Drumhead Selection tips. please
whats up all,
I play a premier artist series birch kit and think it sounds great, but am now looking to get evn more out of them. I used to throw some evans clear g2 batter heads on the toms (12'' and 16'') with g1 resos. it sounded good but I had tune them loose to get the "lower" less ring sound that I like/ Then, the EC2's were released and I switched to those on batters, remaining with the g1 resos. They sounded better, but also need to be tuned fairly loose to get the tone i want. As a result, i dont get the rebound I want and the heads dent and pit eaisier. I'm thinkin about tightening them up and throwing some moongels on so they dont ring forever, but I am really open to trying new heads.
Does anyone have any suggestion for good heads to throw on birch kits? Again, I'm going for a lower tuning sound (i play mostly rock, but no specific genre) but want to have the rebound so i'm not "fighting" my kit when i play. my specs are (14 x 5.5 snare, 12 x 9, 13 x 10, 16x 16 (floor) toms. Kick sounds great with an emad2, but help on other heads wound be appreciated (especially toms). Also suggestions on the tuning ratio (top : bottom head) for new heads suggested would be good.
