Default Attack or Remo?

I was wondering which brand would be better for a more "Metal" sound on my kit (i.e. Gene Hoglan, Bobby Jarzombek, Flo Mounier)?

And which heads from each brand for snare, toms, and kicks?

personally i'm a big advocate of Attack having used them exclusively since 1992. go to their website and check out what they have and see what you think will work best for the sound you're looking for.

Hmmm... I've heard that Attack heads are kind of dead soundind, and for my music, Metal, i think that's good?

Heads really don't matter allot. Just make sure you don't have those overtones. I use remo ebony ambassador pinstripes on my metal kit and they sound perfect with the right tuning. I can't tell you about attack because I haven't used them. I just put moongel on mines and it sounds super metal.

Ah! the eternal question of the heads

Now I'm using remo in my drums Emperors Over Ambassadors on Toms. Ambassador Over Ambassador Snare side And P4 over P3 reso...

I like it, I think the Bass Drum got a huge Low End with those heads BUT before Remo I used to use Evans G2 on the toms and Power Center Reverse Dot in Snare and I think I prefer them Over remos.

For the classic metal sound, wel, those are Remo Pinstripes on the batters of the toms.

I got my Sonor Five Star kit which was played by Thomas Lang and Steve Smith with 2 ply medium clear Attack heads on the kit. The kits just sings. I have pinstripes on the Signature kit and they are getting Attack 2 ply clear next time round.

Attack heads are not dead, not by a long shot. Best heads I have ever played. My Sonor buddy who has spent hundreds if not thousands on head comparisons will tell you that Attack Heads are the best.

I like dark sounding drums. The 2 ply clear sounds like a one ply the way it resonates and the dark sound is not a dead sound in any way, shape or form. The fundamental harmonic and overtones are all very dark. Lots of resonance with just the right amount of harmonics and decay is surprisingly long.

I am a Attack head convert, if its good enough for Thomas and Steve, thats good enough for me, my ears made me a believer.
