Default looking for warm dry sound

went into guitar center the other day to ask for a recommendation for heads having a warm, dry sound as the heads i have are still stock

this is what he recommended to me:

snare: evans HD Dry
toms: evans hydraulics
kick: aquarian super kick 2

is this a good recommendation? would you recommend anything else?

here's an example of what I'm looking for

i realize a lot of it has to do with mic EQ, just to give you an idea

You don't need Evans Hydraulics heads for that sound. Just go with any clear two-ply head (Emperor, G2, etc.) and just tune your drums real low.

+1. An emperor or g2 will be fine, just get some moongel. To me warmth is resonance.. I fitted a hydraulic head to my snare, I admit, being black in colour was part of the appeal. It's really cold sounding and I don't like it. It sounds a bit like a marching snare when played softly (lifeless) and sounds really processed when hit hard, like an electric sample. A very metal kinda sound. Don't do it!

Why not use all Aquarian, super kick 2 on bass, focus x on snare and response 2 on toms.

i agree with this....I will add that even single ply heads tuned low can sound like that too.

it's all in the tuning

classic black dots remo are good two. and with hydro heads, tuned tight with no bottom head sounds good for toms also sticky hands toys are moongel at a fraction of the price cut them to size for the amount of muffling needed.
