Default A flatter drier sound...

Im looking to replace my heads (batters and reso)..I would like to mess with a flatter and or drier sound.These will be going on a Starclassic Birch/Bubinga. Im really not looking for a a completely muffled dead trash bag sound, however..

Any recommendations?

Coated Emperors are good for that flatter, but not lifeless, sound.

Hey Tbonez,

What are you using for heads right now? A point of reference will definitely help us all in providing our recommendations. Thanks!

I had Evans red 'resonant' heads on a set of Yamaha Cherry Wood recording customs way back in the 80s, and they looked really nice.

Im using G2 coateds over G1s...I've atached a youtube of the sound Im looking for. I know what I have now isnt even close....Thanks for the help! I think it may be my reso that is providing too much "liveliness". Then again Im no tuning master and I've pretty much stuck with the G2/G1 combo for a long, long time.

You could try a G12 or 14 as your reso. Or try an EC series on either side.
