Re: Coated or clear heads?


ohhhhh this is a tough one.
I like clears because they are very versatile.
They also have a very projected tone to them.
It is also hard to see marks in them.
I like Coated heads because they can tougher than most clear heads.
Coated heads also give a nice look to most sets.
But I'm going to have to go with clears.

But my favorite one is between my shoulders. Haaaaa!

Re: Coated or clear heads?


I'm using remo pinstripes on my toms but im looking to upgrade to evans ec2's. I've tried them before and you can tune them to so many different pitches and they always sound good but especially for low sounds! also i use aquarian focus-x on my snare

On my next set I will have Aquarian super kick II on the bass drum.
Remo pinstripes on my toms and maybe an Evans on my snare.
coated snare of course. Everything else clear. I won't keep factory heads this time.

Re: Coated or clear heads?


I like the Evans brand (G2 Clear). I was getting to much overtones on the Remos. Was tied of using tape with bar napkins. I also like the kevlar batter on my snare. Not much over tones and a solid snap.
