Why can't you just buy the Evans and be done with it?

Pinstripe.
Dunno why you wouldn't go with evans, though...

Powerstroke 4. That's actually the 2-ply version of the Powerstroke 3. I'm planning on going with a pair of those on my largest tom next time I switch out heads.

There isn't one.

Evans hydraulics have some sort of oil inserted between the two layers. No Remo head does that...not a Pinstripe....not a PS4....none.

The hydraulics are a rare case of "no crossover" or comparative head (at least with Remo). If you want a hydraulic sound, buy a hydraulic head.

And the hydraulic is going a be a very muffled, dry head sound-wise.

Pretty much the hydraulics are just too low for me. I want something that gives a higher pitch and not so swamp monster low-end. i love how durable the hydraulics are. they last forever pretty much! guess i'll go with the powerstroke 4 or an emperor (which is apparently the equivalent of the evans g2)

i'm just doing an odd config with 3 toms with 3 different heads / brands.
