Default Need help with heads for a good metal sound. (PDP Drums)

I have a PDP x7 series kit, and a 14x5 bronze pearl snare. what would you say would be the best heads for these? I like evans heads alot but im not too sure which models would work best with the kit. I want a kind of avenged sevenfold sound for the toms (really love his toms) same with the snare.

Thanks, any help is appreciated.

Default Re: Help with heads for metal sounding kit.

Been Playing metal/ Trash for a few years now and love the sound of Aquarian Performance 2 Batter's with Classic Clear Resonant! Tune my Resonant head a couple pitches under the Batter and WAALAAH!
Any 2-Ply would be most suitable Tuned Low of Course. My next purchase will be evans G2 Coated, I heard these were very nice sounding and Warm in any style and will rebound better than Performance 2's!
Good Luck

Welcome to the forum, CorruptionxXx. Just an FYI: We're an all-ages forum, so the proper way to express how much you like the Rev's tom sound is "really love their toms". Thanks.

The Rev used Remo Emperors on his toms, so if you want to stick with Evans, try some clear G2 batters over G1 resonants, or possibly some EC2 SST batters for a little more impact with a little less ring. Hope this helps.

Wasnt aware language was an issue, changed it.

I know a friend of mine has the g2 over g1 setup. although ive never heard his kit before. maybe ill go check it out.

I not totally set on evans, just a preference willing to try anything this time really.

I use evans G2's and use the Lowest possible tuning method I found on the net..my Sonor 3007's sound frickin awesome ...put them up against sets costing double..just watch tuning real low there is a fine line between low and muddy IMO

Thanks, man. You might also try the G-Plusses, which is a thicker one-ply head. It's got projection of a two-ply head with better responsiveness.
