Default Drum Head Packages

Anyone notice a drop in quality between single heads and those in packages?

I never buy the packs. My kit is bigger and I have to buy additional heads anyway.

What manufacturers are you referring to? I've already bought Evans packs and didn't have any issues with them, but this was about a 6 month ago. I watch for sales, lol. I usually buy the packs to save money, then I fill in with the heads that I need that didn't come in the pack.

I cant fathom that the manufacturer would put a lower quality head in a pre-pack than as a one-off, especially since many drummers use more drums than the pre-packs have heads...you need even quality throughout.

I don't see how they'd be lower quality.

I can't even use packs anyway, the packs never have an 18" skin for my 2nd floor tom or a 13" for my rack tom. That and I use Remo on my toms and snare and Aquarian on my bass drum. It is an expensive kit to rehead at 155GBP from thomann. *Cringes*

I have had two different sets of Evans in a pack and found no difference in quality. I have an 8 inch tom and have to buy it singly and see no difference.

I have not noticed a difference either...what has been an issue for you that causes you to bring out such an issue and what heads are you using.

I've never noticed a difference either, and like some others have said, my kit has more drums than what come in the packs so I also have to buy single sizes for some of my toms. Still I've never noticed a difference. I play Remo heads.

Thanks for the input..been gone for a few days just catching up on posts. I needed to replace 8,10,12,14,16 tom heads and noticed I could save a few dollars getting a fusion pack plus the 8 and 16. Didn't work out anyway..the packages were sold out. I did however get the 10 through 16 (Vintage Emps) at GC and they price matched Interstate Music plus a little extra off.
