Head combination


What do you people think of this head setup?

10/12/14/16" Tom
Batter - Remo Pinstripe
Resonant - Remo Clear Ambassador

Snare (14")
Batter - Remo Powerstroke
Reso - Remo Diplomat

If anyone has used this combination or something like it could you tell me because these are the heads I'm thinking of getting.
Also I'm not sure about the snare reso head so if anyone knows a good snare resonant head, share. Sharing is caring.

Re: Head combination


From what I've learned in the past, as long as the brand names are the same on the top and bottom heads, there should be no problem.
Even if you use different brands on separate drums, use the same brand batter and the same brand resonance heads on that particular drum.
Mixing different brands on the top and the bottom, is where some problems come into play.
Even though some drummers are happy with the opposite brands, then it's a matter of taste.

Re: Head combination


I can personally recomend the evans g2 clear on top and g1 on bottom.

I haven't played pinstripes for a while, they're too focussed for my blood.

What has that got to do with this?

Re: Head combination


DK,

I am with skinslapper on this one, I really like the open sound the Evans G1's and G2's give me.

DK:"What has that got to do with this?"
As I said, same BRAND (Manufacturer) of heads, top and bottom and any model from the same manufacturer.

Like Skinslapper said EVANS G2 and EVANS G1. Same brand, Different Model. Clear or coated.

In other words, not all drum heads work well with with all drum brands, but as long as the heads are from the same manufacturer. for example Remo head combined with an evans don't always work well together.

A generalized synopsis and a matter of taste.

Cheers

Re: Head combination


I have Remo Pinstripe on my rack toms and my floor tom.
They are amazing! XD
They really have an explosive sound, and have great tone to them.
They come untuned quick when you first get them,
but over time they will last maybe a few weeks before coming untuned.
The heads are actually quite sturdy and pack a big punch.
Pinstripes are one of the best heads I've used so far.

Re: Head combination


Well?, your head chices sound pretty good to me. I like a double ply head on my 14 and 16''floor but i prefer single ply heads on my 10 and 12 to keep them open. For double ply's ive used pinstripes, thinskin2's, G2's etc and like them all with maybe a slight lean towards the G2's.

Re: Head combination


My setup was pinstripes for all my tom batters 10 12 13 14 16" toms

G1: 10 12 14

G2: 13 16

I might get Evans EC2s for my toms and because I moved to 14 and 16 I might move to just G2 reso heads. I might get an 18" later and make it the same combo.
