I had to replace the res heads on the basses again with the stock skins.
Guitar Center messed up my order at the store with Musiciansfriend.com
They sent me a set of batter heads instead of the res heads. I should have gone to visit my friends at Sam Ash. But to avoid the drive, I got the boot.
Now I have a spare set of Remo Pnstripes.
I was thinking about returning them. But hey, you never know when you need then.
At times I'll play the Chinas up and at times down. Just like with the batter heads, I'll experiment at times. Only this time I didn't like the sound of the heads on the res side.
Funny thing is that the Gretsch stock head sounded better than I thought it would. Those are Permatone heads. They're really good skins.
Bottom line is that if you don't play with your kit, you'll never know what your gonna miss out on.
