Hey guys,

thanks

EC-2 don't quite damp the same way as pinstripes. They will give you the effect of trimming away some higher frequencies.

EC-1's actually sound darker.

The best way to decide in this case, buy just one, maybe for a floor tom.

g2's will offer wider tuning range. Also, you can damp to your taste with moongel if needed.

I am more of a clear drumhead fan. G2 clears have a louder/brighter attack than pinstripes.

The Ec2s are allot more open, If you don't like that it can be easily fixed with rings/tape/moongel and you get a nice thud.

I'll be the contrarian - I hated these heads and I'd never buy them again. You're much better off buying non-muffled heads and using something like moongel to dampen as you see fit. You can't un-dampen these types of heads.

I found them nearly impossible to tune - they're thicker than Oprah's money-maker. Just my opinion!

The EC2 clears are my favorite tom heads. They're what Pinstripes want to be.

I wasn't a big fan either. Too muffled. Clear and open is what I look for in heads

I'll throw in my two cents. I used pinstripe heads for as long as I remember and they were ok and held up well. At a jam session I sat behind a set of Rodgers with a bass sound to die for. Later when talking to the drummer I asked how he got that great sound and what kind of mic was he using. He smiled and said lets go look. Well, first there wasn't even a mic, the thud of the drum was organic and cut thru great in the relatively small venue (seating 75 - 100). And you guessed it, he was using the EC2's. I switched my 22" Tama bass drum to such, and they sound great. I was so impressed that I changed the Remo's PS on the concert toms and am now using Evans hydraulics instead. Nice!
