Default What heads are you using on your Force 3007?

Just got this kit and I'm using the factory Remo UT's for the resos and I tried a set of clear emporers for the batters and although they sounded okay they just didn't WOW me. I also had a hard time tuning them but I think it's because they were older heads. Anyhow I'm thinking coated vintage emporers for my next go round since they sounded so nice on my Starclassics. I also like the feel of the coated heads better. I think I'm growing away from the whole clear head thiing. They sound just too "plasticky" I guess is the word I would use. Not controlled enough for me.

What works for you with these drums?

I've played on a Force 3007 kit in a local studio a few times that had EC2 batters and sounded absolutely amazing.

I was looking at the EC2's. I saw a video on YT of guy with a set of Ludwig super maples with EC2's and they sounded really good.

edit - My bad. The heads in the video I was thinking of were clear G2s. Still sounded amazing though.

I've tried;

-stock heads over stock heads
-coated Emperors over clear Ambassadors
-G2s over G1s
-clear Ambassadors over G1s

So far I like the latter best, 10mil single ply on both sides produce a really bright, clear and punchy sound.

Cool! I've been digging the coated 2-ply over clear single ply sound for awhile now. I'm really considering going with a set of Evans either G2 or EC2 heads. I guess because they're maple I expect them to sound really huge. I've got my first gig with them tonight and I'm using coated Vintage Emporers over the stock UTs for resos. I'll report back on how I like them.

Finally played my first gig with these bad boys last night and the sounded great! The coated Vintage Emporers sounded awesome. The two floor toms had all kinds of low end and the two mounted toms had great tone with just enough cut to them. Truth be told they sounded a lot like my Starclassics did with the same heads on them. I'm always on the lookout for different stuff to try out so I'm gonna look into the Evans and Aquarian heads. Overall I'm very happy with the sound I'm getting out of them so far.

I just got my Force 3007, and was planning to exchange the toms for G2 coated over G1 Clear.

But i wasn't sure what to use for the snare and my 14 and 16 floor toms

Just thought I'd revive this thread with a little message of happiness. I bought clear emperors the other day and while tuning the 12" yesterday, the head just hit that perfect spot. All the lugs evenly tuned, and a light tap with the finger creates a MMMMmmmmmmmmmmmm tone. In my mind I was shouting "Hell yeah" and I proceeded with tuning the rest of the kit with a great smile.

I don't know why I haven't had the same luck with G2's, they should be essentially the same. But I do have this special love for Remo and it just seems to be my thing.

I have a 3005, not a 3007, but as far as I know they're the same shells.

The two head combos I've enjoyed most on my kit are:
- Evans Coated G2 over Clear G1
- Remo Clear Pinstripes over Clear Ambassadors

I also liked the sound of Aquarian Black Response II, but they didn't tune low enough for me.

I have coated Vintage Emps over clear Ambs and they sound nice and warm. I also recommend the Remo Powerstroke Pro (clear) on the Bass drum.

Decided to try a set of Evans clear EC2s. Will report back after my gigs this weekend.

Update - The EC2s worked out pretty well this weekend. They sounded very good on the drums. Nice wet attack with a fat and short sustain. Very controlled IMO. The other cool thing I noticed was that after two four hour gigs the heads still look pratically brand new. The stick marks hardly show up at all. Overall I'd recommend these heads if what I described is the sound you are looking for. Also, keep in mind that I mic my drums so volume is not an issue. EC2s would definately tone down the sound of your kit without mics on them.
