Default Yamaha MCA: Which heads to use?

I just bought a Yammie MCA kit from eBay and I'd like to put new heads on the kit. Now I understand that the sound I'm after will dictate the choice of heads, however, I'm not really after any sound per se, I just want the drums to sing at their maximum potential. So, Yammie MCA users, what heads are on your kit? How are they tuned? What do they sound like?

Thanks!

Hey man

I've put a bunch of heads on the MCA's and i found i got the richest tone from the Evans EC2 Coateds. A good amount of sustain and a good round note. If you want more attack you could try an EC1. I liked coated heads the best on these drums. but its all personal opinion anyways.

Although I have never played a yamaha set, I would recomend Evans G1 Coated (batter) / Evans Clear GPlus (reso). Tune them to the same pitch, and you should hear pure bliss :) But like always, you should only buy heads for one drum until you find the pair that you like.

I had two or three different head combinations on my Yamaha Maple Custom Absolute kit. I ended up very much liking the Evans G2 clear batter heads over G1 clear resonant heads. I tune my kit fairly low and like a hugh resonant sound from my kit. BTW, I use an Evans EQ4 batter with the Yamaha logo-ed resonant head on my bass drum.
