side, and medium (or medium/high) on the resonant side. That should be what you're looking for.
