Default 1v2 Ply BD HEAD

Hi guys, Ive got a single ply batter head on my Manu Katche Yamaha Drum Kit(16' by 16') and i was wondering what is the difference between one and two ply batter head and also witch one of the two would actually give me the best sound for that type of BD.

1 ply usually has a little more oomph and sounds a little more open. 2 play has shorter sustain and more attack and punch, much like tom heads. I would go with a 1 ply emad for that size. Actually, I don't know for sure if they make them that small. You could try just a remo powerstroke 3 on both sides.

Like Classic says, more boom and open sounding. I've bounced back and forth from EMAD single to EMAD2 dbl ply to EQ4 Single and I always come back to single ply original EMAD. To me it just has the sound I like most. Not sure about the 16" kick since I've never had the chance to work with one yet. Good thing is you have a HUGE sellection of heads to choose from.

I have said it many times. Coated Powerstroke 3 reso and clear/coated PS3 for batter. You can make your mini kick sound open and huge or tune it up Elvin style. These heads are perfect for a 16. I have used one regularly for 4-5 years now. I have never had the need for muffling, but I suppose you could felt the reso or batter for a little more control.
