I am looking to replace my original silver dot heads from my 80's ludwig set with double headed power toms. I am looking for a more melodic sound than what the original heads provided. Does anybody have a tried and true combination? Thanks.
I recommend that combination of heads as well-- used them for a couple of years so far with good results. I've had the same set of Remo coated Emperor batter heads on my toms for almost 8 months, and they still sound awesome, with not even a dent in them. If you wanted a little more warmth or a different look, you could put Smooth White or Ebony Ambassadors on the resonant sides of the drums.I'd just put coated emperors top with clear ambassadors bottom. That would keep the beef and open them up.
