I like to play with dark sunglasses on. If I used black heads and cymbals I would be in trouble! I tried the black cymbals a few months ago. What a joke! They sound like garbage can lids! To put it in fashion designers terms "Black Is The New Black" LOL!

Their Jack DeJohnette heads have been coated black for *years* anyway. Incidentally, those heads are totally awesome, especially on the snare. :)

I don't think it would sound any different than the standard white coating.

Well I think that if it sounds the same as the coated heads, just looks different, it would be fine.
Kinda corny, but a helluva lot better than the other black heads that sound like... Nothing. Absolutely nothing.

It's just another head to throw in with all the others.. I sometimes miss the old days when the selections were fewer and easier to choose from.

Agreed... the DeJohnette heads are great. I've got one on one of my Gretsch snare and it kills.

anybody tried their new hi-velocity head yet? Apparently it's like a coated emperor with a large thin reverse dot. I haven't been able to find these at any of my usual sources, so I haven't had a chance to try it.
