Actually your writing is better than most of us Americans! But regarding the heads I really havent noticed a significant difference in how long they last. What kind of music do you play? You could really use any head head combo on that drum set, depends more about what kind of sound you are going for. The brand and series of the drums doesnt really make a difference on what type of drum head you will use. Unfortunatly you will just have to experiment and find the combos that fit you the best.

I've had issues with Evans heads going dead quicker than other brands. Remo heads are inconsistent on occasion, so you need to check em out before purchase. Other than that, nothing I've noticed.

I play rock sometimes, praise and worship most of the time, and recently I am trying to lurn jazz, but that is hard because I am kind of a beginer.
