Snare Drum - Evans G1 Coated over Evans G1 Clear
I play a 6.5x14 Tama Metalworks steel snare. I'm hit strong but nowhere near enough to break heads with a strike, so I can get away with the one ply batter. And it brings out the cold, bright ring of steel, which I love.

Toms - Evans G2 Coated over Evans G1 Clear (I believe)
G2 Coated heads give me the best of both worlds; two plies gives me volume and attack whereas the coated nature of the head lets my drum sing. I personally hate most clear batter heads, and abhor EC2s. It feels, and sounds, like I'm hitting anything from milk jugs to cardboard boxes when I put them on. My current drumset is a Tama Rockstar, by the way, with 12x9 and 16x16 toms.

Bass Drum - Evans G1 Coated over Aquarian Super Kick II
In this case, I stray from my love of Evans (If Aquarian had an easy to buy coated white bass reso head, I'd probably get it). The Superkick II gives me a powerful punch while eliminating 90% of the higher ring. What's left gets caught in the egg-carton foam I have lining the inside of the bass. The G1 resonant head is thin and tuned lower than the batter, so that the low frequencies resonate from it, again "singing". The bass is 22x18.

Though I'm actually curious to try the Remo Pinstripe heads. I'm getting a Ludwig Centennial kit whenever I get the cash, and a youtube video made them sound absolutely booming with them on!

I am now the proud owner of Mapex Saturn's and I have a different head combo:
Snare = Aquarian Coated Focus X over an Evanx Hazy 300
Toms = Clear Pinstripes ove Evans clear G-Plus
Bass = Stock

Bass: Clear PS3 or Coated Powerstroke Pro over ebony PS3
Toms: Coated Emperors or Clear Pinstripes over Ambassadors. Mainly Pinstripes
Snare: Coated CS reverse Dot over hazy ambassador. Really thinking about trying a coated pinstripe on batter, I've never heard one sound bad.

Toms are Remo coated Ambassador X on the batter. Reso are clear ambassadors. Snare drum head is usually a Remo Emperor smooth white snare drum batter, but I have it temporarily replaced with an Evans coated head until I can buy a new Remo head.
The reso side on the snare is a clear Remo diplomat.

Bass drum batter is usually a Remo powerstroke. But It is also temporarily replaced with an Evans EMAD head. The reso head on that is an unknown brand (it came on a cheapo drum set I bought for my daughter. I plastered it with foam strips and duct tape, and of course a flimsy pillow.

On my toms and snare I use the Remo RemO's.

Tama Imperialstar

All Evans

Snare: Genera Dry, Hazy 300

Toms: Coated G2 batter, Clear G1 reso

Kick: Clear EQ4, stock reso

I also have a Pearl Export snare that I picked up used about a year ago, mainly for practicing rudiments. It's got a Coated Ambassador over Clear Ambassador, but I think I'm gonna try either a coated Emperor or stick the Aquarian Response II that I had on my Tama snare before I got the Genera. The Ambassador is just too bright for my taste.

Default Re: Heads...what's your combo?

Snares: Aquarian TC over Classic Clear Snare Side (LM411), Jack DeJohnette over CCSS (Ludwig Centennial 6.5" x 14", don't have this with me right now)
Bass: Coated Emp w/ felt strip over stock Ludwig coated reso with a muffling ring
Toms: (new) Coated Super-2's over Ambassador Smooth Whites
I hardly use the bass drum, normally I just use my 18" floor as my kick.

Right now:

Snare: Remo Emperor-X / Remo Ambassador Snare Side
Toms: Remo Clear Pinstripe / Remo Ambassador Clear
Kick: Remo Clear Powerstroke 4 / Custom Design Front Head

I generally try new head combinations every time I change my heads, but I'm really liking this setup. Might just keep this for a while.

Default Re: Heads...what's your combo?

Snare, main head used: Coated CS Emperor (Coated Emp w/TOP dot)
Others: Coated Emp, Coated CS.

Snare side: Remo No Collar Ambassador.

Bass drum: Batter, Coated Ambassador. Reso, Smooth White, Ebony, Coted Ambassador. NO pre-muffled heads on any of my bass drums.
My 16x26 has a Coated Heavy Ludwig head on the batter. That particular drum seems to love that head. Takes no effort to get a fantastic sound with that head on that drum.
The other bass drums (18x26, 2-20x26) get the Coated Ambassador.
The 16x28 is awesome with the Coated Ludwig head too.

Toms: Batter, Coated Ambassador. Reso, Coated Ambassador (main) Other: Smooth Wht. Amb, Clear Amb.
