Default Best Heads?

I'm looking to change my heads of my 2 toms and my floor tom plus my bass drum (already changed snare head). I'm wondering what are the best heads to chose and im wondering if it also has to do with the style of music you do to what type of heads you get? Im looking to get REMO but i just dont really know what one to use. Thanks!

well it matters on what music your playing, because you might more attack for metal, tones for jazz, etc. What style do you plan on playing?

Hard rock or Metal, Pinstripes or Powerstroke 4s, maybe the Emperors, especially if you are a heavy hitter or don't change heads that often. These will be pretty durable!

I like the ones that fit my drum.

Heads are very personal. theres not many that sound "bad" theres ones that don't fit your taste, but you can almost tune any head to sound decent.
