Default Heads...what's your combo?

After searching a little and not finding this thread, I thought it would be interesting to find out which combination works for you.
These are mine:
Snare Drum:
-Batter:Single Coated (same as a Remo Coated Ambassador)
-Resonant: Snare Side (same as a Remo Hazy Ambassador or a Diplomat)
Toms:
-Batter: Deep Performer (same as Remo Emperor)
-Resonant: Single Clear (same as Remo Ambassador)
Kick Drum
-Batter: Remo Powersonic (same as Remo Powersonic)
-Resonant: Avant Coated (same as Powerstroke 3...if there's a coated version)

So, what do you use?

NOTE: This is NOT a bashing thread. No hate against other brands, it's just a "get to know other's equipment" kind of thread.

Bass: clear powersonic over coated PS3.

Toms: clear PS3 over coated ambassadors, but thinking about trying pinstripes or coated emperors.

Tama Rockstar Customs: 10, 12, 14 & 22

Snare: Aquarian Hi - Energy .... Remo Ambassador (snare bottom)

I am a fan of Aquarian but it isn't easy to get their heads. They have to be ordered and it takes forever but in time.. I will replace all remaining Remo's with Aquarians or maybe Evans..

All of my Yamaha Stage Custom Kit has the stock clear singly ply Remo Reso's
The Batters are the following:

Snare Drum: Remo Weatherking Coated Ambassador
All Toms: Remo Pinstripes
Bass Drum: Remo Powerstroke Three


I LOVE the sound these give my drums. The Toms are punchy deep and full of tone and sustain, the snare smacks, and the bass drum thumps. Its beautiful. I don't think I'll ever need anything else.

Default Re: Heads...what's your combo?

All Ludwig WeatherMaster's on Classic Maples.

Snare ('67 Supraphonic): Medium Coated batter, Medium Snareside
Toms: Medium Coated on batter side, Medium Smooth on resonant Side
Bass: Heavy Smooth on both ends (with a fluffy pillow inside).

I'm gonna try either coated Emperor's or coated heavy WM's on the tom batter sides, as the floor toms are a wee bit ringy.
