Default New Heads ..?

Hi Everyone ! I'm The Happy Owner Of a PDP 805 With The "ROCK" Configuration (24" BD,13" TOM,16" & 18" FLOOR, 14x7" SNARE) I Have Clear Ambassadors On All Toms With Evans E-Ring But They're Pretty Used ... Now I Wanna Change Them And I Wondered Wich Heads Would Sound Like Ambassador + E-rings ? Would The Powerstroke 3 or 4 Sound The Same ? Or Maybe The Pinstripe ?

Well Thanks Everybody,

Max.

HEY MAN MY NAME IS MAX TOO! Only the best drummers are named Max!
Haha

Ok so Powerstroke 3's are basically the same thing as Ambassadors and have a dampening ring built into them so that would be a better choice to replicate the Ambassador+E-Ring. That's not to say that the Powerstroke 4's are bad tom heads. They work great for that "fat" and round short-sustain sound.

Happy drumming!

Yep agreed I think the PS3's are a bit deeper though. It'll still be pretty close though.

Since you like the E rings just go for the Evans EC2s SST. I own them and they sound great.

The EC2 SST's have a great all around rock sound. They can be tuned low or more in the mid range depending on the tonal quality you're aiming to achieve. You may find that you don't even need the E-Rings. To decrease sustain, tune the reso head a bit lower (for a bit of a pitch drop during the sustained portion) or a bit higher to to cut off the sustain tail faster.

Cheers!

I have to agree. I had a few different heads (Coated Vintage A's, clear G2's, coated G2's) and ended up using rings on all of them. Just got clear EC2 SST's and I love them. Have them on both my kits and my son's kit now.
