Default Some head questions...

Hi all, a few questions today...

I've recently been looking at getting some new heads and im actually going to buy some clear Pinstripes for toms (12" and 14") and an Emperor X for the snare (14").

Question (1). I play mainly metal, rock, alternative what would be a good combination of resonant heads to use with my already chosen batters?

Question (2). But also whilst thinking about different brands and whatever, I'd like to try everything I can before settling on these heads so basically the question is what are the Evans and Aquarian alternatives (if any?) to clear Pinstripes and the Emperor X heads?

and finally

Question (3). And what would be a good bass head combination to match these heads?

Many thanks, Adam x

Evans Hydraulics for the toms and Remo Powerstroke 4 or Aquarian Super Kick II for the BD.

Thanks for the replies about alternatives but what about a reso head to go with clear Pinstripes on toms and a reso to go with an Emperor X on the snare?

95% of drummers use a 1-ply 10mil clear head such as the Remo clear Ambassador or the Evans G1 (or other brands' equivalents) for resos, no matter what batter head they're using.

Again, most drummers use a 3mil snare-side head, such as the Remo hazy snare-side Ambassador or an Evans Hazy 300. That's where I'd start.
