Default Special Bass Drum Heads

Hey everyone,
so i'm upgrading my set and I'm trying to find a certain bass drum head. where can I get those custom heads that bigger drummers have. They are coated and the holes are outlined with something that looks metallic. I believe orange county percussion puts them on their sets. Is there anywhere I can buy just the head?

-Dave

You can buy an Evans EQ3 resonant which comes with the hole already there, you can buy any resonant head and cut the hole with either a hot can or holz/aquarian porting kit, or you can get an adjustable muffling one like the Evans EMAD Resonant or Aquarian Regulator.
Pick one.

I don't think that you can buy these particular heads with the metallic holes already there like the one shown in the picture. I would suggest a coated Remo Powerstroke head with the chrome Remo Holz system. Go to the Remo website and see for yourself. Happy hunting!

A hot can?!! Never thought that before but it seems like it would work, cool.

Yeah, it's an old trick. I used it on my reso. It works quite well because it melts through the head in a perfect circle (assuming your can isn't bent/distorted!) and because the edges are melted, they're a little thicker and it helps prevent ripping. Just remember to wear thick/heat-resistant gloves when heating the can one the stove ;) Don't want any burns on those drumming hands

And some pliers as well. Don't use this procedure over your counter top either. The hole will come out more perfectly because the can is circle as opposed to the Dynamos.

I use a Remo Ambassador Coated as reso, and I just bought a Holz, it is very easy to apply.

Here is mine: (This is what you are going for (look away from the art), right?)
