I want to get the deep tom sound, like Lars had back in the 80's. i know its the micing system and stuff that change it some, but i would like to get a similar sound out of my toms.
and i want to get a nice dry snare sound.
and a click on my bass drums, what heads should i get? supperkick II's and how do i tune those?

For click on the kick try emad2 with a slam pad and hard side of your beaters.
bash, bang, slam, whatever, yeah, ima drummer.

When I muffled and used a Danmar click pad, I just tensioned the head to where it gave me a good rebound.
The problem I had with this set up was too much rebound on more subtle kicks, almost giving me a false double.

hmm alright, does the front head play any role in the sound of a bass drum?
