I got my kit recently, and remembered that I would need new heads. The sizes are two 14" snares (the 6.5" X 14" standard maple and a 6.5" X 14" supraphonic ss - my main snare), 20" X 24", 8" X 12", 15" X 16", with a 10" X 14" and 16" X 18" on their way, all in Silver Sparkle. I probably won't use the 14" maple at all, and I might use the 12". Anyways, I really want to try the Remo Vintage heads, so I was thinking on the snare and toms coated Vintage Emperors over 'modern' Coated Ambassadors, clear for the snare. The bass would be a 'modern' Emperor with the stock Ludwig resonant head, with felt strips on each. What are your thoughts? I don't want to try Evans, and I know about Aquarians, and might use the Satin Finish ambassador-style heads as resonant heads, but I really want Vintage Emperors. The only thing I'm worried about is the Vintages not blending with the bass drum, or sounding dead. Thanks and sorry it's a long question.
