Default Head suggestions for Pearl SMX...

Been using the stock heads (powerstroke 4's) over Evans Genera G1's and the time has come for a change.

I like the warm sound of these heads, but I would love more resonance from my toms.

Any good suggestions for head combos?

If you want crazy resonance, then get Remo Coated Ambassadors over Clear. When tuned right, those babies really do sing.

If you want a little bit more of a focused sound- that is, a little less resonance while retaining a 'note' of sorts -then get Coated Emperors over Clear Ambassadors. That's my dream combo, and I think it'd be very useful for all kinds of music. Very warm as well.

I would actually suggest a thicker head for more resonance. Check out the Evans G Plus heads. These make great batter heads (they're made from 12mil film instead of 10 like the G1) and they work well as resos too. You'll be able to get lots of sustain out of these and they're very consistent. Try coated G Plus' if you want a very warm sound.
