I've heard loads of opinions about EMADS being crappy for triggering with, but haven't heard any that are HELPFUL.
So does anyone know what bass drum heads are best used for this?

I'm pretty keen to try a few out.
But I don't have the cash atm.

Has it been known to double trigger?

Because I'd hate to fork out for a head thats about £30, and then my triggers not work with it:/

sorry but any head could double trigger if you don't set the sensitivity level on the brain correctly. The sk's are great pre-muffled heads and the muffling doesn't get in the way of the trigger, the biggest bitch about emad's muffling.

True.

SKII's are pretty controlled.

I just figured if you were going with an EMAD you'd want an SKII.

I use teh SK I anyweyz.

Yeah but it depends on how you tune it too cause my bass drums pretty clicky and it doesnt even have a danmar pad on it.
