Very nice score they are beautiful sounding drums, what color and sizes?I just purchased a pearl session studio select kit. The kit was purchased used and in great shape besides the heads. They are destroyed. Going to replace the heads before this weekends gigs. What do you all suggest? Looking for a fat, warm, punchy tone suitable for CCM.

Punch and warmth are the qualities of the Session Studio Select with 2 outer plies of birch and 4 inner plies of mahogany.
In terms of Remo - I would go with coated Ambassadors for openness and warmth, or coated Pinstripes ala @C.M. Jones for a bit of a short fatter tone.
I went the other way for my Session Studio Select, I have CS dots and Master cast hoops for additional focus and attack, surprisingly the warmth is still prevalent.
same as above!!! Congrats!!!Congrats on getting a great set of drums. I've got Coated Pinstripes on the toms and bass of my Session Studio Select kit right now. The result is "fat, warm, and punchy." I use a Coated Ambassador on my snare though. I don't like the loss of sensitivity double-plies sometimes inflict on snare drums.
was also gonna suggest clear pins...the "industry standard" for warm, fat and punchy.I play only Ambassadors myself as more tone gets through the mix, but you probably want a 2-ply
