Default What heads should I use?

I have a old Percussion Plus Drum set and I need to know what heads I should use. I listen mostly to metal and I want to know what heads are best for metal. I also want them to have a deep sound.

14" snare drum
12" Tom
13" Tom
16" Floor Tom
22" Bass Drum

Well, you might have to be a little more specific on what kind of sound you want out of your drums. (In terms of sustain and sound, for instance.)

However, if you're going to be playing metal, strong, durable heads would definitely be a good idea. 2-ply heads like the Remo Emperor and Evan's G2 for the batter side would provide durability and would also mute some of the overtones of the drum, if that's the sound your looking for.

+1 on the two-ply heads

Clear heads would be better than coated heads as these are generally louder with more attack. Look at Remo Emperor, Pinstripe and Powerstroke 3.

I know 2 drummers that play metal and they use Emperors and Pinstripes.
